But if you serve billions and billions of people, a few idiots are gonna slip in there now and again. And they can be jumped on by parasitic lawyers who can hire soulless jury consultants who can put addled dumkopfs onto juries.

Did you once get sued for doing something irresponsible? You sound like it.


Thanks to them, McD now serves tepid coffee to the rest of us.

Just like all their competitors who were smart enough not to expose themselves to lawsuits. It's not "tepid," it's a reasonable temperature.

The reason McD made their coffee at 190° was so it could be left sitting on a counter for ten minutes when the servers were rushed, and then it would still be "hot enough."
