No I didn't get that memo. So, if I go out tonight, get too tipsy, come home and puke on the rug, can I sue the bar for the cost of replacing it? Or better yet, can I sue a lawyer for not finding out about it and filing a suit, since I obviously can't be expected to open a phone book?
Geesh. I swear, some people are out looking for a reason to sue. I have a friend who's always coming up with new ideas, like "Let's go to Wal-mart and I'll slip and fall and break my arm, and then sue them!" He's never acted on it, but the fact that he could probably get away with it is obscene.
Seriously. My clothes were eaten of by a goat once when I was 5 or 6, and my mom got mad at me, half-dragged me to the car and gave me a lecture about standing too close to the fence. And then we left, because.... well my clothes had been eaten off. We still go back today, it's one of my favorite restaurants.
