Couple of things... first, that`s the best literal version of "I wish the ground would just open up and swallow me" that I`ve heard yet.

Secondly, it was on her friends phone... perhaps her "friend" was hoping to get her to wipe herself out of existance due to being such a dumbass, how else do you explain the lack of a friend going "hey, watch out, big damned hole ahead!"

WTF is wrong with people? if that stupid b*tch had been looking where she was going she PROBABLY would`ve seen a f*ckin giant hole in the sidewalk. How that was anyone`s fault but her own I can`t fathom.

Admittedly, dudes should have closed the manhole, then went and got the cones. Good. Night.

... And she should have watched where she was going. Still, she has a cool story to tell people later. :)

So we`re supposed to believe that orange cones would have kept her from falling into the hole?? If she didn`t see the great big hole in the sidewalk -- how the hell would she have noticed the cones??

I love it. The mother blaming the DEP. If she missed seeing the hole, I`m thinking she would have missed the cones too.
Unfortunately we have to protect ourselves from the ignorant and unaware, because when they hurt themselves there`s always an opportunist nearby to tell them, "you should sue"

She actually said "There was no warning...". Are you F-ing kidding me? Here EYES might have done a good job of warning her had she been paying attention. It`s almost as if she is blaming someone or something else for the whole thing.

Doesn`t surprise me at all... Just yesterday, I turned a corner in my car and there was a kid walking 6 inches in my lane because he was texting people and couldn`t be bothered to watch where he was going. He`ll be fine until he encounters the next texting driver...

Something like... MONEY? Is that what you`re trying NOT to say because you don`t want to look like a greedy bitch but you`re trying to get THEM to say? Even though it was her own stupid fault because even a dog would have sense to look where it`s going, would some money make you/her feel better perhaps?

A full investigation?

You left the goddamned hole OPEN and then LEFT it! That`s it! No special investigation needed! All horsecrap!

Also, I`ve seen kids on their bikes and on their skateboards on the f***ing phone too, STOP IMITATING YOUR DUMBASS PARENTS! FOCUS ON WHAT YOU`RE DOING! DUH!

Okay, this is kind of dumb on both sides. Opening a manhole and leaving it unattended is irresponsible and stupid! Why not leave it covered...go get the cones, then open it up? They should know better because they could sue and they should have put up proper safety restrictions.

That being said, watch where the hell you`re going. The manhole shouldn`t be open but you know, sometimes there are obstacles that aren`t the fault of others? you should watch for that s hit too...dumb. dumb dumb.

That`s what she gets for texting and walking. I walked into a stop sign once while texting, at least I don`t text and drive! :x

NO ONE should be responsible for their own actions. That`s just stupid. It`s a good thing we stopped being independent individuals and started relying on the government, because otherwise we wouldn`t have great healthcare and we wouldn`t sue for logical reasons and get great money.

It is her fault in this situation, but leaving an open manhole unattended is absolutely idiotic for the company to do. If someone is riding their bike they might not see it, THEN it is the companies fault. But in this case, she was walking, and looking at her phone. She would have missed it had there been warnings.

....did the video say that she was reading a text on her friend`s phone? So....She wasn`t even reading a text of her own when she fell into this hole.
This reminds me of that woman that sued because her coffee cup didn`t say "CAUTION, COFFEE IS HOT" and spilled it on herself...

Eh, if you ask me if a text is that important that you have to read it then and there, you stop walking. You should watch where you`re going, not have your attention else where.

There are kids here who walk into the middle of the road, busy traffic, checking their bloody phones paying no attention to the cars. Beep your horn, they look at you as though YOU shouldn`t be there.

She has nobody to blame but herself. Could have been avoided if she had stopped to check the text, or just left it for a couple minutes.

okay so if they had put cones up, she would have just tripped over the cone and fell in head first.

I don`t get why we need to call her stupid.
Why can`t I walk on the side walk, and read a damn text if I want to without someone saying I`m stupid?

They should have covered up the hole.
If the girl had been walking and someone waves to her, and she waves back and kept walking and then fell everyone would be `people should do their job put cones up`

she really didn`t do a thing wrong.

It`s a good thing she`s not in China. There`s open manholes, wet cement, and electrical wires everywhere. Not to mention traffic that doesn`t care if there`s a pedestrian in a crosswalk . . . I think she should go on vacation to someplace like this.

Wait a minute... Are we supposed to feel SORRY for this stupid girl?

Serves her right for not paying attention to where she was going. Even if there HAD been cones present, she was so wrapped up in texting that she wouldn`t have seen it anyway.

The fact that she fell into raw sewage is the PERFECT insult added to her injury. Maybe she`ll actually learn to watch where she walks.

BTW, you could drive a truck through the gap in her mother`s teeth.

So texting causes you to fall down manholes, and mailing letters makes you a target for crashing helicopters...(http://www.nationalpost.c...

I think I`m just going to stay here and post on iab. It seems safer.
