"EWW!" and "Seriously?"

So a guy had French onion soup at Claim Jumper restaurant and chewed on a used condom.  Ew.  He's suing but he's also stating that his life has become a living hell.  He lives in fear of fatal disease (even though he's tested negative for Hepatitis and HIV).  His wife won't go near him.

Seriously?  He didn't even swallow!

Sometimes I think people borrow more trouble than they need.  I won't even get into the debate about whether it's a valid claim versus a plant.

And what is it with condoms in soup?  In 2004 there was a claim against McCormick & Schmick's.  I think soup is an easy vehicle for just about anything.  Come to think of it I found something in soup at Hometown Buffett.  It was an eaten chicken leg (in a vegetable soup!).  I think I even finished my (other) food and left.  Haven't been back but I didn't freak out and I didn't sue either.  Granted it's not a scary condom but I think sometimes we create more trouble in our lives than is really necessary. 

Here's the article that prompted my thoughts.

oh jeeesh. for pete's sake. I agree with your comments.

"I won't go near him," said a tearful Sherry Hodousek. "It's real for us. We're living in hell and they put us through this."

Get over yourself lady!

It'd be even worse for you to find a used condom in your soup. I mean... you're a vegetarian!

ewww.
... and cut.

OMG. Well, yucky indeed...

He's probably supposed to say that, to get higher damages & such.. ($$$$)

as a vegetarian you probably could sue for a chicken leg in your soup, lol..
