Another example of trying to pass the blame.

Whatever happened to taking responsibility for your own actions? Are the people of today such crybabies that they just can't admit when they've screwed up?

I'm talking about Arelia Margarita Taveras. What is her deal? She lost all of her money, almost a MILLION dollars gambling. So now, she's decided to sue for $20 million. Yeah, she's suing six Atlantic City casinos and one in Las Vegas. Why? Because it was THEIR responsibility to see she had a problem, and they did nothing to stop her gambling.

This is what she says. "They knew I was going for days without eating or sleeping. I would pass out at the tables. They had a duty of care to me. Nobody in their right mind would gamble for four or five straight days without sleeping." She says she would go days at a time at the tables, not eating or sleeping, brushing her teeth with disposable wipes so she didn't have to leave.

Well if you ask me, nobody in their right mind would award this woman anything for being a dumbass! And if the casino had told her to leave, I'm sure she would have sued them for something completely different!

Did I mention she's a laywer? Figures.

ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. SHE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HERSELF. THEY SHOULD COUNTERSUE FOR SLANDER AND BAN HER FROM EVER CMING INTO ANOTHER OF THEIR CASINOS.
