What a wonderful time to be a lawyer. The lawsuit looting spree has even spread to the Great White North:
Trisha Fulawka is suing Petland, alleging she is suffering from post-traumatic stress, nightmares, lingering injuries and continued pain after she was repeatedly bitten by a rat last year at the company’s store on Regent Avenue West in Winnipeg. …
Petland district manager Lori Anderson said the domestic rat that bit Fulawka was a baby, adding it was being kept at the rear of the store for more socializing because it was skittish and would bite when handled.
Anderson said Fulawka picked up the animal against the advice of the store’s staff, adding she was insistent she wanted to handle it.
“This lady was very insistent, that she had 14 pet rats and she was very, very experienced and she didn’t believe that she would be having a problem with them.”
Fulawka has cut back on her working hours, allegedly having been partially disabled by the baby rat. She probably won’t need to work at all if her demands for “unspecified aggravated and special damages” are met.
Under liberalism, the fastest way to get ahead is to become a helpless victim. Already this has caused people to degenerate to the point of being debilitated by even the most minor injuries.
Imagine how pathetic we will become in a few generations if the reign of moonbattery continues. Baby rats won’t even have to bite; a cross look will be enough to permanently traumatize.
