WHAT? Woman Suing Chik-Fil-A Because Her Coffee Was Too Hot!
Anyone that has eaten at a Chik-Fil-A at least once in their lives will tell you that it is some of the best fast food that they have ever had in their life.
The company tries to focus on one thing and doing it well instead of finding a hundred things and doing them just slightly above OK.
It’s almost funny because before ten years ago I never lived in an area of the country where we could find one. Now going to Chik-Fil-A is the absolute highlight of my week. Has been for me and m son for years now. He still to this day thinks the waffle fries are the most amazing thing in the known world.
They do good things too as a company, so many charitable acts that you can’t really list them all. A more recent one was when several hundred folks were stranded at an airport that was closed down for a couple of days and the owners of that location decided to open on a very rare Sunday to make food for all those folks that were stranded.
Which is why it makes me giggle when you hear people bringing lawsuits to this company because by this point in history there are some things that a person should just know…
A Georgia woman is suing a local Chick-fil-A store after she spilled coffee on her lap.
According to WPXI-TV, Leigh Mehalick alleges that one of the store’s employees handed her a steaming cup of coffee with a defective lid during an August exchange.
Mehalick filed the negligence suit on Tuesday in Fulton County Court.
The station reported that Mehalick purchased two hot coffees at the drive-thru. One of the cups reportedly spilled in Mehalick’s lap due to either a defective lid or lid that was not affixed to the cup properly.
Margaret Phillips, the Chick-fil-A franchise owner, addressed the suit. She told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, “We are aware of the complaint from August, and conducted a full investigation at the time. The safety of our guests is of the utmost priority at Chick-fil-A Commerce.”
The Journal-Constitution reported that Mehalick suffered “severe and permanent burns” as a result of the spilled coffee. She is seeking $21,000 in medical expenses, as well an unspecified amount for other medical expenses and legal costs.
Mehalick’s attorney declined to comment on the case, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
