no personal responsibility…

If this doesn’t get thrown out of court faster than our non-existent bullet train, our legal system drops yet another notch in my eyes of actually being intelligent purveyors of justice in America…

Woman Suing Green Iguana For ‘Flaming Shot’ Injuries
http://www2.tbo.com/content/2008/jul/16/woman-suing-green-iguana-flaming-shot-injuries/

Basically, this woman goes into a bar in St. Petersburg, orders a shot of Bacardi 151 on fire, then spit it out and caught herself on fire because she got scared of the flames.  She ended up being rushed to the hospital and couldn’t work for two months due to the burns, so she’s suing the bar.  Oh yeah, but one other thing – she was underage at the time that this happened…

“I’m suing because I should not have been let in,” Shannon said today.  “If I weren’t let in, none of the events would have happened.”

Are you f’ing kidding me?!  If you would’ve caught me trying to drink underage, none of this would’ve happened!  The manager is even quoted earlier in the article that someone had told her that others were buying the girl drinks all evening, presumably because she couldn’t actually do so herself.  You’ve just got to love the level of personal responsibility of today’s youth – I mean, my generation has had its dumb moments, but come on?!  What are the chances that the judge will turn the tables and not only dismiss the lawsuit against the bar, but also add in some jail time for underage drinking?

And the biggest kicker of them all?  Apparently she’s currently enrolled in college under a criminal justice major…
