Always someone else’s fault

Today I heard a radio advert prompting me to contact a company if “I’d ever been ill on holiday”. They’d get me “the compensation you deserve” they claim. Stuff like this makes me despair. We’ve all gone on holiday and eaten stuff we shouldn’t. We’ve all gone on holiday and drank enough to sink the Bismarck but hey, it’s not our fault. Really?
What is society coming to when it’s always someone else’s fault? What happened to common sense? Ultimately if the holiday firms get hammered by these charlatans then prices rise so we all suffer. I wonder if people actually call these companies, and if so how on earth they prove that a holidaymaker getting ill on holiday isn’t the fault of the holidaymaker?
Some lawyers will be making a nice wedge from this nonsense; I guess they don’t have trouble sleeping….
