Our Own Hot Coffee Lawsuit

Looks innocent enough  

Looks innocent enough

It looks like the little town of Knoxville has finally arrived.  We’ve got a hot coffee lawsuit on our hands.  That’s not a hot lawsuit about coffee, it’s a lawsuit over hot coffee.

The lawsuit alleges that the 23-year-old Triplett drove to a Starbucks on Kingston Pike on July 13 and bought coffee via the store’s drive-through window. The lawsuit is silent on what Triplett ordered.

Seems like mos of the commenters over at KNS are in agreement–too bad, so sad.  I have to agree.  “The lid wasn’t put on properly” doesn’t seem like a $250k mistake to me.  Doesn’t this happen all the time?  It seems like every time I try to put a lid on one of those cups I can’t get it, and I’m an engineer.  (Insert joke about my inability to build a Jenga tower here.) I don’t expect a high school kid who hasn’t even taken trigonometry yet to be able to affix these lids perfectly every time.

I could probably find five or six better reasons to sue someone every day, and I go 3-4 day stretches where I don’t even walk out of my house.  Who is her attorney–Jackie Chiles?

  1. It took me quite a while to figure out how to leave a comment and I’ve got a Ph.D. and onset Alzheimers.

    Anybody that causes any problems for a Starbucks should be dragged from the back of his pickup truck. It’s my very most favorite elitist coffee house.

    JACKIE: You put the balm on? Who told you to put the balm on? I didn’t tell you to put the balm on. Why’d you put the balm on? You haven’t even been to see the doctor. If your gonna put a balm on, let a doctor put a balm on.

    KRAMER: I guess I screwed up huh Jackie?

    JACKIE: Your damn right you screwed up. Where the hell did you get that damm balm anyway?

  3. But judge, no one was more surprised (and obviously less prepared) than I, when I actually got scalding hot coffee served to me from a real-life-coffee-house-drive-through!

    Maybe there’s a typo and she was actually 2.3 years old…..evil child abusing Baristas!
