    The People's Court

    Oh that guy looked like he dressed with a pile of junk from a second hand store (sings "I'mma gonna pop some tags, only got $20 in my pocket") What's up with the old tux jacket? And the weird glasses (I'm guessing they had clear lenses). Showing his chest was supposed to hypnotize Judge Marilyn? Ugh, he was such a scammah.

    A few months before tax time, I see signs pop up that say "Get $3500 for each child (amount is most likely wrong, but it's some huge similar amount). So the greedy and easily fooled that may not pay much in taxes but wanna cash in on that bow-nan-zah (Thanks Judge Marilyn) mosey on over and get a "quote" on how much they are gonna get, not concentrating on how much they are going to PAY. Plus as we all are aware, the declaring of children as dependents can be passed off to other relatives or friends in payment for child care for the year, hairdressing fees or even a 2001 Mercedes hoopty with 169,000 miles. (aka their "dream car"). It's just like anything else - people want free stuff and they want it NOOOOOWWWWW!!!! (I'm channeling one of our local law firms that advertises during JJ).

    We get this ALL the time here in South Florida. "It's raining guys - there might be a thunderstorm". Geeze. My JJ comes on at 4:00 PM so it get preempted for everything - weather, car chases out of Miami (which happen more frequently than you think and is quite enjoyable as long as JJ doesn't get preempted - then I get my cranky shoes on and start telling people to get off my lawn), new conferences, etc. That car guy that supposedly got pushed by the defendants was so annoying. I was wishing I could slam the door on his leg myself.

    All I keep thinking of was Sally O'Malley from SNL (played by Molly Shannon yelling "Ahmmm FIFTY!!" Am I the only one that's totally put to sleep by Laci Mae and her tan?

    Hoarders

    I live in a townhouse and several years back, the owner next to me rented to a hoarder, a woman with four adult kids and a couple of young grandkids popping in and out. One of the daughter would sit in the driveway and smoke and then throw the cigarette butts into the shared garden space until there was a mound of butts - I'm talking half a garbage can full. Then the roaches started coming through our shared wall. When they finally left (in the middle of the night of course) they left piles and piles of roach-infested debris on the shared lawn/garden area. I'm talking straight garbage out of the bag/ papers/rotten food/clothing with tags/ broken toys, etc etc. Years later I'm still paying an exterminator to make sure no roaches come back. So yes it was in my best interest to make sure that got cleaned up. Ironically another neighbor from down the street came and picked up a significant portion of that hoard and placed it in her garage. When it started spilling out into the driveway, I called code enforcement several time and let them deal with it. No more Ms. Nice Guy.

    I call that the Roseanne Couch suit. Remember back when Roseanne Barr/Connor/ Thomas/ whatever had that big old plaid couch made from industrial strength material on her show? (I actually had a couch, loveseat and chair out of that same fabric back in the day that we bought from some random National Furniture Warehouse.

    Hoarders

    I know people who are very two faced, showing their charming side to some, and turning into total jerks behind the scenes. That's not necessarily mental illness to the point of delusion - that's just narcissism and manipulation. IMHO Sandra showed whatever face/side that she needed to get what she wanted and when she didn't get what she wanted, she turned into a spoiled child. Not the same as people who have houses filled with dead sailcats and roaches, people consumed with depression so that they can't hardly function, or people who have bottles of urine and dirty adult diapers piled up in their homes. Of course I don't see the homeowners as totally selfless either, but they bought the house fair and square, and whether they wanted it for a family home, an AirBNB or to raise an army of dancing hamsters, it was their choice to do whatever they wanted with their property. Perhaps they saw the Hoarders show as an opportunity to finally get Sandra off the property without being "the bad guys". They didn't have to let her take ANYTHING. They could have just evicted her and had the sheriff haul her off, kicking and screaming.

    I had watched the original Sandra episodes several months back. Then I watched the Overload episode last night with enhanced scenes. I thought it was going to be pretty much the same, but I was surprised. I just sat there with my mouth hanging open AGAIN. Right off the bat, I could see how Sandra got those nice new homeowners pulled into her delusion. In the South, most people are very respectful of elders, particularly older Southern women. She had me hooked right off the bat for a few minutes (and I already knew how that story was going to end) so I imagine the new homeowners thought "what harm can this do"? And then when she brought in some friends to help her, I was thinking "who would be kind enough to help that old crazy broad"? She would pull out the "hey, can you hand me that basket" routine and next thing the one homeowner was helping sort and stacking things up for her. She really could flip that switch in a second so that butter wouldn't melt in her mouth and then be mean as a snake.

