Respect for one another seems to have been thrown out the window by a lot of people. I was always taught to "Take Responsibility for Your Own Actions". I have read a lot of news stories over the last few years where people unhappy with a situation finds someone other than themselves to blame, then sues that person and in most cases wins a large sum of money for being wronged. This is OK if you were truly wronged, but if you are Obese is it McDonald's fault that you chose to buy their product? Or because the cup of coffee doesn't say "Caution Hot" is it their fault when you spill it, I always expect a cup of coffee to be hot when I order it, But now I'm sure glad the cup tells me so.
And how is it right for someone to rob a convenience store and then sue the clerk and the owner of the store because the clerk returned fire with a pistol when the robber pulled a gun, and if he chooses he can also sue the manufacturer of the gun and the bullets that this clerk used. (Because if they had not manufactured these weapons, the clerk wouldn't have had access to them and the robber wouldn't have been wronged) Now come on "Who was really wronged here" I think the robber was IN THE WRONG, NOT WRONGED, but guess who is winning a settlement--THE WRONG PERSON!
Then a prisoner sues the state and prison system when he falls out of bed. Now whose fault really is it that he was sleeping in this bed, he is there due to his own actions and how can he be due a settlement because he bumped his little head by falling out of his little bed after being incarcerated for committing a crime.
OK you see where I am going with this, We all need to take care of each other, Say I'm sorry and mean it when you mess up, Take Responsibility for your own Actions and don't try to blame it on someone else. When we get back to living life and quit looking for a way to make a quick buck at someone else's expense, RESPECT will soon follow. There are a lot of people who actually need help and support, there are true victims who deserve compensation to help with real medical expenses and shame on those who try to manipulate the system to gain a settlement not actually due to them.
