Too Fat for Fast Food?

Yeah, Yeah…I know. It has been FOREVER since I updated my blog. I’ve been busy. Increased workload, then I was laid off from my job, now searching for a new job and somehow becoming the errand runner for everyone since I’m no longer employed. Just for the record, searching for a job is way harder than going to work everyday. FOR. REAL.
I found it necessary to update the blog this morning after reading a news story regarding a man who is suing White Castle because he can’t fit into their standard size booths. I’m not surprised at all considering people are ‘sue happy’ these days. Frivilous lawsuits are aplenty. Honestly, if I order coffee I expect it to be hot. That’s a given, but apparently not everyone agrees with me since the plaintiff was awarded $2.86 million dollars. A judge later reduced to a mere $64,000…hmmm…
Okay, so back to the White Castle lawsuit. The guy suing White Castle claims he was unable to fit into the restuarant booths and was “humiliated” and ‘felt like an outcast”. DUDE, 1/3 of Americans are obese. In addition, I read statistics a few years ago that stated 68% of Americans are overweight. I seriously doubt he was in the minority-especially while eating at a White Castle. His noted weight was 290 pounds. Oh, and for the record, 12 years ago I weighed 301 pounds. I sometimes had trouble fitting into booths so I opted to sit at a table or GO THROUGH DRIVE THRU. I think this lawsuit is bologna (which, by-the-way I do not eat nor do I recommend eating because it is gross).
IF YOU ARE TOO FAT TO FIT INTO THE WHITE CASTLE BOOTH-DON’T EAT THERE! Simple, right? I guess not.
White Castle received the complaint from this guy and they responded with a letter and 3 coupons for White Castle burgers. He had the nerve to complain because the free coupons did not include cheese. Seriously? Get a grip.
Once I attended a family cookout and sat in a lawn chair that immediately crashed to the ground. The chair was NOT defected. The chair broke(in two places) because I was too fat. I exceeded the weight limit of the chair. I was embarrassed…sure. However, it was not the fault of my aunt and uncle for not buying chairs that would support my weight. How ridiculous would it be to serve them with a lawsuit, especially since I was there to EAT. Good grief.
Whatever. The point of this post is to basicially say this guy is an idiot. He’s eating at White Castle, which to my knowledge is not known for their healthy menu choices. In fact, after visiting their website I noticed their current promotion offers $5 off a CRAVE CASE. What is a Crave Case, you ask? It is a box of 30 hamburgers. Well, there you go.
Lastly, I will disclose I have never eaten at a White Castle restuarant. I once watched Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle (I would typically NOT admit that). oh, and I once was
held hostage stuck on a train for 11 hours and the food cart only sold White Castle microwave burgers (in a 2 pack) and peanut M&Ms. I ate maybe 30, uh, I mean 4 during my hellacious ride on that stupid train. That is a completely different story which I will tell at a later date. Truly interesting. If anyone had the right to sue, it would have been me. The train ride was really that bad.
