“Finger-finder has history of legal battles
Las Vegas -- The woman who found a finger in a bowl of chili at a San Jose Wendy's has a history of legal battles, including an earlier claim against a restaurant alleging tainted food sickened her daughter.
When the woman's daughter, Genesis Reyes, contracted salmonella poisoning in 2003 after eating at a Las Vegas El Pollo Loco, the family successfully demanded that the restaurant pay for $30,000 in medical bills she racked up during a three-day hospitalization, said Bono and the woman's son, Guadalupe Reyes. An El Pollo Loco official could not confirm the incident late Friday.
In 2000, she sued a San Jose car dealership and Goodyear Tire Corp., saying she was severely injured after a front tire fell off her GMC Sierra sport utility vehicle as she drove on Interstate 880 in San Jose in 1999. She also sued General Motors Corp.
In 1999, Ayala filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against La Oferta Review, a San Jose Spanish-language newspaper, claiming a man who worked there exposed himself to her the first day she began work as a bilingual receptionist. The newspaper claimed the man, Juan Carlos Brown, was just a tenant in its building, but Ayala reached an out-of-court settlement in 2002.
Although Ayala has been out of work for a year because of a foot injury, she said she is financially sound and recently refinanced her two-story, four- bedroom home on the southeast outskirts of Las Vegas, which she said is worth $500,000.
Guadalupe Reyes, 18, said his mom is well-off and is not motivated by greed.
"What people are trying to say is that she's a con artist. But that's not true,'' he said. "If she's about lawsuits, why would she pay $20,000 cash for this truck?'' he added, pointing to a new Dodge pickup. "My mom's wealthy.''
“Obviously Guadalupe (Reyes, 18) is now too old to work the Neverland scam, too bad.”
“Wonder how long before she's charged.”
“Wait... Has anyone checked to make sure she has all ten fingers?”
“on CSI the DNA testing only takes about 3 minutes give or take a commercial.”
Here we go again
“As she worked her way to the bottom of her favorite salad at the Gemini Restaurant in Wheat Ridge, Betty Manion felt something "squishy" with her fork.
Manion does not see well, so she asked her friend, Louise Nation, what it was.
"I thought at first it was a jalapeño pepper - it was that size, and it was green," Nation said. "But it was a full-size dead mouse. Looking back on it, it's a wonder I didn't scream."
Manion says she is frustrated that the restaurant never replied to her letter seeking an apology. John Murchison, the manager of the restaurant at 4300 Wadsworth Blvd., sent her a formal report:
"Customer was eating a Bombay Salad and found a dead mouse in the lettuce mixture. ... No consumption of mouse had occurred, as far as I could see."
“Gemini has a restaurant?”
“This probably happens everytime some TV station re-runs Strange Brew...”
“Yeah, I'd expect Gemini to apologize, first to this lady, then to the rest of us for not telling us she has a restaurant, presumably so she doesn't have to give us all free food.”
“Uhhh, I think I will skip on the free vole, Bison!”
“Yeah, maybe it's a good thing that she didn't tell us.”
“I thought you'd see it my way! :)”

Wendy's Accuser Fingered!
“It will be interesting to hear what they have found.”
“Apparently she's been charged with grand larceny and attempted grand larceny. Maybe she stole the finger?”
“i wonder who fingered her...”
“This is just a guess, but I'm thinking it was a cadaver finger. Whether she obtained it herself or via bribing a funeral home or morgue employee will remain to be seen. Could have come from a hospital too I suppose.
It's completely possible though, that she fed some idiot a story about how if they would just give her a finger she'd split her judgement with them.”
“I don't know who fingered her, but bet she doesn't like the way this endeavor is going down.”
“...or that cold empty feeling she got when she was arrested.”
“D'ya think on her way into the courtroom she'll give all the media photographers the finger?”
“If she goes to prison...would they poke a finger into her....all her orifices?
Apparently, she had filed a number of lawsuits against other companies in the past. She deserves what she's getting now.”
“Ewww! Good thing he didn't order the "Chocolate Cherry Garcia".”
“I will never order a Flurry with Fractured Fingers again.”
“The other night in the ER I saw a jar with a bloody finger in it :D”
Interesting chart on Wendy's stock. Prior to the March 22 finger hoax WEN was trading below 40 dollars and flatlined. Prior to the discovery of fraud on the part of the finger planter the stock stars to rally. On April 22 the hoax is confirmed as fraud. The stock starts to bolt skyward on the news. Now with a new finger in the custard that is a confirmed work related accident the stock is still trading up currently 44.10 trading up .64 and rising. Should we be led to believe that fingers in the food are good for the stock? We live in a very strange world. Happy trading!”
The midmorning dip in price has recovered and we are looking at 1.25% gains for the afternoon on news of a new finger in the custard.”
“The "finger in the custard" incident didn't happen at a Wendy's...”
“Unlike a recent incident at a Wendy's restaurant in California, no questions of truth have been raised about the finger served up to go at Kohl's Frozen Custard and found later at home by Clarence Stowers.
“Sorry, but we don't have a general "body part in food" thread, so perhaps this was a little misleading.”
“The only REALLY sick thing about this whole story is the anti-business froot-loop “liberals” in northern Californka who told everyone to boycott Wendy’s, thus possibly hurting an innocent business, all their innocent employees, their innocent suppliers, and their innocent customers.
I find life is much easier when I’m a little surer of my facts before I act to save the planet from the evils of big, bad, business. I’ll bet these are the same bozos who think the Californka “energy crisis” was caused by Enron.
LA Times my arse. We can always count on the objective reporting of the LA Times. You’ve remained impartial about this, violin. Thank God you aren’t one of those wacko “totalitarian lefties.””
“talking of friut-loops. There's a man obsessed. He's sees liberal conspiracies therories after people don't want to eat where it was thought human digits have been found in the food.

“Y2, you constantly amaze me. How do you have time to do anything but wash your underwear?”
“The guy's going to make some money out of this one.”
“Gotta check this out:
“Good one BowlderMan. Maybe her feet were in the ice cream.”
“I don't feel like looking for a link, but here in Wilmington we had a finger tip in the ice cream event a couple days ago. Dude got the tip of his finger whacked off when making a blizzard (I think) and ran to teh back without saying why. The drive thru girl came ove an got the ice cream and gave it to teh dude in his car.
This guy can't find a lawyer in town to take his case. The guy didn't tell the store, he went first to the media, he didn't give the finger tip back to the employee so it could be reattached if possible. Its an out and out money grab and most lawyers here know he wouldn't find a sympathetic jury.
Jay Leno mentioned it last night on his show. Oh glory. I think the last time he mentioned us we had a teacher teaching the word niggardly.”
“Article about Finger in Frozen Custard guy, who won't give finger back. Especially the first 6 hours when it could have been reattached. Dumb@ss.
“Thats the story from my town. Thanks.
The article quotes his attorney from Greensboro, which is pretty durn far from Wilmington. You have to go past Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham (all around 2 hrs from here) to get to greensboro which is at least 3 1/2 hours from here.”
“Hey, free small frostys this weekend at Wendys!”
“Apparently, they traced it because of a tip.”
“last day for free Frosty!!
No fingers, just Milk, Sugar, Cream, Corn Syrup, Whey, Nonfat Milk, Cocoa, extract of Soylent Green, Dextrose...Hey!! wait a minute!!! :D”
“Yeah, can I get a large fry, one chiken sandwich and a bowl of chili, hold the finger....”
“Is there an echo in here?”
