Ok, tell me if this ever happened to any of you.A couple walk into your office. Apparently, the husband left his camera phone at McDonalds.Not a big deal, you say?True, but this little bugger had a few naughty pictures saved on his device.And now those photos are all over the intertubes, and his wife is more than slightly embarrassed.
Of course, there is only one solution — sue McDonalds:
Phillip Sherman of Arkansas learned that lesson after he left his phone behind at a McDonald’s restaurant and the photos ended up online. Now he and his wife, Tina, are suing the McDonald’s Corp., the franchise owner and the store manager.
The suit was filed Friday and seeks a jury trial and $3 million in damages for suffering, embarrassment and the cost of having to move to a new home.
The suit says that Phillip Sherman left the phone the Fayetteville store in July and that employees promised to secure it until he returned.
That cause of action seems a bit shaky, but by filing it you’ve managed to make your clients famous and publicize the photos even more!I’ve previously complained about missing all the good cases, and it’s true this happened in Arkansas, but it’s really the kind of thing that belongs right here in South Florida.
Step it up, folks!
