    They knew there was a problem and didn't do anything? Sounds like he has a case.

    I'm surprised anyone's still using those old steam-powered urinals. It must be annoying having to fill them with coal and stoke them up each morning when you open the restaurant.

    It's only negligence if someone gets hurt?

    How can you tell there's negligence if no one is hurt?

    Heh.

    No such thing as accidental negligence. Or something.

    Have you ever been to an Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza? The oven is coal fired and they have to add coal once a day, they never turn off.

    Great pizza.

    I think it's more along the lines of physical damage than pain even, if it was the kitchen's sink that provided the hot water, and it shot out of the urinal's drain via routing through partially untrapped plumbing, then the person washing the dishes likely had at least as much 'steam', likely more heat, than mr chilly red-neck/balls. Now if he were on a toilet, and there were no urinals, he probably could have had some disgusting splashback but not enough heat due to the toilet water absorbing most of that heat.

    This guy likely just got a bit of mild temperature steam, something that'd be like the afterburn from aftershave. Arby's should've hired a low cost prostitute to make sure his plumbing was in working order shortly after the incident, then deny his claim and give him a coupon for half off curlie fries.
