Back in July, I read an article on the MSNBC blog that shows how common sense is no longer even considered.
This here 15-year-old girl was walkin long a street in Staten Island busy texting a message to somebody when, blam, she fell right in a manhole.
Now, I agree the workers should’ve had them barriers up. but what I’m wondering is ifn them barriers had been up, wouldn’t she just have fell over them into the manhole anyway, and maybe, just maybe on her head. Hell, them barriers not being up might just have saved her from a serious injury.
That aint the end of the story. Her parents plan to sue the city. You see, it was putrid in that there manhole and, oh lord, the girl left one of her sneakers in that there stinkin manhole.
Well, now, the philosopher of common sense says that there girl shoulda watched where she was steppin. Let’s put responsibility and blame where they belong, squarely on her shoulders.
Anybody with any common sense knows walkin and textin can be very dangerous.
