The sound of one hand clapping: Had a somewhat close call with a total crazy biatch on a free dating site.

2 weeks after starting online dating I got a message from a girl in another country. I had said to myself I wouldn't do long distance relationships but she seemed really nice. That was my first mistake.

Anyway, decided to message her back as she seemed nice. Fast forward 2 months, I've grown to like her a lot, we have loads in common and are discussing meeting up. 2 weeks after that and I've booked the flight and hotel. 1 week after that she went full blown psycho because I had gone to the cinema with 2 mates, and one of them was a girl. Crazy biatch was furious with me. I had destroyed her life. She wasn't sure how she was going to carry on living and I had taken away the one hope she had for happiness. I was a disgusting man who had used her and then cheated on her. She didn't even want to hear from me again, let alone see me. Amazing how I managed all this considering that we weren't in a relationship and that we had never even met. And the girl I went to the cinema with, she was genuinely just a friend and in a relationship but I explained this to crazy biatch and it didn't make any difference.

So I cancelled the hotel reservation, lost the money on the flight but was just thankful that I found out how crazy she was before I went over there. I dread to think how that might have turned out. Despite originally saying that she didn't want to hear from me, she then continued to send me crazy messages on the dating site until I deleted my account. She sent me a few messages on Facebook too and I just ignored those. Finally she seems to have gone away, for now.

The only upside to this is that everyone I work with enjoyed hearing the story and got a good laugh out of just how deluded some people can be.

ongbok: stonicus: ongbok: Didn't read the article, but did the website even know that this guy tried to kill the first woman? Did the police contact them about his involvement? Was there any realistic way that they could have known that he tried to kill the first woman? If not then I really don't see how the family of the second woman would have a case either.

Go read the actual history of the McDonalds coffee lawsuit. It was not frivolous in any way shape or form. If anything, it showed just how super-sized of an asshole McDonalds can be.

What does what I posted have to do with McDonalds?


It has everything to do with the fact I clicked the quote button on the wrong post... =)

IRQ12: ManOfTeal: ....You are correct. An entire generation of people would have grown up having no idea that coffee was hot if that one idiot didn't take one for the team and force companies everywhere to write derp on their coffee cups.

That's all I'm saying. Why is it that the rest of us have to suffer because of one moron? The McDonald's coffee thing was just the beginning of a long line of these occurrences.

The Mcdonalds coffee thing was just the beginning of a very successful PR campaign to turn people against their own interests.

Watch 'Hot Coffee' and/or down your own research on the topic and come back and tell us how silly the lawsuit was.

Even ron paul fanboys realize that without regulation all that is left is tort.


I'll get right on that after I mount my legal defense against the makers of both aluminum foil and microwaves.

bulldg4life: ManOfTeal: Sounds like someone has mounting medical bills that she cannot afford and is getting desperate.

Hell, it may work, McDonald's had to pay up when that one dumb-ass spilled hot coffee on themselves.

Though, on the flip side, should you be able to sue the bar you got picked up in if the guy who picked you up turns out to be a psychopathic killer?

I love that people continually bring up the McDonald's coffee thing. Ignoring the fact that McDonald's actually did keep their coffee at a temperature too hot to be considered safe without proper notification.

It continues to be the shining example of frivolous lawsuits...except that it wasn't one
