Too much of law is not a good thing either. Another personal story, I got hit by a car two years ago and I got covered by the government. I didn't have to pay a dime for the hospital bills and stuff. I was two days in the hospital and when I got out, I had my right leg and arm broken, a right dislocated shoulder, scratches on my body and my right thigh was numb (still numb, by the way). I was covered by the government so it was ok if we didn't sue the one who hit me; however, I had to do the police report and I had to sue him. In the middle of the sueing process, I gave up on it (personal reason). I decided to close the case. A lot of people who knew about it told me it was a loss that I didn't sue the guy. Some of them even told me that I should have faked my condition, in other words, made it worst. I should have gone to the therapy, massage, and so on. I would have gotten a lot of money from that person's insurance company. It made me sick when I was listening to those words. I and my mom felt that it wasn't a loss, but they did. :roll: She said it was ok to close the case since she thought that person did not mean to hit me; it was an accident. Also, she said it was ok to not have that money because it wasn't ours in the first place. That was how we dealt with our problems, Vietnamese way. :lol:
Other people deal with their accidents differently. Some of them even fake it although when there is none. I remember there was once time I and my cousin were in the car. My cousin was trying to park her car near the area that some strange kids were playing. When she was doing a reverse, she saw something kinda "fly" by and then we heard an owie. We both stepped out of the car. There was a kid lying on the ground telling us that my cousin hit him. My cousin got so mad because she knew she did not hit him and that guy was faking it. No matter what we said, he did not get up. My mom was standing near the window saw the whole thing. She came down and was faking that she didn't know us. She told him she witnessed everything. He looked at her really mad then he got up and ran away. Could you believe it? :roll:

According to Arale's saying, I also think that the unemployment benifits is not so attractive that can make people not go to look for a job since it is quite difficult to get that benefits.
However, if there are really someone who has such a thinking,I think it's better for the government to cut the benifits which is providing to them.
Please give this money to the needs.
