It's my understanding that there are Big Butt parties, where women inject industrial-grade silicone or cement into their buttocks, because giant, outsized butts are fashionable and attract mates?

Oh lawd, I am so old.  All these decades trying to figure out how to reduce my big hiney.  Now it's desirable...

Trying to figure out where to place my natural ample boobage...flat, no bra was how we used to roll..

Must be exhausting to be a young woman these days. Butt here, boobs there, lips this, tattoos that...

We've come a long way, baby...so glad we marched...

An attraction for a shapely, firm and slightly voluminous behind, both on men and women, is certainly nothing new (see the famous Venus Callipyge statues). But these three ladies brought it to a level that I can only call grotesque, both in volume and in unmoving cement-like appearance. I would fear breaking my knuckles if I were ever inclined to grab such an object.  Being given an ample anatomy by genetics is one thing, but deliberately aspiring for this extreme reaches quite another dimension of strange faddishness.

But considering how they all seemed very light in the brains area, I suppose they needed a solid counterweight and ballast to preserve some physical balance and stability.

Friday there was a rerun that I wish I would have skipped.    A pony and dog were savagely attacked by the neighbors Boxers.   The chain link fence on his side (apparently it's a rural area) was actually rolled up, for some reason I didn't catch.    The woman pony and dog owner came home to see her dog savagely mauled, the pony even worse, and the three (?) Boxers standing in her pasture with blood all over them. 

If you happen to be a wildfire fire fighter in California, then apparently Judge M. cuts you a break.    Because she gave the pony owner very little for her pony, but it was also a pony party animal, and the woman had owned it for many years.     The dog owner kept saying it wasn't anything his dogs did, because they were good dogs, and just because there was blood all over three dogs, and they were on plaintiff's property, then it was wrong to blame them.    From testimony, this is not the first time the animals were on the neighbor's property.     

From testimony, the pony owner used to feed the Boxers sometimes too.    However, I don't see what that does to mitigate the damage that the dogs did.   

Near where I live now, there's a no-kill shelter that does good work, getting cats and dogs new homes.   However, anything with a square head is called a "Lab-cross".     I've seen the "Boxer-cross" used too, as zillabreeze says.

I put a question mark at the end of my statement because I've never known a "straight guy" who demanded an enormous, grotesquely enhanced backside(or giant trout lips or DDDD-sized breasts. It's women doing this to themselves, thinking men want this and will find their unnatural, pumped-up-to-explosion level attributes attractive in some way. IMO, they do not.

Our boxer was a real sweetheart, a love bucket.  We spoiled him rotten, too, and loved it.

I think when litigants in dog cases appear, they should have close-up photos of their dogs at hand.  So there is NO mistaking what breed they are discussing.

I think she should team up with the plaintiff in today's mice infestation case who lived under allegedly unbearable conditions for many months and wanted reimbursement for rent she willingly paid. Her testimony was nothing else than lies from a lying precious liar snowflake who lies.

Boy, was JM pissed at this plaintiff. We got another loan officer (I think the second one within the last week) who seems to have no comprehension as to what money really is. Plaintiff not only gets rooked into buying a dumb timeshare but puts her boyfriend's name on the loan as well. JM wants to know what provisions were made if she and the boyfriend broke up. "I never thought of that", says plaintiff. Duh. She's a loan officer who doesn't think past today. She's willing to pay anything to keep the boyfriend around and admits she financed the relationship - then - even to the point of buying a 4K engagement ring for herself (for sure Mr. Walgreen can't afford that) and a 3K chain for him. She's a loan officer who has to go one of these usurious lending companies because, well, she really doesn't think money is a real thing and that when you spend like a maniac you have to pay eventually. She makes "six figures" but somehow expected her boyfriend, who works stocking shelves or something at Walgreens, to kick in his share of all this. She cheats on him, so he doesn't feel she deserves to get the payments for the silly timeshare. He wants his water filtration system back. "I care about the water filter," Mr.Walgreen says tearfully.  He got a 30K settlement for some accident, but I guess they blew through that pretty quickly, and now the loan officer is in all kinds of debt. Maybe now she knows that money, even if it's only on paper, is a real thing? I dunno. Anyway, if any people within range of her financial institution need a loan for even the silliest things - giant engagement rings, ostentatious weddings, or big-ass rims, just go see her. For sure you'll get it.  5K for the plaintiff and the beloved water filter for the def. He is also supposed to sign the timeshare over to her.

