McDonalds Lounge

McDonalds Lounge

Driving back from a weekend trip a few weeks ago, we stopped at a McDonald’s.  I like McDonald’s.  Always have.  Now, with kids, it makes long trips all the better since they get a new toy to play with.  Anyway, the one we stopped at was really nice.  They had flat screen TV’s, nice soft chairs set up coffee house style and just an overall relaxing, clean feel about it.  I know that on my long trips back and forth to college, it would have been so nice to kick back in a recliner for a half hour and eat lunch before getting back on the road instead of sitting on a hard 20 minute bench (20 minutes because that is all you can take before you have to leave).  I found this article online.

I like it!  Let’s get a moratorium now on all the other fast food restaurants, especially Burger King and Taco Bell that ALWAYS look and feel dirty when you eat in.


Frivolous, Ridiculous and Stupid Lawsuits

January 25, 2007

I think everyone can agree this ranks up there as something that must be stopped.  Suing people and companies is quite old but recently, within the past 20 years, it has simply gotten out of control.  I found a great site that lists many of these stupid ones.

A few examples:

  • Due to 28 seconds of turbulence on an American Airlines flight in 1995, some passengers are $2 million richer.
  • A store worker in WV got 2.2 million after she injured her back opening a jar of pickles.
  • Bill Wyman, formerly of the Rolling Stones sued a man who for using his name.  Problems is, this guy was BORN Bill Wyman.  The Bill Wyman who was a Rolling Stone was born with the name William George Perks and just adopted the stage name of Wyman.
  • A man was  found naked and dead on the back of a Killer Whale at SeaWorld.  Guess he snuck past security.  Anyway, his parents are suing saying that the Whale was portrayed as a lovable stuffed toy and not the killer it is.
  • McDonalds…hot coffee…’nuff said

Ok…I think we all can agree we need a permanent moratorium on these sort of suits…either that or get some Judges in office who were actually born with a brain and know when to throw this sort of junk out.
