Paul O’Brien is being sued by a woman who says she trapped her hand in his letterbox while posting mail.
Joy Goodman, a cake decorator in her late 40s, is seeking damages for personal injury and loss of earnings.
She claims the top of her right index finger was severed by his letterbox and she can no longer do her intricate job.
By “intricate job” I sincerely hope she means the cake decorating and not the mailbox stuffing. But I tell you, I sliced the tip of my right thumb off while making guacamole a couple of years ago and the only thing I could see that interfering with is…well, nothing. Damned fine guacamole though.
And what of poor Mister O’Brien, finding a bloody, skeevy fingertip amongst his grocery store fliers? Quel horreur! Countersue, O’Brien, countersue!
