From Secular Blasphemy and Clayton Cramer comes this tale of utter petty madness. And I'm not making this up!
a group of French cleaning ladies who organised a car-sharing scheme to get to work are being taken to court by a coach company which accuses them of "an act of unfair and parasitical competition".
Really- they are suing these women for not taking the bus to work. Now, as completely ridiculous as that sounds it gets even worse.
The women, who live in Moselle and work five days a week at EU offices in Luxembourg, are being taken to court by Transports Schiocchet Excursions, which runs a service along the route. It wants the women to be fined and their cars confiscated.
No, it's not enough that the company wants to force these women to take the bus they also want to confiscate their car and fine them? What planet are these people on? And how the hell did this case even get close to a court house?
