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?

I am mortified and stupified at this news!

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.

[Setting: Back seat of a cab. Jackie and Kramer]

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?

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!

If the lid don’t fit, you must acquit!
