Today's WTF news comes from Bridgeport, Connecticut, where a woman named Jen Connell unsuccessfully sued her nephew for "hugging her too hard" at his 8th birthday party 4 years ago.
Apparently the nephew jumped into auntie Jen's arms and caused her to fall backwards and break her wrist.
The nephew, Sean Tarla's, mother had passed away last year.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS WOMAN.
The jerk asked for 127,000 dollars in damages for some effing reason, and decided it would be worth everyone's time and effort to take the ridiculous matter to court.
She claimed that "it was hard to hold the hors d’oeuvre plate" at several parties she attended. And it was really difficult for her to get around Manhattan, where she was living.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME.
It doesn't take a brain surgeon to realize that this woman is insane. Like, where are your priorities lady? This kids just trying to have fun at his birthday party. He was excited to see you, so he jumped on you, as little kids do. You fell, got hurt. It's not a big deal. It's not like you suffered brain damage or anything, you broke your wrist.
Get over yourself.
It's no surprise that jurors didn't give a shit about this woman's inability to get around at parties. They ruled in favor of little Sean.
