I know this is an uncharitable thing to say, but sometimes it is hard to believe just how stupid people can be.
It’s why we have so many warning labels on our products. I guess to be more accurate, the warning labels are the result of our litigious society, where stupid people can sue others just because they are stupid.
At my day job, we have these 5 gallon plastic containers with sealable lids we use from time to time. On the container reads a warning – “do not place small children inside.”
Now why would they feel a need to go to the added expense of this? You got it. Because some moron placed their small child in one and something tragic most likely occurred. They subsequently sued the manufacturer, probably won a settlement, further burdening the company.
