Why am I not surprised?

I've heard stories that suggest this sort of thought at other companies. I've heard allegations that Ford did this with the Pinto.

But surely visiting that McDonalds of such historic note is more meaningful than Notre Dame! :lol:

Derek wrote:The woman from that case suffered severe burns, and her original lawsuit only sought the medical costs. The jury ended up awarding more because the case was so egregious. The coffee they served was at something insane like 175 degrees, and it came out that McDonald's was aware of the danger but estimated that it was cheaper to eat any resulting legal costs for whatever reason. The final insult was a coordinated corporate campaign to use that case to push a media narrative that lawsuits had gotten out of control in this country.

Also that McDonald's was in Abq and I've been there. I never saw the Notre Dame before it burned but I have that.

I tried to bring all this up last night but my mom practically put her fingers in her ears and went ‘lalalalala’ while my stepdad argued it was still frivolous and it didn’t matter how hot the coffee was because people should expect coffee to be hot.

Sort of what Ford Motor Company did when their memo came out about not installing a safety device in their rear-end exploding Pintos.

I guess it's still a better memo than the one about Jews.

People posting too many political and controversial stories on Instagram, who act like they are better than you and the saviours of the planet. But in reality they spread "peace" in an aggressive way and act shocked when people get pissed off with them.
