The dick who won my Macbook Pro on Ebay isn't paying or responding to Ebay's 'resolution center.'
Extra special bullshit: no negative feedback for buyers.

Also, the jeans I ordered from SelfEdge on 11/19 (noon PST) haven't shipped. Even with Thanksgiving and hemming, I think two weeks (and another five days to get them after that) is excessive. At worst they could warn you when you order or keep customers updated a little.

What's weird is none of my older SE orders took anywhere near this long.

Got to agree with your point to show up....I pay very close attention to which of my people show at outside parties, activities and who doesn't. It ain't ass kissing, but rather interest in the company and advancing. Keep drinking to a minimum.

Sorry for the novel, but - last Saturday after the FSU v. UF game, I run into some old friends of mine. They are all absolutely shitfaced, I'm stone cold sober. We're all ex-jocks, so I expected a low level of the typical drunken homoerotic hazing stuff - cup checks, ass slaps, arm punches. Two of my friends stop after I explain that I'm sober, it hurts, we're in our thirties now, etc.

One guy though does not stop. I tolerate it for almost an hour, asking him nicely numerous times, asking the othe rguys to restrain him, etc. I finally explain to him that, while he's bigger than me and could kick my ass sober, he's drunk and if he doesn't stop I'll bodyslam him in front of the forty or so people at the post-game tailgate.

So he slaps me in the face and then gets in a fighting pose and eggs me on. I snap. I shoot, pick him up and slam him down in a patch of ice and walk off. He's stunned a bit, gets up after about three minutes, and then charges me. I pick him up again and throw him into a table. He finally stops and we do the drunken (on his part) brohug thing and I think it's over.

I will admit, it felt good to do it. I've been under a lot of stress lately and I haven't let myself get angry like that in probably five or six years. I'm not a tough guy, at all, so it felt good to bodyslam a bigger guy.

Today, I suppose after waiting for me to call and apologize, the "friend" calls to tell me I should apologize. I decline and explain that he egged me on, I asked him for almost an hour to stop, my other two friends stop, etc. He then says, only half-joking, that I might have to apologize in court. I, half-joking of course , explain that if he can show damages, he might have a case. He says that he can show damages alright. I then remember his dad's an orthopedic surgeon. I force a chuckle and say "Alright man, we'll see. Hope you feel better. " And then hang up.

I get the feeling I'm going to need to build a coalition with my other two friends to stop this shit. It just sucks to bring drama into the situation.

Also, tonight, the ex called me over and proceeded to explain to me for about two hours what a rotten person I was. I was a rotten person to her, so I just sat there and took it.

What a mess we make for ourselves.

Jesus FLMM. That sounds like quite the mess you got yourself into. Do you really think this asshole will take you to court?
post #12787 of 85782
jeesh.. 2 hours of an ex rambling on you... how rotten were you?
post #12788 of 85782
FLMM: sorry to hear you're having what sounds like a bad week there. Go speak to a lawyer. First consult is typically free. Should at the very least put your mind at ease. It may be the case that your 'friend' is angry and embarassed, and that it will blow over, but you'll want to be ready just in case. He attacked you, right? Always hate to hear about things like this; hate to say it and mean you no offense, but sounds like you're better off without a "friend" like that in your life.

@ Bhowie and Rube: OK, wise guys, why don't you two put your chops to good use and share with the class the law of torts, specifically, as it relates to civil assault and battery, the right of self defense, the policies behind it as well as its limitations, and whether the fact that alcohol was involved has any bearing or relevance to the facts of this case, as relayed to us by the individual concerned. I would also like you to explain to the class the professional rules of responsibility, and how their application on the Internet affects my response, if at all. Both the class and this professor of law are waiting ... Otherwise, put those chops to other use, as you've nothing obviously worthwhile to add to the discussion, nor are either of you able to assist the individual concerned. ... still waiting ... the class hasn't got all day!

I think he is a lawyer. Am I wrong?

No, you are not. And why I specifically told him to speak to his lawyer, which one should always do when you believe that a law suit is or may be pending--i.e., before you are served, when you have reason to believe it is coming. I also told him that doing so should put his mind at ease. In the meantime, I would strongly advise him not to have any further communication with this "friend", or to discuss this matter further except to his lawyer, which communications are governed by solicitor-client privilege, unlike the SF forum which is a public board.
