Health and Safety

We're big here in the UK on H&S - people like nothing better then to chase an ambulance at every opportunity.

You'll all be pleased to know that I most assuredly do NOT subscribe to the crazy politically correct cult.

Yes, that IS an electric lawnmower left out in the rain.

Oops.

This reminds me of the guy in my neighborhood last week. He was cutting his lawn, and it was starting to rain. Never did check to see if he got zapped or not.

LOL!

Leaving an electric mower in the rain is one thing, you can take it inside and leave it to dry and it should be fine.

USING an electric mower in the rain is a whole new level of Darwinism :oD !!

Check out The Darwin Awards for some real classics ;o)

Happy to enlighten...

'Ambulance Chasers' are typically 'no win no fee' type lawyers who think they can profit from some mishap. In the UK (and elsewhere I'm sure) there's also plenty of people who get excited at the prospect of maybe being able to sue someone/something and profit from it too and will then go and bother a lawyer (usually no win no fee type cos god forbid they may have to pay for something) and see if there's a chance they can make some cash.

Typical examples are:

Tripped over a badly seated paving slab - sue the town council instead of watch where you're going

Slip on a wet patch in a supermarket - sue the company

Dog died while trying to dry it in the microwave - sue the manufacturer for not having 'dont put pets in here' sticker

You get the idea :o)

NWNF lawyers are the scourge of the earth as they encourage mindless spurious claims for stuff as there's no financial risk for the claimant involved. They're probably also the root cause of the rise of crazy political correctness as people try to sue other people for saying 'shortie' instead of 'vertically challenged' in reference to ... well.. shorties (non-tall people). I heard recently of a woman who had been hit by a car (or her car had, i.e. she was the 'victim' in the scenario) of being told off by a police officer for pointing out the woman who had hit her as 'the fat one over there'. She got 'warned' about the use of the word 'fat' which, as the woman presumably was fat, is crazy - it's a statement of fact after all. Can't see how 'overweight' or 'obese' could have been any 'kinder'...

Anyway now you have waaaaaay too much information about Ambulance Chasers... LOL!!

The people a couple houses down from me are different. About once every week
they cut their yard, IN THE DARK! One walks around with the lawnmower and the other walks around with a flashlight! You can't tell me thats not weird and dangerous!?
