a beach towel?!?

I heard on the radio today that a man sued his surgeon for leaving a 16x28 beach towel in his body for 3 months.

first - what the HELL was a beach towel doing in the operating room???

second - wouldn't you notice something like that? like, 'hey, this is a strange bulge i didn't have before! where did this come from?'

this whole thing grosses me out. the guy won his case, for 450,000. i don't know about you, but if that were me i'd want at least a few mil and the guy's medical liscence to run through my shredder. but then again, i do live in the lawsuit capital of the country. ;-)

Only $450,000 for a beach towel? I don't like lawsuits but $450,00 doesn't sound like it's enough to cover the cost of a beach towel.
