Good God!

A 5 year old  irish boy has been awarded 7500 Euros for hurt feelings.LIDL had accused him of shoplifting.

Gee he must have been reading freudian psychology since he was born.
What the heck would a 5yr old know about hurt feelings and  deprecation of the "self ego"
Can you imagine him telling the judge    "  since the incident, I have been experiencing  deep sublimal anger and  engasging in  counter transference behaviours towards my family. I have also suffered post traumatic stress disorder resulting in my wetting my bed at night and a reduced libido"

Re: Good God!

Many can't count or, punctuate a simple piece of English, but, I bet there are a few around who could easily fool some of our noble judiciary.
Something about link:censored baffles brains, springs to mind.

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Good God!

The BBC reported it as an Irish lad and 7500 Euros.

@Be3G, I knew you would, but I couldn't think of a way round what is otherwise a very well known phrase.

Re: Good God!

The link Denzil posted reports that the 7,500 includes costs, so legal bills might take a big chunk of that.
