Too Much Caffeine?

6:00 PM -- The New York Daily News (which I really hate to cite, but it is my local rag) reports that
    a Staten Island woman who was badly burned after spilling scalding hot coffee on her lap is suing Dunkin' Donuts for a cool $15 million...

    "I thought I was dying - that's how bad it was," said Shea...

    The lawsuit is reminiscent of a 1992 case in which a New Mexico woman was awarded $2.9 million after spilling scalding hot coffee from McDonald's.
Well, DUH.

Sure glad you didn't die. Gosh, what a loss would have been to the world.
