So a guy orders two quarter-pounders from a McDonald's in Star City, Va and tells them to hold the cheese because he is allergic to cheese. They don't hold the cheese, he takes a bite and goes into anaphylactic shock, survives and sues for 10 million dollars.
I'm of two minds on this sort of thing. In one mind I think the guy should have opened the burger and checked to make sure that there was no cheese before he bit the thing. He's an adult (early 20's) and should know better. But my other mind, the one that has a close relative with serious allergy to peanuts that could express itself in exactly the same way says, teach McDonald's a lesson. No cheese, should mean no cheese.

Star City, SC has been changed to Star City, Va thanks to a gentle chiding from a proud citizen of SC named surprisingly, CarolinaGirl. Who'da thunk she's from SC?
