    A gross glass of tea.

    Shoney's Sued Over Alleged Condom in Tea
    By KELLEY SCHOONOVER
    AP
    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (May 11) - A Wyoming County man who says he found a condom in his iced tea glass last Mother's Day and lives in fear that he contracted a disease from it is suing the Shoney's restaurant in Logan and the company that operates it.

    The lawsuit filed Thursday on behalf of James and Selena Bledsoe says that upon discovering the condom James Bledsoe "immediately became horribly ill, dry heaving and nearly vomiting at the table. He then ran for the nearest restroom to vomit."

    Named as defendants in the lawsuit, which was filed in circuit court in Kanawha County, where restaurant franchisee ShoRest LLC is located, are the restaurant manager, assistant manager and the server who waited on the Bledsoes.

    The lawsuit alleges that the Bledsoes, their two children and several other family members were eating at the Logan restaurant last May 14 when James Bledsoe, 30, saw the unwrapped condom in his half-finished drink.

    When he returned from the bathroom, Bledsoe allegedly saw the restaurant's assistant manager and several other employees, including his server, laughing.

    A call to ShoRest Chief Operating Officer Rory Smith was not immediately returned on Friday.

    The lawsuit alleges that the restaurant manager promised to comply with Bledsoe's request to keep the glass and its contents so it could be tested, but didn't.

    "It's caused him (Bledsoe) a great deal of stress," Bledsoe's Beckley lawyer, Stephen New, said Friday.

    Initial tests for communicable diseases were negative, but Bledsoe expects to be tested for the next seven years. He's been so worried, the lawsuit says, that it's affected his relationships with his family and caused him trouble sleeping and concentrating.

    The lawsuit, which requests a jury trial, seeks an unspecified amount in both punitive and compensatory damages.

    I'm opposed to frivolous law suits. However, if I was on the jury in this case, I would have to rule in favor of the plaintiff.

    Nope, there are too many eye witnesses in this case, plus arrogant defendants. Even if it was done as a joke by the management and staff, putting an unwrapped condom in a patron's glass of tea is no joking matter; and IMO grounds for a law suit and a ruling in favor of the plaintiff.

    what the heck are they stirring the tea with.

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."

    Maybe it was left over from a tea bagging incident?

    Tea bagging or T-banging, whatever...Can you imagine drinking a half glass of tea, then seeing this thing smiling/grinning at you?

    He was probably thirsty and swigged it down without looking. I had 3 glasses of tea in a restaurant tonight and didn't examine either glass. There could have been a pink baby mouse in there, with bulging blue eyes and I wouldn't have noticed it.
