A Texas lawyer was so disappointed when a local restaurant ran out of soup that he threatened to sue.
(We’ll give you a moment to make your own Seinfeld “Soup Nazi” joke.)
Dwain Downing alleges that Our Place Restaurant’s menu represents a contract with the customer that is enforceable by law. And since he accepted that contract, the restaurant must serve him soup — even if it ran out.
Seriously, that must be some pretty darn good soup.
He’s seeking $2.25 — the cost of the soup — and $250 in legal fees in a ridiculous lawsuit that’s clearly out to lunch.
