Time for a little something funny – laugh with me as Cathy Cruz Marrero falls into a mall fountain while texting and walking at the same time. Don’t worry, she didn’t get hurt; in my book that makes it ok to laugh at her.
Marrero, however, doesn’t think it’s funny and she’s actually thinking of suing the mall. Yes! She’s suing the mall, when it was clearly her friggin’ fault that she fell. Seriously.
She says it’s because they did nothing to help her once she fell. I’m guessing it’s because they were too busy laughing their asses off.
“Instead of laughing, they should have said, ‘Is she OK?’ and been down there right away to check on me,” she told Reading Eagle in her first interview since the video went viral.
Marrero says security didn’t respond until 20 minutes later, at which point she had already left the mall.
From Reading Eagle:
Her attorney, James M. Polyak of Reading, said he plans to conduct an investigation into what happened.
“We are troubled by the fact that anyone at the Berkshire Mall responsible for releasing this video would find humor in an employee injured on the premises,” Polyak said. “We intend to hold the appropriate persons responsible.
“No one from that security office came to her aid in a timely manner.”
Oh yeah ? Well I’m troubled by a grown woman who doesn’t have the smarts to watch where she’s going while texting. It’s really not that hard. Just sayin’.
