I took some kind of arthritis medication that was hailed as the greatest stuff since penecillan. It worked and bam, it was deemed poison. Lawsuits ensued.

I asked my PCP and he was obviously frightened, I would be some kind of litigious monster ready to rake him over the coals for prescribing this stuff for me. I'm not one of those types. I told him outright if it gave me cancer or what have you I woudln't cause him any grief about it.

Why wouldn't I?

He was doing the best with the information he had. He wasn't a doctor so he could hurt people for heavens sake.

This business of lawsuits because you can bring them is nonsense.

Most recent example: I stumbled while entering a bike shop for a bike repair. In the process (I didn't let the staff know, I really hurt my arm, it's a bruised mess) They in turn, stated they'd just moved into this facility and knew one had to step 'UP' to clear the floor and more than one customer had their foot caught on the entrance and had gone sprawling to the floor)

I'm still not going to sue.

They're great at bike mechanics, not very bright at litigiousness.

I mildly suggested a cheap can of orange paint on the steps or a watch your step sign... I think (I hope I 'wrong)

Innocent people getting shot by other people playing soldier.
This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

People referring to those they don't know as 'bro' or 'dude'.

Don't call me 'bro' or 'dude'. Doing so makes you sound a bit less than bright...

You may not realize it, and I not in the least insulted if you call me 'bro' or 'dude', but you sound less than adequate referring to strangers in that manner.

Honestly, it doesn't cost much if when addressing others you're unfamiliar with as sir or ma'm.

Ah, unless you care to appear slow...

Of all the homophones to confuse, that's not quite as high on my list. I'd just be happy if everyone on the internet knew the difference between "to" and "too."

...having to watch a 30 second commercial on some new drug on the market, and they have 20 seconds of dangerous side effects in the voice track. Worse is when the voice track speaker rattles off the side effects so fast that it sounds like you are at a auction.

I do this frequently, one of the pumps at the station I normally use runs 3-4x slower so I don't use it unless it's the only one open. I know I look like a jerk when I do it though.

Yes!!

Two / To / Too
They're / Their / There
Accept / Except
Me / Myself
etc.

There are far too many grammatical issues to call out specifically. It's tough for me to not think someone is a mental midget when I see things like "There not ready to except too forms of payment..."

How about the morons who aren't using a gas station's air pumps,
but then park in front of the air pumps anyway, blocking anyone
with serious PSI issues?

***********************************************************************************

FYI: In case anyone out there is not aware, QT (Quik Trip) gas stations
always offer FREE air. Why pay somebody else when you can get all the air
you need for free?
