Seems some woman sent nude pix of herself to her husband, on his cellphone. No biggie there, fine. Next, the phone got accidentally left behind in a McDonald's. Whoops, but it happens. They get hold of said McD's and the place says they'll find it and hang on to it until they can retrieve it. When the nude pix end up on the 'Net, what do these people do?

They sue the McDonald's Corporation, the owner of the franchise involved and the restaurant's manager, saying they have suffered emotional distress, embarrassment and damage to their reputations. Also, because the woman's name, address, and phone number appeared online along with the photos, they move, and add that cost to the lawsuit.

In this day and age of digital photos and instant sending, this kind of thing happens more and more. That part doesn't bug me, but what does is the naivety people show in doing so. Look, if you're gonna take pictures that you don't want others to see, don't have them where they can be easily accessed or lost. Simple thing that we all should have learned as kids: don't do something you'd be ashamed for anyone else to know about. And, really, if you do, and you get busted? Man up and deal with it. This is not McD's fault. You're just being a greedy, stupid pair of bastards, suing them.

I have a dream, a dream of a world where people understand personal responsibility. Apparently, it is going to forever stay a dream.
