Ian O'Doherty: That's it, I'm suing ...
We live in a culture seemingly based around litigation. Trip on a step? Sue the council. Slip on something outside a house? Sue the home owner. Burn your mouth on hot coffee? Well, take a leaf out of what is known in America as 'Stella's law' and sue the joint where you bought it.
Personally, I've always found this type of behaviour cynical and nauseating -- until now.
Last Saturday, Mrs ISpy bought yours truly a set of knives that were on special offer. And it turned into a bloody disaster.
