I'm pretty sure people on benefits or just those who save or whatever can fill a basket with groceries. Baskets aren't that big and the items could've been really cheap. Plus the shop worker may not even have been a cleaner, they could've been a cashier or even a manager grabbing the sign to help out. But that's besides the point - all jobs are legitimate jobs. We need cleaners and retail workers and waiters as much as teachers and doctors and stuff. They all help the world go round (figuratively) and many of them work really hard. Don't be such a douche.
#16 And I would like a Jet ski with Missiles and a flamethrower and Iron Man's Suit.Life doesn't just give you what you want.Respect everyone if there were no janitors it would be you who had to clean up after your own mess,Work is work.They are trying to provide for their family and helping out.Instead of waiting for life to hand them opportunities.Adapt or Perish.I learnt that the hard way.Disappointed by your attitude but can't complain.I used to be the same.All it takes is one life changing experience to get you back on track.
At 16 I worked the drive-thru at mcdonalds and to this day I respect the hell out of people who wash floors, serve fast food, work a cash register or have any other "undesirable" jobs. Those people work their asses off. I have what you refer to as a real job now #1 but working the drive thru and cleaning mcdonalds bathrooms was the most difficult/demanding job I've ever had.
Hey idiot. Every kid wants to be a doctor, or an accountant. But doctors offices don just hire all the time. Do you realize there are hundreds of thousands of people working blue collar jobs with white collar degrees? Pharmacy is my favorite example. My buddy got his degree in pharmaceuticals and mí noted in some medicine oriented program. He works as a receptionist right now. He has interviews lined up, but right now, there's a surplus of pharmacists.
Did you ever think for a moment that the people with jobs like that are: A. Still in college? B. Unable to land a job anywhere else despite having good credentials? Oh wait that would never cross the mind of someone who thinks that people who clean are lower lifeforms.
I agree that there no reason to sue, but I think he just meant there may be a lawsuit in the future if this happens on a regular basis and a sign isn't put out before the person starts cleaning, like it should be. If the person always waits till after the floor has been mopped to put out the sign then somebody may get seriously hurt and then sue.
I wouldn't listen to number 2. I hope you didn't hurt yourself and I'd probably give that cleaner a cussing. However, I wouldn't sue it seems to be everyone's goto nowadays.
Yeah agreed.But some people misuse the whole process and do it just to earn a couple of extra bucks.If I does hurt you then its understandable.But if it is nothing like in this case why sue?Negligence shouldn't be taken lightly but a honest mistake that doesn't cause harm shouldn't always be punishable.
Yeah if you got hurt then it's understandable. But if you get up and everything's fine you should say something and get the problem fixed. But suing that's the wrong way to handle things unless the situation permits it. Why is it in today's society most peoples first instinct is to sue?
If Your not Hurt just pick yourself up write a suggestion about maybe having the cleaner bringing the wet floor sign before they mop it and continue on with your day