Then we had a freak show of such proportions it was nearly awesome. We had, 'Yes, I do have a police report... well, I don't' have it WITH me today... I have hospital records and pictures showing def assaulted me, but not with me." Apparently records he did have showed elevated blood pressure. Yeah, that's a danger when you are morbidly obese. And from the def, "I was working that day. Yes, I have records of that, but I never thought of bringing them TODAY. I do have receipts of all the food the plaintiff ate, but I don't have them here." I guess they expected JM to go home with them and check out this shit. Other than that, the most shocking thing was the plaintiff stating that def cheated on his wife, something which plaintiff felt duty bound to inform the wife, along with a recorded threat to come back with a 9-millimeter pistol. If the defendant - also morbidly obese, unable to stand for this case and with a nasty grill - can find all these "girls" to do nasty "stuff" with, there is no hope anywhere.

Ho hum. Gross def. buys an 18-year old Honda from the plaintiff, pays him only 600$ of the 1300$ she agreed on and then pays him nothing else because she says the car has problems, and nothing was in writing so she doesn't have to pay, right? I guess she's a lawyer in her spare time. She never noticed these problems. like the driver's side window not working,  since she was too damned lazy to bother with a test drive. Plaintiff is kind enough to fix some shit on the old beater after she bitches about it, but that's not good enough for the nasty blob def. I wish JM would start telling these morons to knock it off with the "basically" which defendant must have used ten times in this case. She actually tries to act like the victim here. Disgusting person. I really hope the plaintiff learned not to let some deadbeat have a car before they paid for it. After all, once it's in their possession, what is the incentive to pay what they owe?

I sit down to enjoy my snack. It was nearly ruined by the puke case. Def, a dull-eyed moron so dumb he could barely articulate a single thought is being sued by the plaintiff after he got drunk at some company party and puked all over plaintiff's suit. Disgusting. Anyway, the plaintiff appeared to be so mature,  well-spoken and well-dressed (in his 18-year old suit) until he explains to JM that he thought about "fighting" the moronic def. over this incident, but restrained himself in spite of urgings by other attendants to do so at this elegant soiree. Def. brings his Grandmama here for moral support and I just bet she bought him the ill-fitting mortician's outfit he was wearing here. Plaintiff has no receipts for his ruined suit, which he bought online 4 years ago. JM does a little eBay scanning and finds the very top price for a used suit like his is 140$ She includes the cost of the dry cleaning, and plaintiff gets 150$ instead of the 1K he wanted. He is not happy and is visibly fuming in the hall. 

Then some girls decided to go into business together, making and selling "head wraps" whatever they are. The plaintiff wanted out and wanted her investment back and goes and pounds and kicks def's door, so the def. says, and it was very emotionally distressing because her mother was there and mom was one month pregnant at the time. There are threatening texts, restraining orders and so on. All this drama over about 140$. Who cares? Anyway, does no one ever think of going to school before they start pumping out babies?  It seems not.

Finally, we had a truly amazing case of attitude and entitlement. The plaintiff, a young, able-bodied woman of normal intelligence somehow got Byrd to pay her first 3 months of rent, and most of it for the following three months. She even has a garage, something I certainly never had when I was renting, not that I needed one. I had no car because I had to give it up and had to pay for all the rent myself. Is she grateful for that? No, she is not. Predictably when she had to pay her own rent, the plaintiff started stiffing the def. landlord. The landlord can't stand her nasty, complaining, entitled ass, so gives her a 30-day notice to leave. Even though she had a month-to-month lease, how dare the landlord ask her to leave? Everyone should take care of her! Plaintiff stops paying rent, of course, and wants the def to pay her 5,000$ for her moving expenses and deposit on a new apartment, even though she is still there!  JM detested her, gives her nothing and awards the def. all the rent that is owed. Plaintiff does not get it, and is obnoxious and rude to Doug-in-the-Hall, saying JM didn't let her present all her evidence. "The door is that way, " Doug tells her.

Where does this attitude come from? If I were living on peoples' taxes, I think I might be a little more humble instead of issuing orders and making demands as though sucking up the hard-earned dollars of strangers is my right and I somehow not only deserve that, but another stranger should pay my moving costs.  Like, basically - wtf? Can't pay 1200$/month rent for a place with a garage, even though some government agency thinks, for some bizarre reason that you deserve it? Go live in a room. Plenty of those advertised on CL.

Ugh - in the gym case (similar to a recent one on JJ), I think the gym owner should have gotten her overdraft fees.  The client should NOT have gotten the money back and so the owner should not have overdrafted.  SInce the client shadily disputed the charges, the owner had money pulled out that shouldn't have been.

I was leaning towards that also. The owner had made provisions for certain amounts of her revenue/expenses in a certain way and had not planned for that particular disbursement, which was caused solely by the precipitous actions from the bad faith defendant. On the other hand, it is risky to live so close to the financial edge when you are in business; you should always have some sort of cushion, because you never know what kind of unexpected obligations you might suddenly have to face. Of course, this seems to be a very small scale operation, with not much cash flow to speak of.  At least she has learned a few lessons from this (JM was very generous with her advice) and should now tighten her procedures.

