Billyuns and buck-and-a-quarters....
I kicked in on eight Powerball number sets with one of my offices last week. We didn't win a plugged nickel.  So of  course I'm back in on the even stupider-bigger chance tonight, and I expect absolutely nothing more than I "won" the last time.

Work's been busy.  A bunch of people have been calling about bankruptcies after seemingly putting them off until after the holidays.  I've filed two in the past week, have at least two more that are at least partly paid waiting to be finalized, and a backlog of first appointments beyond that.  Court has been quiet this week, but I then have at least six BK hearings already scheduled over the following three weeks.

Monday was a stressful 6½ hour stretch of depositions in a case that shouldn't take that long to try in its entirety.  The defendant is throwing ridiculously too much money at defending it, and they're leaving no stone, or in this case pop can, unturned. It's a property theft claim- items stolen from a car- and the defense lawyer was prepared, for the second time in this case's history, to go line by line through close to 150 separate receipts for the stolen items. He finally backed off and focused on the maybe half dozen they had an issue with, but that's when it got even stupider.

One of the receipts was from Tarjay- a 20-ish dollar clothing item, and a $1.29 can of Diet Coke.  Insurance Lawyer actually tried to get my client backed in to admitting fraud because she drank the pop at the register and forgot to take it off the claim.

No. She swore on a stack of Bibles she bought it and kept it as a gift. For her daughter. Because it was a "share a coke" can with the kid's name on it and it had been very hard to find one.


He's applying salve to his newly cut second ass right about now.  Maybe, with over three years' interest on the purchase plus tax and deposit, she can afford to buy a Powerball ticket with the price of that can.

I needed that laugh, thank you.
