This Lawsuit Stinks…

Just read another example of what I consider an abuse of a perfectly good law:

Susan McBride’s lawsuit, filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Detroit, says the work environment is in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. She wants a ban on such scents at work — and unspecified damages. – [Yahoo/AP]

I have one question. Since when did having an overly sensitive nose become a disability? Is an allergy to dust and pollen a disability? Should allergic folk now be able to sue companies to ensure that nearby plants do not produce pollen during allergy season? Ok, so that was three questions, with (maybe) an unfair example.

But I still don’t see how anyone should be able to sue a company because someone elses’ perfume makes them sick. That, to me, is like setting the office thermostat at 90degrees and making everyone else sweat it out just because your arthritic knee flares up when temp gets below 85. It’s inconsiderate and selfish. It’s your problem. Don’t make it everyone else’s. And using the law to do so only makes it more heinous in my book.
