Man Sues Cable Company For Making Him Lazy  
You remember the guy who tried to sue the fast-food joints for making him fat? Well, someone just out-stupided him. Yes, this jackass is suing Charter Cable for making him and his family lazy and his wife fat. Apparently, he tried to have the service disconnected, but it wasn't...and so he got 4 years of free cable. Since he allegedly promised his family they could watch TV "as long as the cable was on", this made them fat and lazy, and this is the fault of the cable company for "not allowing him to make the choice as to what was best for his family"

I guess it never occurred to him to turn off the TV, or unplug it, or, I dunno, shag his fat ass off the couch and do anything other than sit there.

Thanks to etherpunk, for showing me this and lowering my opinion of humanity one more notch

You know, the cable company should sue him for money owed for services rendered.

I agree! I'm wiating to hear that he backed down after they threatened to have him jailed for illegal cable or something.

if he doesn't win a suit for his claims, he'll be trying to figure out how to pay the bill that Charter is going to throw at him now that they know how long he's had free service.

what an asshat.

If I didn't think he'd sue the sporting goods company, I'd take a bat to that dude's head and face.

We only seem to have free will when it's convenient; everyone else is to blame otherwise.

Actually, if you read the last sentence of the article, it says that he's apparently not suing (or at least he hasn't gotten around to it yet).

But seriously, this is the kind of thing that a judge will probably laugh at and dismiss.

This is just plain outrageous. When will people start taking responsibility for their own actions?

Take responsibility? In America? HAH! You must be joking...this is the land of "sue first, don't ask questions, it's not your fault".

Some people just shouldn't exist...

Amen to that.
