This lady that fell was on Good Morning America this morning. It goes deeper than just a funny video, and I really feel bad for her. I'm all for finding the humor in things, but sometimes, it just isn't funny. The security guards at that mall were out of line IMO.

She's contemplating suing the mall. For what, being a moron? I am sick to death of having to navigate my way around idiots who cannot seem to put their little electronic brains down!

Seriously....who calls their husband Daddy and then tells the world about it?
I get tired of people who can't get their faces away from their cell phones. How did we ever survive without them?
I'd chalk it up to lesson learned and leave it at that.
Ironically it was probably put on youtube via cell phone - and perhaps Daddy did it
lol! +1

I can even think how many times I've been bumped into by some moron texting or yakking on a cell phone not paying attention to what they are doing. I thought it was hilarious.

I don't feel sorry for her AT ALL. You can barely see her and I couldn't see any details of her face. How many people would have known who she was if she didn't put her face EVERYWHERE and blab to everyone she fell in the fountain. Instead of keeping quiet and denying it was her she just started squawking.

Oh and EWWWW ...Daddy? That's the last person I want to equate my mate with.....

The guy from housekeeping asked her if she was okay and she said, "Yes, I'm just a little wet." I think if she had slipped and fallen down, security would have been right over, fearing a lawsuit, but this was CLEARLY her fault and she even acknowledges that.

I agree that she's the one in the media identifying herself, nobody else would have known it was her. She outed herself. I don't feel sorry for her, either.

She needs to put her big girl panties on and get over it. Or maybe in her case, Depends.

I still don't find the humor in anybody falling, nor the security guard taping this to put it online, but wow, she has made the rounds today in the media. I do agree, put on your big girl panties, and move on, it doesn't warrant this much attention.
