Why I Hate People

I was reading a story today after I followed a link on a random site somewhere. It brought me to the page of a site called The Consumerist. The story was about some person who had a broken something and wanted it fixed by Best Buy. He was told one thing, something happened, he got upset, ultimately got his whatever it was fixed for free. (You can read the whole story here)

What did this yahoo do after he got his repairs for free? He sued Best Buy, claiming they broke the law on a number of counts. He did win some of the lawsuit but now is upset that he has been banned from Best Buy for life. DUH! What did he think would happen?

This is what is wrong with the world today. FREE isn’t even good enough for some douche bags. They have to go and ruin everything for everybody else with ridiculous lawsuits that do nothing but raise costs for everyone else. If you have a legitimate reason to sue someone, then fine. Don’t start lawsuits just to satisfy your self righteous feelings. I am not always happy with Best Buy either. Hell, there are a lot of places I am not happy with at time. But, they give me something free and it is all good. It is then my decision if I want to go back and shop there or not. I don’t need them to ban me.

And THAT’S what grinds my gears.

  1. Sybil Law Says:

    Bullshit litigation is why people hate lawyers, other people, and, ultimately, raise the prices for all sorts of shit in this country.
    In other words – I agree!

  2. I read this the other day as well. I think it’s crap both that he sued and that he’s upset for being banned. What did I do when I was mistreated by Best Buy’s Geek Squad? I just cut my buying at their stores by about 90% (some things you can avoid). Probably didn’t hurt their bottom line much, but it helped me.
