I'm having trouble believing this... How can they have identical-looking glasses that weigh that much less? I think it's more likely that you had a brain fart :) Pics or it didn't happen! (of the old and new glasses, side by side) Edit: Actually, put them on a scale, so that we can see the weight difference! Alright, I'll be right here twirling my thumbs until OP delivers =D
...Also at the more recent comment: It wasn't just "scalding". It was "hot enough to give third degree burns." And you know, funny how you are actually trying to *avoid* applying personal responsibility to a corporation. Let me guess, you're the kinda person who thinks that stores should be allowed to serve moldy food and that customers should have shown personal responsibility if they get sick from it.
#67, the hottest possible temperature at which a water-based liquid can be served is 100°C/212°F, which, for me fits the description of scalding. Yes, water at that temperature can cause third degree burns if the skin is exposed for long enough. By the way, when I, as a costumer, make sure that I don't expose sensitive body parts to a hot beverage I just bought by not putting it in my lap while driving, that's not the same as giving the company a free pass at doing whatever they want, it's similar to defensive driving: avoid unnecessary accidents by acting carefully and expecting others to make mistakes. Had that woman used the common sense to set the cup in a cup holder or wedge it between, say, the passenger seat and her handbag, and then sip very carefully until she determined the temperatre, the worst that would have happened would have been a customer complaint. For your other analogy, I don't think restaurants should be allowed to serve moldy or rotten food, but I do think that customers should use their senses and send the food back if it smells or tastes funny or seems not fully cooked instead of just wolfing it down anyways and sue when they get sick.
At least it wasn't hot tea!
I could see myself doing that, it's not like you were warned the mugs were suddenly lighter. You probably weren't the only one OP!
