LOL, Kelly! It IS a shame that so many people are such opportunists. I can’t help but think that the lady that sued McDonald’s really helped fuel this type of thinking. Then shortly after, the ones who found the finger in the Wendy’s chili. Just goes to show how desperate and sick people are.

We were talking the other day about “codes” for building. Everything here in Canada is coded. EVERYTHING. It is as if you can’t put up new window curtains without taking out a permit (an exaggeration – but not by much) We were saying that we wondered how the Acadians who settled this area 400 years ago survived. They built four walls and a fireplace for cooking and heat. It’s no wonder they didn’t all burn themselves to the ground and die off.

I am all for safety, but come on! Where the heck does ‘common sense’ come into play? Why should we have the burden for everyone’s stupidity? (Oh – I forgot – no one needs to be responsible for their own actions!) We grew up in a world where everyone is pointing the finger at everyone else for their problems so much it has become a way of life. The real victims get lost in the shuffle.

Sorry to rant, but it really makes me sick!
