No one is responsible for what befalls them anymore.

They should deduct for the 12 years worth of lunches, he'd probably owe them money! I'm going to have to sue Cin-A-Bon, because I can't make it past their spot in the mall, and I seem to be packin on the pounds! Then maybe I could sue the candy bar companies because i over buy for Halloween and eat all of the leftovers, that can't help my weight either? Give me a break!

A Brazilian court ruled this week that McDonald's must pay a former franchise manager $17,500 because he gained 65 pounds while working there for a dozen years.
McDonald's should hired an employee with discipline and common sense ... but got something else entirely. The firm should be compensated for the 12 years they suffered through his inadequacy. His five-fingered light lifting wasn't exactly according to company policy. He was paid; he got fed; he lost his discipline, common sense and self respect, effectively working himself out of a post. It's a wash. And still, he feels entitled to strip the company of assets for his "loss." He's and the judges in the Brazilian legal (not justice) system would qualify as "looters" in Rand's "Atlas Shrugged." Yet one more indicator around the world of the descent toward anarchy by the entitled wad.
I guess the reason I am high strung is the Saxby's near my house, makes sense. If the place wasn't on my way to work, and had great coffee, I might be a little more even keeled.
I think I'll sue them, for lifetime of free

There's no personal responsibility anymore - ALWAYS blame someone else for your failures and shortcomings, especially big-pocketed corporations!!
I LOVE Mexican food - hmm, maybe instead of suing the 5 Mexican food joints in town, I'll aim bigger and sue Mexico!

There is the responsibility, though. That doesn't go away. If only the judges, neighbors, parents and everyone else would hold people to it.
The real problem is: there's no sense of it, no understanding of its importance, no general agreement that those with it retain it no matter who is blamed for it, and the ultimate feeling (as evidenced by such crap even being allowed in a court room) that if one can weasel out of it then it legitimately can be pinned on someone else ... even if the "someone else" is your tax-paying family members and community. And who's responsible for that? Everyone who either seeks such "relief" from their own responsibility, or those responsible for allowing others to sidestep their own responsibility.
