Then you have no sense of self-worth. Sorry to hear that.

Now I'm sure you have little self-worth...

This has nothing to do with what year it is.

Yeah, it does. For the first time in history, there are now two lawyers for every human on the planet. Lawyers subsist almost entirely on a diet of lawsuits.

Funny, I thought they ate food like the rest of us...

Actually, when you think about it, it's impossible for that statement to be true! If you have 6 billion people on the Earth and they state you have 2 lawyers for every human, you'd need 12 billion lawyers, which would increase the population of the Earth to 18 billion, necessitating 36 billion additional lawyers, and so on.... ;-)

Lawsuits themselves have now evolved to the point where they can sometimes even grow in places which defy common sense.

Like is often said - you're right! You can indeed sue for anything. But that doesn't mean that you'll win.

It's simple common sense.

In a world where McDonalds loses a bajillion-dollar lawsuit because its coffee is hot, common sense is a thing of the past my naive friend.

So then we should stop striving for common sense? I've always believed that the world is largely what you make of it. I do not make it into the paranoid, PC vision that you propose. I'm sorry if that seems to bother you.

Granted some employers don't have that but some do. I choose to work for the latter.

Pray you know your employer as well as you believe you do.

It has nothing to do with it. I do not derive my worth from my employer rather I derive my worth from myself. You should try it someday - you might like it. If my employer is that paranoid, PC, stupid, lacking of common sense then I'll just go work for one that isn't. It's that simple! Done it before, many times. Will do it again I suspect. When I find an employer that's sensible I stay for a while.

Oh, right, you're an atheist.

Yes I am. -- Sometimes too much drink is not enough.
