What! Thats discusting!

We have a poster on our Wall at School telling us what Disabled people Do and Don't:

Disabled people don't have rights (What! I suppose they mean don't have special rights - although they do have special rights too!)
Now; I'm not one to say don't give Disabled people special rights - but its when they rub it in our faces and even sue us for useless things that they really get on my nerves! My Mum and my Nan are Disabled - so i'm not an extremist; but as long as what we give them to help is enough I don't think they can complain at all and least of all Sue a Website which does not cater to blinding people! Its disgraceful!

Pretty bloody stupid if you ask me - its Lawyers who I hate above all other members of all other proffessions (I do not class Chopping as a Proffession and I hate them more than Lawyers!)

Its just not nice - to sue somebody for anything whether or whether not the person is lying!

Yeah.
Did you hear about that guy who used cruisecontrol on a caravan and went to sleep. When it crashed, he sued them and got 1.5 Million!
