    French women getting sued for car-pooling

    Here is an article that I found that reports on a bunch of French women who are getting sued by a bus company for the car-pool that they organized to get between their hometown and their jobs at the EU offices in Luxembourg. The bus company is claiming two million Euros in 'losses' for their transgression.

    I wonder what they would do if someone proposed HOV lanes on the motorways in that area....

    That's like Applebee's suing me for cooking my own meals at home.

    Stupid.

    "..Applebee's is requesting damages paid in loss of revenue not to exceed $30 including tip and confiscation of any and all cooking and food storage devices in his home"
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    Well, one magistrate has already thrown it out. Looks like the coach company doesn't have a case.
