Damn you White Castle and your normal sized chairs. Martin Kessman just wants to sit down and enjoy his #2 Combo. The problem is he can’t. Not only could he not wedge himself into a booth, he also bumped his knee.
After hitting his knee on one the metal supports, he had to limp out of the restaurant. It’s one thing to have a hard time fitting into a seat, but when you start bumping your knee, a line needs to be drawn. So Martin did the only logical thing someone who bumped his knee would do, he filed a lawsuit against White Castle.
Martin states that like pregnant women and handicapped people, he has rights too. It’s not fair that his knee hurts because the booth at White Castle was too small. He hopes one day all fat people can go into restaurants without the worry of bumping their knees.
Martin says he “isn’t humungous” and claims he has no trouble fitting into seats on airlines or booths at other dining establishments. After writing 3 letters to White Castle, he received coupons for free hamburgers…but the cheese wasn’t included. What a slap in the knee. White Castle has the nerve to make Martin buy his own cheese for his free burgers. He feels this violates his civil rights as a fat man. Martin is seeking bigger booths and unspecified damages. I suppose he could have avoided all this and sat in a chair…
