The Famous McDonald's Coffee Case

For the first time in my life, I understand why the lady in the McDonald's coffee case actually sued McDondald's. When the barista at Starbucks handed me my overfilled venti coffee this morning the lid was not secured all the way. As soon as I grabbed it from her, the lid popped off and a good amount of the coffee spilled on to my right hand and also all over my lap. It hurt horribly. And even though the coffee only touched the skin on my hand for just a few seconds it was hot enough that it blistered my skin...Not a fun way to start off the day.