    The Toe Bro

    I have a fairly strong stomach but when that hemostat locked I'm already going "ooooohhhhhh", just waiting for the "gator roll" (perfect phrase). One thing I do enjoy is Toe Bro's absolute enthusiasm for everything he does. He really appears to love his job, even though it appears gruesome to the rest of us. As for the missing big toenails - I've seen women at the pedicure place with fake big toenails. They usually involve big jewels or Swarovski (sp) crystals. So I'm sure there's some way to glue something on once the nail bed heals. Of course, they live in Canada so the season for sandals is much shorter than for us down in Florida. I guess if my toe was hurting so bad that I needed to get the toenail alligator rolled off to make the pain go away, I wouldn't really care about what it looked like afterwards....

    I saw that episode a couple of weeks ago on a rerun (again). Isn't that the lady that screams "LEAVE. . . . ME. . . ALONE!!!!" on the commercials? I will have to check out their FB page. By the way. . . I had plans for that rock. . . . . .

    Lacie Mae? She reminds me of the reincarnation of Miley Cyrus when she was Hannah Montana. And she's a little too "fixed up" for me with the blonde hair and the tan and the new teef. It distracts me from her voice.

    Oh, sweetie, please forgive my frankness, but you got a lot to learn about the judicial system. I sued somebody on my own and won a judgement. He refused to pay. Took him back to court and attached his job. He quit the job. Tried to attach his bank account but lo and behold, he closed it. Didn't own a car. Let his house go into foreclosure where I was right behind the bank (he also owed me a settlement upon sale of the house). The bank is now chasing him for their money. And I was tied up for years, getting gray hairs and getting a lot of stomachaches trying to chase this person around (who moved away to a state that didn't allow transfer of judgments so I couldn't attach his wages there, even though I found out where he worked). I lost around 50 grand in the proposition. I could have continued to pursue him, but it was costing me money every time I filed to attach something of his, only to be shot down. If somebody doesn't want to pay you, you're getting a big fat zero if they decide they wanna screw you over. My dad used to say you can sue anybody for anything, but it doesn't mean you're going to win and if you win, doesn't mean you're going to collect. Wise man.

    I missed this one but fun fact - Medicare/Medicaid have cracked down on medical transport services seriously. My DD years ago worked for a private ambulance company that would, for instance, pick up a patient from assisted living and take them to the ER (non-emergency cases). She moved on to nursing school but her old company ended up closing because they stopped getting reimbursed for those transports (and several other companies consolidated with other companies). Down here in South FL, many of the medical clinics have their own transportation solutions and I see vans full of patients going to clinics and offices on my way to work ( I work next to a large hospital).

    As well as how to get free babysitting AND pay your sister-in-law through the state (Thanks Byrd) and get free stuff in exchange for allowing your hairdresser's cousin's baby mama declaring your unrelated child as her dependent in exchange for free hair for the past year. ***sings*** All the loonneeely peeeeople - where do they all come from?" Answer: The Judge Judy Pitiful Shaking My Head Hour I have a co-worker who is 50 and divorced. She's pretty and smart and owns her own condo and has a decent job. She has been "talking" with a fella she met on Plenty of Fish who supposedly owns a house, yet is recovering from a bankruptcy (RUN!!! RUN!!!! **makes oo-gah sound like sinking ship***) who won't allow her to come over his house - want to get a hotel room after some event. Something smells terrible in this situation - yet she a big girl and she do what she wanna do.

    She said she was an ER nurse but my daughter is an ER nurse in South Florida and they don't wear a variety of scrubs - they wear one specific color when working in the hospital (to delineate them from other staff - she wears navy blue, patient care techs wear pink, unit secretaries wear a certain color, etc. Perhaps they are scrubs she found in her travels. There are good meds for OCD - I had another daughter who had serious OCD while in college and she was prescribed Lexapro and it made a world of difference - but she also went to see a therapist and did CBT therapy. I doubt Patricia sees herself as a hoarder or as having a problem. I have a friend who "collects" stuff and turns around and sells it for a pretty penny on Ebay. She even did the bulk pickup routine for a while. But she doesn't have piles of useless garbage in her yard or house and nobody is calling Code Enforcement on her. I suspect those women who favor the Tandy Leather look are perhaps pickled with alcohol and are also smokers. Lots of us down here use sunscreen as a moisturizer. Skin cancer is a big deal down here as well although I can't imagine Patricia going to the dermatologist for a screening.