She is another one in a long line of litigants who somehow manage to think that once they ensconced in an appartment, they are now due lodgings permanently, from the landlord or from the state. Whether they have a month-to-month or yearly lease, it alway seems to come as an utter shock to them that they now have to move because their tenancy is not renewed. We know they do not make any financial plan for such an event since they expected to live there forever or at least until they decide unilaterally it's time to leave. And of course, someone has to compensate them for the tragic inconvenience and for their moving expenses, something the rest of us manage to pay out of our own pockets, thank you very much Miss Smirkson.

I believe the rent was 1250$/mth? Considering she got three months on Byrd, and three more months half-priced, she's in 5400$, courtesy of the people who pay taxes. Plenty for a deposit and moving, but no - the landlord should pay that. She doesn't want to take a penny from her own pocket for anything, well, nothing that doesn't directly benefit her or give her pleasure so it's more "gimme gimme".  So she squats and saves yet more money and the show will pay the landlord so the leech still wins. These cases make me so angry.

I saw a rerun this morning (at least I think it's a rerun), of the two people with the road rage incident, that could easily have ended in tragedy.    A man passes a woman's car, does the sudden breaking routine to make her mad, at a split in the road, the man blows the light to follow her some more, cuts her off, pounds on the top of her car with his fists, and it's all caught on the 911 tape.       Don't those people realize that the other drive could be armed?   Two friends of mine never made it home, because the driver harassing them shot them, so it does happen.

I never saw this one, and boy, did JM hate these litigants, with very good reason. Stupid plaintiff seemed to find something amusing about her behavior and the def, a huge pile of disgusting manure who thinks throwing coins at moving vehicles is a "fun thing" to do.  But he's Sir Galahad. He doesn't believe in terrorizing women who are alone! Well, in the plaintiff's case, she may as well have been alone since I can't see her namby-pamby big baby boy protecting her. Super-slob def must have said, "To be honest" and "honestly" about 6 times, as he continued to lie. For sure he rehearsed his folksy tale of his youth for his pathetic wife who must have found him irresistible. Imagine. JM's face, as she listened to the crap spewing from his blubbering pie hole, was simply awesome.

jm52_resized.jpg.2b8362965dcae65ced486dfc425a5f9a.jpg

Only two cases today. The first took up so much time as JM got very emotional, wanted to do a little counselling and delved into the dynamics of the girlfriend vs. family after girlfriend's boyfriend died. I guess it was in the middle of making whoopee since both were nekkid. Jomar went into extreme distress but instead of calling 911, plaintiff calls Jomar's mom to ask what she thinks she should do. It seems she needed to take some time to get dressed and didn't want the paramedics to see Jomar au naturel. According to the def, the girlfriend didn't call 911 for nearly an hour, by which time Jomar had sadly expired. Plaintiff's parents agreed to lend def money to bury Jomar. They even all went to a bank to get a promissory note witnessed and signed, but still def. doesn't think she should pay the money back. The only person I believed and had any sympathy for was the plaintiff's dad.  I know the plaintiff called herself Jomar's "wife" but had she been married to him, she and not her parents would have had to spring for the funeral cost and been reimbursed by the insurance and/or government money

Then girlfriend goes into loud, hysterical sobbing. I must say I admire people who can go from violent, wailing grief to dry-eyed composure in the blink of an eye. This case should have lasted 10 minutes since the promissory note said all that was needed to be said. 

Was it a Freudian slip when girlfriend/wife says she wanted the family to "all sit together and celebrate the death of 'mar"?

I think that the woman in the road rage case made a very foolish mistake when she honked at the man after they were going different directions.    I bet it wasn't a little beep either, but laid on the horn, and that started it all again.     Both drivers are lucky that it didn't end with someone bleeding out, which has happened all too often.     

I caught the (I guess rerun?) rerun of the woman who buys the horse, was a first time horse owner, and rides the horse many times over the three days she stayed at the seller's house.   Then the horse gets off the trailer, won't stand stock still at the mounting block.     Some horses do sense when the rider is nervous, and an absolute beginner who can't control them.     Then starts showing neurological symptoms, and is finally diagnosed with EPM (neurological disease), that eventually means the horse is retired.     The woman who did not get a pre-purchase exam on the horse by a vet, and signs a contract saying 'As Is', still wants a full refund.      She gets nothing, and deserves exactly that.

Well, the son was the most reasonable person in this encounter since he tried to prevent his mother from further escalating a situation already gone very bad. Not provoking further that big lug of a brute was a wise course of action in my view. If acting wisely is equivalent to namby-pambiness, then I am all for the latter!

