Stupidity reigns

Just looked on the side of a can of mixed nuts and found this warning:
Allergy Information: Prouced in a facility that processes
peanuts and tree nuts. May contain peanuts or tree
nuts.

You know, I can appreciate the warning when you might be buying a
product that you wouldn't think contained peanuts, like perhaps snack
crackers. That would make sense. But you know, if I were a judge and you
brought a case before me where you were allergic to nuts, knew that you
were allergic, bought a can of mixed nuts and ate them, then sued the
company that made the nuts because you had an allergic reaction, I would
make sure that you were ridiculed in every way as publicly as possible.

Likewise if you were electrocuted because you decided to use your blow
dryer while you were taking a shower.

There's a line in "Keeping the Faith" where Ben Stiller is complaining about this date he went on:
"I'm eating pecan pie and she asks for a bite. Eats it and then says, 'Oh my god, does that have nuts in it?!'"

Fictional, but represented of real life. People ARE that stupid.

What else do you do when the hot water runs out?

This kind of stupidity makes me want to bang my head on my desk. Repeatedly. Just to make the thought go away.

(I see it all the time in the Pharmacy... unfortunately. At the risk of sounding snooty, there are times I think it's time for a little chlorine in the Gene Pool.)
