Of Course: Texting Woman/YouTube Sensation Who Fell Into Mall Fountain Gets a Lawyer

Have you seen the video of the woman who was walking through a mall while texting and fell into a fountain (vid below). I saw it the other day and the first thing I thought of was “when’s she going to get a lawyer?”

The answer is “right now”:

All laughing aside, Marrero says she’s mortified by the incident and gets uncomfortable when talking about it.

“My issue is I don‘t think security was professional because they didn’t send anyone to check on me until 20 minutes later and I had already left,” she said Wednesday. “Instead of laughing, they should have said, ‘Is she OK?’ and been down there right away to check on me,” she said.

Since her accident, Marrero has recruited an attorney, James M. Polyak, to “conduct an investigation into what happened.”

And without a doubt her attorney’s “investigation” will determine that the mall was not at fault for his client’s stupidity.

Not only that, but she works at the mall. You think she’d know where the fountain is by now. If she wins any settlement or a court award, this will be the “hot coffee in the lap” of the texting age.

In my opinion, if she wanted some money for her stupidity, she had a chance to pick up some loose change when she was in the fountain, but blew it:

Update: If the mall is responsible for this person falling into the fountain, and if Sarah Palin is responsible for the Tucson shootings, then hey, why not blame Michelle Obama for increased pedestrian deaths? Turnabout is fair play.
