...one in the eye for the people making money out of sex workers.
A South Florida man is $650,000 richer after successfully suing a strip club, having been injured when a lap dancer poked him in the eye with a stiletto (heel). Michael Ireland was left with a punctured eye socket, broken facial bones and permanent double vision after the 2008 incident at the Cheetah club in West Palm Beach. …
Why would you think I automatically know about shoes, Jake?
You can get platform stilettos. The platform bit is at the front. The stiletto bit is at the back. I know this not because I'm a girl and obsessed with shoes but because I have sufficient awareness of the world, and of shoes, to figure this out. And also Google told me.
I was going to post a link here but I didn't want y'all to get too het up.
If Levis 501s, a work shirt & steel toed boots turn you on, I hope your .sig other is either a blue-collar worker, a lesbian, or a skin-head ... Regardless, I sincerely hope you let 'em know how marvelous they look on a regular basis. It's kinda important in any relationship ...
Seriously, I never knew about the hybrid shoes. Platforms, to me, are what KISS wears, or Disco Boots, or possibly Bob Dylan's high-healed sneakers (dating myself, I know). Stilettos are what we call CFMs around these here parts ... Hybridizing them, to me, is fairly pointless. And possibly dangerous for day to day life.
The wife, reading over my shoulder, says "think porn" ... ::hits metacrawler:: ... Oh. So I'm clueless ... 2-D, vision only images (+/- sound) never did anything for me. :-)
Apologies for starting this thread.
If someone slapped a barmaid on the arse when she was collecting glasses so she smashed a bottle over my head, leading to permanent injury of a type which would make it difficult to work then I would expect to be paid compensation. The fact she was a stripper should have no bearing on anything.
@jake Some stilettos come with a platform on the front part of the sole also, so that the heel can be even longer -- no idea how I know that.
much the same way that if I was assulted by a member of staff at Tesco, then I would sue Tesco, not the staff member in question...
I guess the bar has a 'no touching' policy, in which case, miss ass shaker now needs to sue the bloke directly for the assult on her, to which she only acted in self defence...
I understand maybe why she did that (although it's not a reflex unless she's already holding the shoe of course), but just because it's a "reflex" doesn't mean you don't get held accountable for it.
At any rate, I wasn't commenting on her actions, but on the earlier comment that it was "only" self defence. Reflex, maybe. Self defence, no.
> much the same way that if I was assulted by a member of staff at Tesco, then I would sue Tesco, not the staff member in question..
Well, I totally disagree with you. Again, I don't see why it's Tesco's fault if one of their employees goes a bit loopy. If it's Tesco's policy to teach their staff to assault customers then yes it's Tesco's fault.
What if it was a little corner shop and not Tesco where someone gets assaulted? I guess the poor owner of that shop would lose the business he's been building up all his life.
Because his lawyers reckon the club's more likely to have 650 grand than the dancer?
She could have a problem here. Strip club owners aren't exactly renowned for their sensitivity, respect for the law and ability to accept misfortune gracefully. She may find someone from the less reputable end of the debt-collection business reclaiming 650 large ones out of her hide in a dark alley sometime soon.
who are too afraid to simply pay outright for real sex. They cost a fortune for booze and dances and deliver little real satisfaction.
If you want to drink, go to a pub. If you want sex, pay a hooker 60 quid for half an hour's attention (extras cost for some, but the better ones will go all-in for that amount)
Paris cos, well....
Strip clubs are for end of contract pishups, first somewhere pc for everyone then the boys onward to the lapdancing outfit when pished, where you can all be naughty within limits, but not wake up with some or something unfortunate/blackmail photos etc.
Been there got the tee, and my mrs asked them to take me there to "get me ready and prepped to fly home, but in a controlled way"!
> If someone slapped a barmaid on the arse when she was collecting glasses ...
in the UK they'd be found guilty of the offence of "unwanted contact" and get themselves on the sex offenders register - there was an article by a solicitor (that would be lawyer to an American readers) complaining that a client of his was now a "sex offender" as he'd patted a girls bottom as he walked past in a student bar saying "nice arse" and as a result had ended up in court and on the sex offenders register for 5 years.
Meanwhile in the UK you only get £24k for being kneed in the head by the local mayor!
But in reply to AC above and others who may not have read my post properly.
I said "If someone" not "if I" -- this woman kicked a man in the face because an unknown person slapped her behind -- in fact, the story even suggests that her victim was not the perpetrator.
I do have some sympathy for the woman -- but that doesn't change the fact she seriously assaulted someone who had done nothing to her (if the story is to be believed).
You know, where Officer Opee looked at the Judge and his seeing eye dog and then at the pictures with the circles and arrows.
"You can't anthing you want at the West Palm Beach Cheetah Club, except Sakeena"
Sincerest Apologies to Alices' Restaraunt and Arlo Guthrie, God rest his soul.
ok so person you dont know next to you slaps stripper's butt, and you think she should kick you? The fine article said SOMEONE slapped her, at no point did it it was this guy. I cannot image any situation where i would be walking around in a crowd naked, get my butt slapped and have any idea who it was... think about it for a minute.
Then again, I do make it a point to avoid walking around naked in crowds...
I want to know why she wasn't arrested and thrown in prison. If I kicked someone in the head half blinding them in the process I'm sure I'd be doing several years in the slammer.
This will have taught her only one thing, it's ok to kick someone in the head and cause major injuries, so long as you're a woman you will get away with it.
You're talking utter rubbish. How do you know she wasn't arrested?
It is highly likely the police and the DA were involved, and decided either there was no case to answer, or there wasn't enough evidence. Since I'm at work I can't go trawling the web looking for articles on "south florida strippers" to find the relevant news articles from the time.
You clearly have a anti-feminism complex given your comments and the fact you remain anonymous. And that's coming from another man!
As an aside, I wonder how much the guys wife will get in the divorce settlement after finding out he was visiting strip clubs :)
Assuming you are UK based that is bang on correct, we have some fairly whacky self defense laws and practioners of Martial Art such as us (rather than failing at Marital arts like Mr One in the Eye) have even fewer excuse allowed.
US Self Defence laws are I understand a tad different. A friend on the East Coast has stabbed someone with her comb because "she felt threatened" but this was considered fine and dandy as "self defence" because (as I understand it) if she HADN'T stabbed the guy (non fatally I must point out) and he HAD been an attacker rather than some dumb ass who walked to close behind her, then she'd have been hurt.
From one extreme to the other....
I'm also with the "further litigation wtf???" brigade. What else is there to litigate for/against????
