More From The "Are You Kidding Me" File

Credit to The Journal News (and AP):
DANBURY, Conn. (AP) - Danbury officials have been notified they are being sued by a student who was awakened in class by a teacher who made a loud noise.

Documents filed with the Town Clerk, a prelude to a lawsuit, claim that a sleeping student suffered hearing damage when his teacher woke him up by slamming her hand down on the boy's desk in December.

Attorney Alan Barry says 15-year-old Vinicios Robacher suffered pain and "very severe injuries to his left eardrum" when teacher Melissa Nadeau abruptly slammed the palm of her hand on his desk on Dec. 4.

A city official says the matter has been referred to Danbury's insurance carrier.
This is our world. All we do is bitch, moan, sue, complain, and just flat-out quit. We're paying over $3.50 per gallon of gas around these parts, we can't trust our politicians, and we're really not sure who we CAN trust. We've still got innocent people dying overseas, are focusing too much on building schools in places that aren't in the US, and care more about worthless celebritites than the fact that New York city was recently terrorized (at the military recruiting station Times Square) and NOBODY seems to care.

Maybe that's my problem. Maybe I should just quit. Just give up. I mean, Hay-sooz Christmas (which is a nicer way of saying "Jesus Christ"), we have to get our shite together. I don't want to head off on a rant but come on - whoever it was that was involved in that infamous McDonald's Coffee suit seems to be the people who started all of this (the litigious world that we live in). Gee - coffee might be hot...YOU THINK?

OK...must stop before suffering dangerous meltdown...might...say...things...I instead enjoy this!
Thank you, Rob Leth of Global Television Network in Canada, for giving me a laugh and showing me remarkable professionalism.
