Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Our Litigious Society:

Part I:

A woman has decided to sue Campbell's because her child was eating a can of soup and allegedly found a human tooth in the contents.

Now, I'm not saying that this woman didn't find the tooth in her soup. I am, however, saying that there was no harm done, and a lawsuit in this case is ludicrous.

Part II:

Will Smith's housekeeper is suing for 1640 hours of unpaid overtime. An outrage? In some cases, this might be worth a complaint. But, Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, offered her $25,000 in annual bonuses, and she refused. This woman was given room, board, and $1000 per week for domestic cleaning and cooking services, and she has the nerve to complain that they didn't pay her overtime? Please.

The kicker - she's seeking $175,000 in damages. What $#@&* damages? She had to work more than 40 hours? Madam, would you like a little cheese with that whine? What has happened to the American work ethic? Has it come to this? I guess it has.
