Unbelievable!!

This year's runaway First Place Stella Award winner was
Mrs. Grazinski of Oklahoma City who purchased a new 32-foot Winnebago
motor home. On her first trip home, from an OU football game, having
driven on to the freeway, she set the cruise control at 70 mph and
calmly left the driver's seat to go to the back of the Winnebago to make
herself a sandwich. Not surprisingly, the motor home left the freeway,
crashed and overturned. Also not surprisingly, Mrs..Grazinski sued
Winnebago for not putting in the owner's manual that she couldn't
actually leave the driver's seat while the cruise control was set .The
Oklahoma jury awarded her $1,750,000 PLUS a new motor home. Winnebago
actually changed their manuals as a result of this suit, just in case
Mrs. Grazinski has any relatives who might also buy a motor home.

I'm with myth, it's still almost believable considering the stories that are equally ridiculous but true. Take a chill pill and relax .

You mean we aren't supposed to do that? There's even an Orvil Reddenbacher popcorn commercial on TV that shows them doing that!!! True dat.

This is an urban myth that has had a thousand different names, manufacturers, and and places associated with it over the last 15 years or so. If you're inclinde to believe it you're probably also interested in ocean front property in Kansas.

Let's keep this lite and fun since this is the Humor area. This story has been around for years and the coach has been represented as a number of different coach brands.

The Forum is not exclusive, but inclusive to all brands. You have to admit that it is pretty funny to think that someone might be dumb enough to try.

Just as funny as the siphon on the black tank to steal some fuel or dropping a match down the fuel fill neck to see the level. It is amazing to see just how shallow the gene pool can be (or perceived to be) at times.
