Patricia Frankhouser filed a lawsuit in Jeannette, Pa., in November against the Norfolk Southern railway as a result of being hit by a train 10 months earlier as she walked on the tracks. Most such injuries nowadays involve pedestrians distracted by earphoned music players, but Frankhouser claimed merely that Norfolk Southern was negligent for not posting signs warning that the railroad tracks are sometimes used by trains.

Country Inn & Suites
Asheville, NC

We had never stayed in a Country Inn & Suites before. We had a suite – room 513B in July 2010. We checked out, and were about an hour down the road when we started itching. We discovered that my husband had bites all over his body – he had slept under the sheets. I slept on top of the sheets and only had bites on my arms.

We did not know what they were from. When we arrived home in Ohio, we looked up bite pictures on the internet and discovered that they were bed bug bites. I called Country Inn & Suites three different times, but unfortunately the manager was not in any of the times that I called.

We washed everything thoroughly, but we had taken our computer bags and my purse in and our own pillows. We swept off all our suitcases and the computer bags etc. We were home for a couple of weeks before we saw a bug run across our couch. We caught it and called an exterminator who confirmed that it was in fact a bedbug. We through out our sectional couch and ripped out all the carpeting in our house. We threw out all our pillows. We bought new pillows and put the zipper covers on them. It has been almost 6 months and we have not seen another bug.

Staying at Country Inn & Suites has been the worst experience of my life.

I am writing this now because I just discovered this site and I want other people to know of the horrible conditions at that hotel.
