Not a long post today, but thought I would share some thoughts with you about the following article. Check it out...... (My Notes in BOLD)
DALLAS – A Texas woman is suing the Dallas Cowboys and owner Jerry Jones, saying her buttocks was severely burned when she sat on a bench outside Cowboys Stadium. Okay, a bench outside Cowboys Stadium burned her butt. I'm with ya so far.
In a lawsuit filed last week in Tarrant County, Jennelle Carrillo said the black marble bench was in direct sunlight on a hot August afternoon before a Cowboys scrimmage last year. Gotcha. Bench / Sunlight / August afternoon. Just gathering the facts. A weather official says the high temperature on that day was 101 degrees. The weather man will testify it was 101 degrees. Keep going.
Carrillo's lawyer, Michael Wash, said his client didn't know the extent of the burns until after receiving medical attention. She knew she had been injured, just not how badly. Poor lady. The lawsuit claims she was hospitalized and underwent skin grafts. Skin grafts to the burned butt that sat on a hot , black marble bench on an August afternoon when it was 101 degrees outside next to Cowboy Stadium
The lawsuit claims there were no warnings about sitting on the benches in hot weather. Oh man! I was on her side until the last sentence of the story. Here's the difference between smart people and stupid people.
Smart People: I'm tired of standing up. I need to sit down and rest. It is so hot. I should find some shade. But, there is a nice bench there...even though it is in the exposed sunlight. Let me touch it with my finger to see how hot it is. OW. That is hot. I should not sit there.
Stupid People: I'm tired of standing up. I need to sit down and rest. It is so hot. I should find some shade. But, there is a nice bench there...even though it is in the exposed sunlight. Let me plant my BIG ASS on it and stay there until I need skin grafts to the third degree burns on my BIG ASS.
This is why we DON'T want warning signs. It saves the stupid people who marry other stupid people who then produce stupid people. I see this being thrown out of court and Michael Walsh becoming the laughing stock of Texas. I'm out!!!!
