Try buying a blessed ficus. The damned ones are harder to find.

(We've already spent like $80K) Could be worse if we have to appeal, but we appear to have an ironclad legal argument that will prevail on appeal even if we get screwed by a jury. In fact, we are no longer even defendants; we were let out of the case after a successful motion for dismissal. The only defendant left is our employee, but we are paying for his defense so as not to leave him twisting in the wind.

Even a $10K settlement, however, would put a few grand in the pocket of a convicted unemployment insurance fraudster who we have on tape at deposition saying, repeatedly, that he will do anything, say anything, even lie under oath, to get money, who sued us after temping here for less than three weeks.

The case was taken by an unemployed fresh law school grad on speculation, who has now been employed by a firm and told to get this thing done. He hadn't even made a settlement offer, not one, even at mandated settlement mediation.

I don't want to pay it. I want the pyrrhic victory. But it is stupid to do so. But it is also infuriating to think that this guy would see a penny.

Its the cost of doing business. Settle and move on. Your time and sanity is worth the $10K.

Carbon monoxide detector in my apartment didn't have any batteries in it. ffffuuuu.gif

It's also in the kitchen. I may buy one for the bedroom.

A couple hours ago I panicked and got very nauseated when I reflected on my professional life and concluded I was a failure. I should try not to do that.

people (90% women) who walk into a restaurant or coffee shop on the phone, keep talking on the phone, step up to the counter and keep talking on the phone as the person at the register asks them for their order. it's annoying enough for me as a casual bystander, if i were the employee i would slap that fucking phone out of their hands.

more typical behavior for people who are so important they cannot end their god dam phone conversations.

I read French all day today. When I do that, I always silently pronounce the words in the back of my throat. (Why? I don't freegin' know probably because I am a man of simple.) So now my throat hurts.

I was gonna rant about something related to my side business, and also about the feeling of getting screwed over but I just found out my good friend's mom who got hit by a car while crossing her street two sundays ago has just passed away. she was a very nice lady, and at her 70s she and her husband would still travel and walk and hold hands and all that... and just like that life is fucking gone. because a fucking asshole didn't think speeding AND then doing a counterflow can kill.

and aside from that, ANOTHER good friend's dad was blindsided near his house out there in virginia. he's also not doing great from what I heard.

Trying to find a reasonably priced industrial lamp appears to be quite an effort.
