    Precisely.

    I just stand still when I see someone texting and let them walk right into me. Guess I might get sued now too.

    Funny how people who were walking around here didn't notice... Besides the Janitor, were the other people text messaging as well?

    This is just hilarious, even worse she sued the mall. They should sue her back.

    I heard on the news this evening that her and her lawyer have decided not to sue for physical injury, but to sue because mall security humiliated her by releasing the video to the public. Even with that, she is unlikely to win. I mean that could be my mother and I wouldn't recognize her from that video.

    Seriously - she brought the attention on herself. And now it's come out she has a criminal record...no one to blame for any supposed humiliation but herself

    People get stupider and stupider. I read a story not too long ago where some girl fell in a ditch or manhole while texting. Rather than call 911, she texted her friend to call for help. Sheesh.

    People overestimate their ability to multitask. Think of all the times you're walking somewhere while making cell phone calls and realize you have no idea how you got to where you're going. I'm always amazed at how jaywalkers assume that cyclists and motorists will always yield to them and how oblivious they are to almost being run over, and surprised that more pianos don't fall on people's heads.

    It was funny, and exactly what she deserved for not paying attention.
    She could have dived down an escalator, instead.
    What I thought was odd was that she sued the mall for not coming to her rescue. I would have thought that she would have sued them for making the fountain walls low enough for a person to fall in.

    I will never understand texting...

    Note to self: When texting, please come to a full stop, park to the side to avoid doing embarrassing things. icon_lol.gif

    Well they didn't offer her a towel from Sears to dry off. Why else would she be suing them. It's not like she is stupid or anything.....

    I'm surprised no one has come into this thread saying, "you guys are so mean laughing at her." What happened to the trolls?

    She sued the mall, because she wasn't paying attention to where she was walking, and ended up falling into a fountain, due to her attention being focused on texting...?

    Freaking idiot. Some people will try anything to squeeze a dime from another person.
