These days it seems like people are sue happy. There are so many rules set up so businesses and stuff can guard against being sued, it’s ridiculous. And it’s because people will sue for the smallest stupid things. If people would only sue for things that mattered. For instance, yesterday my buddy Daniel opened up a popsicle and put his lips on it. Realizing it was too cold he pulled away. He then noticed something white across the red popsicle. At first glance you’d think it was part of the wrapper, but then we noticed the wrappers were clear plastic. He said “I think it’s my lip”. At which point I examined his bottom lip to see a bloody spot in the shape of the white thing on the popcicle. Yes, people, he ripped his lip off. Now I think it is our duty to sue for popcicles that are too cold.
