As the saying goes, "You can't fix stupid!" But then again, perhaps suing someone else when it's your own fault will help!!

I'm really glad that she is okay - it could have turned out much worse. But I really hope they rule against her. People just no longer want to take responsibility for their own actions and instead, when they make a bad decision, they want to blame it on others. And then, to top it off, when it is their fault, they still want to look for a way to make an easy buck by suing people.

Like the lady who sued McDonald's because she spilled hot coffee in her lap while holding it between her legs and driving a car! And she won!!! Seriously?

Or the guy who wanted to commit suicide and intentionally jumped in front of a NY subway train. It didn't kill him, so he sued the subway and won!!

Oh well, the insurance company will pay her to settle, causing the insurance premiums to go up, which will be passed along to the passengers in the form of higher cruise fares. But that's okay, in the long run, it still won't fix stupid!
