“I’m going to sue you!”
Raise your hand if you’ve ever heard a person yell that phrase at another human being before. I think I’ve heard it a few times in my lifetime. I’ve even heard soldiers claim they’re going to “sue the government” and then other soldiers say “you can’t sue the government!”. It’s all such bullshit.
Recently, I stumbled on a news story of a couple of dudes in New Jersey (pardon me if I don’t have all my facts straight, I really don’t care) attempting to sue Subway for $5 Million dollars because their foot long sandwich was not exactly a foot long; or 12 inches. Right? Seriously, $5 million dollars? Who comes up with that figure anyway?! Probably some rich lawyer that feeds on people like these two dudes in New Jersey. So I don’t pin the blame all on them. Obviously they were manipulated by some form of greed or another.
The whole point of this blog entry is to point out just how greedy and lazy people are in America. Allow me to rewind a bit, too. This will help solidify my point. And if not, oh well. Since President Obama has become our president, it seems people have just been flocking to the welfare office. I’ve heard stories from people on unemployment or other programs about how they’ve just milked the system, blah blah blah. I’ve heard these stories with my own ears, people. Anyway. That is not really the whole point of this entry.
The point of this blog entry is I wish people would find it in their hearts to put in an honest 40 hour work week. I understand times are tough. Trust me, I’ve been there. I’ve seen rock bottom. I know how hard it is to find decent work that’s bearable and fun. Since I’ve been out of the service, I’ve worked my fair share of shit paying jobs. I’ve taken my lumps and kept on, though. Now my current job, I get to deal with the underbelly scum of the city. And it breaks my heart how people don’t try. I’ve heard every excuse in the book.
For those two people in New Jersey that have taken it upon themselves to finally “get there’s”, you’re doing nobody a favor. You’re actually hurting the system, if you will. Subway now has to recoup that loss by raising prices or cutting back or whatever it is they have to do to unfuck the $5 million they’re about to lose. And the asshole judge and the scumbag lawyer who’re about to reward you two fuckheads with $5 million just so they can get their cheesy ass cut are filthy pigs as well, and apart of the problem.
One last thing and then I will close for the night. Did you know a big rumor that’s going around other countries about the United States? We are “sue-happy.”! Can you fucking believe that?! We are sue-happy. Canada thinks so, and so does Europe. How do I know? I’ve been told by a Canadian AND I’ve been told by many Europeans. It makes me sick. It makes me sick to my stomach that people can’t just go out and make a decent living by working hard…ah fuck it.
