    Bob, did your oven door have a sign on it warning you that it might be hot if you've had it switched on?
    I've seen bags of peanuts with a notice that the contents might contain nuts!! FFS that's really covering your arse and pointing out the obvious.

    A true story of modern madness. Not litigation but political correctness: A few years ago, when working in the NHS community health team, I pitched up at a community centre and the manageress had that morning found a human finger on the doorstep. (Yep!) The police were called and they retrieved the finger and started their investigation. The police called the local hospitals to see if anyone had been admitted with a finger missing. One hospital said yes, a man had been admitted the previous evening with a finger amputated. The police asked for his name with a view to interviewing him. The hospital refused because of patient confidentiality. The hospital asked for the finger. The police refused as it was evidence. I **** you not......

    I understand, just like clearing snow from ya path you become liable as it is not as nature intended and is in a condition you created so when postie breaks their wrists in a slip and fall you may as well as have pushed em.
    A warning sticker, albeit obscured means it's their fault.

    Yep, madness.
    I had a mate in America (Toledo - outside Michigan) who owned a shop. He cleared the pathway to the door of snow and then had a Copper come to the shop. He slipped over and sued my mate.
    My mate lost the business and his home due to shyster lawyers. He has so much additional restitution to pay he has money deducted from his salary for the rest of his life. That was 25+ years ago and he's still paying.

    in a similar situation you have oj simpson who we all know murdered his wife & boyfriend , got away with it due to sleazy lawyers, inept prosecutors & police mishandling of evidence , got sued by the inlaws in civil court & vowed when he walked out of court he would never pay them a penny & never has since due to him not having any taxable legal income to deduct money from , finally went to jail on a different matter , pleaded with with the parole board for yrs to be let out because he was,nt in good health & just wanted to live out his yrs with his kids & now lives comfortably in florida playing golf every day surprisingly his health has perked right up enabling to do all sorts of things & collecting his $35k a month pension from the NFL which is,nt taxable thankyou very much , people are fond of saying money don,t buy happiness but it can buy you out of a life sentence or the electric chair in the usa.

    The only good thing to come out of California in the past 10 years is the freeway heading east.
