So maybe they were in the pool *and* had food poisoning. Proving this may win them the case. It will, however, open them to the loss of their lawsuit money when they get sued by family whose vacation was ruined by finding vomit and diarrhea in the pool.

My thoughts exactly on seeing the photos: either you admit you were faking it or you admit you went in the water park within seven days of having had explosive diarrhea. Which is worse?

I think the satisfaction survey they filled after the trip was more damning than the photos.

I've gotten a tummy ache from something I ate that didn't agree with me before, and I've also had legit food poisoning. With actual food poisoning you're either laying in bed praying for death or in the bathroom with stuff coming out of both ends, praying for death.

Went to Florida with the in-laws many years ago, we all stayed in the same house. Ate at an Italian restaurant, I had chicken parm, FIL had chicken Marsala. We were the only ones who had chicken dinners that evening. He and I were both up at 2-3am occupying the 2 only bathrooms in the house. Thankfully I was only puking. He has it coming out of both ends. I didn't feel safe until 4-5pm that day. He was in rough shape until the following morning. Worst sickness I've ever experienced.

Likewise. A stomach ache from something (I'm allergic to sorghum [not wheat, not gluten, not vaccines nor made-up shiat to be a snowflake, JUST sorghum]) is one thing. I can live with not reading ingredient lists.

Bought a ham steak from Walmart from their open-air display once & didn't choose from the back. Made it for breakfast the next morning. About 4 hours later my guts gurgled. I have since apologized to my bathtub, trashcan, toilet, the bacteria in my septic tank, and singlehandedly brought unknown Gods into existence by praying to them.

Food poisoning isn't just a belly-ache because there's more onion powder or paprika or salt than you're used to.

What's the point of jailing them? Given the cost of doing that, it would've been more productive to simply increase the fines imposed, and perhaps just sentence them to probation if they were somehow considered at risk for reoffending.
 
2021-02-28 3:17:06 PM  
I have been to that water park. It is pretty terrible. The food is pretty awful. However, it won't poison you.

Glad to see some proper punishment for people committing fraud and driving up the costs of holidays and insurance fir the rest of us.

/literally this afternoon booked a holiday about 10 minutes from there....... should have had the jab by the summer
 
2021-02-28 3:19:10 PM  
If a friend of mine or a family member did this I would definitely alert the cruise company and send them screen captures. But, to be fair, I would only do this because they were stupid enough to make a claim about food poisoning and then post pictures of them enjoying themselves! Stupidity of that level deserves to be punished.

I got mine from bad seafood, oysters specifically. I've broken bones, got stitches, tore up my ankle, hell I even set my arm on fire once. I've never felt pain like the stomach cramps I had. They lasted 2 or 3 days.

I got it just before leaving on a goddamn flight to Japan. I was puking and crapping every 15-20 minutes. I remember thinking that if the plane crashed, I wouldn't be upset.

While we're on an air-travel theme... don't consume airport sushi, even if it's the only food around when rushing to make your connecting flight.

For a while there were huge numbers of dubious "food poisoning" claims about package holidays. There were several Claims Management Companies (and even solicitors) who advertised saying, in effect "Come to use and we'll get your holiday for free". The industry put up with it for a while, because fighting cases costs a lot more than a bit of conversation, but eventually became sufficiently pissed up that they started investigating in details and, rather than just fighting claims, going after the claimants for fraud.

Oh. We live in a world where the disabled don't pop a fistful of Vicodin and have a out of the ordinary functioning day.

So how long will in take for food-delivery-app companies to investigate fraudulent claims of having not received food? Because charge backs put a restaurant out of business.

My house is, West-to-East:
livingroom: my bedroom
dining room
kitchen:office
bathroom
hallway
parents room>laundry room

I didn't even try to make it through the house to the bathroom when things gurgled the first time.

The roses next to the porch did exceptionally well last Summer.

The roses on the north side are gonna thrive this next Spring after all the times I puked while undergoing cancer treatment.

Well, maybe with all the social media posts all week long saying how great of time they were having. Or maybe it was the questionnaire they filled out after the vacation saying that they had a great time I would book it again. But you're right, they are completely innocent and we should go fund them for the amount of the fines. You first.

Well. It all depends. Some people would definitely put on a good face even while having to deal with diarrhea. Hell. People will put on a good face while dying. No one knew my uncle was dying of serosis of the liver until the announcement of the funeral.
I'm not pulling this out of thin air.
I've personally seen and known of people being sick and pushing on. AND having seen it personally, I find this idea of some pictures or videos prove someone didn't spend time farked or incapacitated all the other time that that picture of video doesn't document. It's actually very disingenuous that we will judge someone's disability on one good day.  Seen it personally. One day of sheer will and Vicodin doesn't mean someone didn't spend the rest of the month staring at the wall.
AND drinking a bottle of Imodium and making the best of your vacation doesn't mean you weren't sick the entire vacation.

Watching the Justified episode where the guy is on the run from US Marshalls and the cartel with the GF. She orders the ceviche from a taco truck when they stop for food. Now, they are on the run while she's got the runs.
