Douche of the day:

A Colorado man, despite acknowledging that he’s lucky to be alive after being trapped in a submerged car, has filed an intent to sue his rescuers for half a million dollars.

Roy Ortiz filed his intent to sue the county of Boulder and his rescuers for a tentative $500,000 as a “preservative” measure, his attorney, Ed Ferszt, told

Ferszt said the county should have closed the road during floods in September. He said the first responders were also included because they did not realize Ortiz was trapped in the car until they prepared to lift it out of the water.

Can the rescuers file a motion to have him put back in the car and dropped back into the creek and call it even?

    Can the residents of Boulder sue this guy for being dumb enough to drive on roads that he and his lawyer determined should have been closed?

    Gratitude in the age of victimization.

    I suggest giving him an honorable mention Darwin Award as a consolation prize.
