Lawsuits to punish corporations are the only way to get corporations to change. You have to hurt them financially: They won't change just because we ask them to or tell them to.

I would take the note to the gf and tell her I've already been instructed in the matter by the FIL, until I hear further from him that is the basis upon which I will operate. And I will not respond to notes. Then I'd crumple up the note, stuff it in her mouth, get her purse, take out 2 $20s and thank her for the bottle of wine.

No, no, no, no, no. Remember what Romney told us? Corporations are people.

And people have consciences. And consciences guide us to do the right thing.

Lawsuits that are trying to recover damages I can understand. Even ones that are trying to cover future expenses that are a direct result of someone else's actions.

This crap about someone hurt my feelings or made me feel stupid, so they should pay me thousands of dollars? Or garbage like this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liebeck_v._McDon... is why I think that tort law needs to be reformed.

I'm reading the comments and this poster nailed it:

Okay, and I just got to the part where ang gets called out for not being able to read. And on her birthday, too!
;)

I'm sorry, I love you, but that exchange made me LOL. "No, I can't read at all. Bitch."

I have a question. Since for the past many years, I've sat smugly aside while watching single women get depressed over Valentine's Day and this year I find myself facing a nice dish of crow... go out (with single girls) or stay in with a movie and try not to drink an entire bottle?

I'm taking the 15th off from work and booked myself a spa appointment, trying to be pro-active, and I was planning this even before the depressing news on Sunday. But now that I've actually GOTTEN the depressing news, I'm absolutely dreading V-day. I want to have surgery or something so I can be unconscious for the whole thing.

ITA. I have worked on SO many lawsuits, most of the personal injurty, medical malpractice type cases, and when the money goes beyond what somenoe actually needs, I think "Money won't bring back your baby/wife/mother."

Aw, really? I guess I've never cared much about V day -- I like the sentiment that it conveys, but I'm not into wanting gifts or flowers or anything on that day.

Me to nick recently: "Do we even need to do cards for valentine's day?"

Nick: "We probably should." (with a tone of "we should do SOMETHING for crying out loud,we're pathetic")

I also have gotten together with other single friends on that day and had a blast, so maybe you could do that?

Valentine's Day is an awesome day to go out with your single girlfriends. You must know someone not hooked up. The thing is the guys out that evening 90% single. There might be a few guys where their lady works shift work or something like that but the majority are single.

Something to think about.

Thanks. Yeah, I have single friends, I just have to find out if A is free because her mom will still be in town and if L is free because she might have a test for work the next day.

I've never made a big deal out of V day before but the thought of Jasper spending it with someone else makes me want to hurl myself from the balcony.

I think it's a good thing her name comes up now and again. She's not forgotten.