The two main litigants were both unrepentant in their foolish behaviour and seemed even proud of it. It's too bad JM could not deem it mutual road rage and call it a draw.

Most of the landlord litigants on these shows do not do even a small fraction of the necessary homework you put in, which explains why they land in court.

Although in the case of that lady, the usual checks could have been skipped because her attitude was a clear sign that things would go bad and that the answer should be a clear and immediate rejection (unless of course she can temporarily dial back the attitude for the interview, which appears doubtful; judging from her demeanour, this is how she behaves every minute of every day).

Basically, she's a basic idiot. And trying to charge over $3000 to repair a driver's side window? Years ago I had the same problem with my old Aerostar (laugh if you must) van. Drove to the junkyard and they pulled a motor for $20 for the window. Had my now Ex replace it and voila, I could peruse any drive-through window I wanted. 

I had a co-worker who had one of those old Hondas. She ended up getting a new car and somebody bought the Honda off of Craigslist from her for $3300. Apparently they are all the rage where the young guys fix them up and put big exhaust pipes on them and race them. So, basically, the basic defendant was again, basically an idiot.

She probably wanted a new, factory window. A friend of mine did this after her 13-year-old Toyota got sideswiped resulting in a dented door. She went through her insurance and demanded a factory door after her mechanic said he'd get her one from, of course, the junkyard. *sigh* we all know that even though we pay through the nose year after year for insurance that having the audacity to make a claim will get us dropped, which is what happened to her. 

Today's Momma suing on behalf of her giant daughter, for a return of rent, was disturbing. Mom wanted her daughter, a 25-year-old woman, to experience being on her own, so found the idiot def. - another person who can't pay her mortgage so brings in anonymous characters on CL to live with her - and moved daughter in with her. Daughter is a student taking courses in massage therapy and has an "anxiety condition" which apparently compels her to eat every cookie in sight and makes her unable to clean her own shit off the toilet seat or to throw out rotting food in her room. Def. landlady gave her notice to leave when she couldn't stand the mess and stink anymore.  Daughter has until the end of Nov to find a new place, but moves back in with Mommy in the middle of Oct so Mom wants the rent back . JM gives it to her.

I'm in a serious rut of not agreeing with the judges in these shows lately.  I can't BELIEVE she gave the last 2 weeks of Oct back to the Plaintiff?!  I feel like the whole 'special needs' and 'anxiety' were thrown out there to garner sympathy from the judge and it worked.  Those things shouldn't mean you're allowed to be a completely disgusting slob and invite all sorts of vermin into the house.

I'm not sure, but I think maybe she ordered the Nov rent returned because the landlord told plaintiff she could leave (as would we all)?  I believe JM took care to clarify that was so, IIRC.

I also don't know why she gave back the Oct rent since plaintiff lived there in Oct and as we know from these shows, if you're there one minute past midnight after the last day of the lease, you owe that month. Just because plaintiff would rather run home to Mommy than clean up her fetid bedroom and shitty bathroom was her choice.

I can't BELIEVE she gave the last 2 weeks of Oct back to the Plaintiff?!

It will only encourage that slob in her behaviour and pattern of not taking responsibility for her actions. And Mommy will also feel vindicated about supporting her baby for acting like a pig.

JM told her that a great way to control anxiety is to get down, scrub and clean; if the alleged anxiety swayed her, she was being inconsistent, once again, this time in a span of just a few minutes. I did not hear her justify the October rent return though.

Imagine you go for a nice massage and that frightening, vacant-eyed Godzilla comes lumbering in? Imagine the terror you would feel? Good lord.

Not to mention that her B.O. would probably clash with the lovely lavender scented oil burning in the room.

Well, after a month of not watching and doing recaps, I turned on TPC as I went in to make lunch. In zero time flat I remembered why I decided to take a break for a while. Good grief, sounds like MM is turning into JJ as she got impatient with the idjits in the first two cases. Only question I had from first case was why D was wearing a cat toy on her head while fighting over possession of a dog. After first few minutes of inconsistent testimony (lies) from both sides of the aisle, I put some okra in the air fryer and the fan drowned out rest of case. Not worth starting over, so not sure of the outcome - just as well,  as I'm not sure who was suing who for what. 2nd case was woman suing for everything to do with a hoopty purchase from stereotypical slimball used car lot. Quickly lost interest as MM tried to find out if P had a full time job. Last case, not sure WTH it was.... lunch was over and I turned off the tv when I got back to the remote in the living room. Tomorrow think I'll go back to watching reruns of Pit Bulls and Parolees

I thought it looked like she'd twisted a bunch of jumbo pipe cleaners and stuck them on her head.  She has diabetes and mental problems, but she had to elaborate on her testimony when asked what happened between her and the plaintiff, to get in that she goes to church. She helps a blind person go to church (even though she stands there lying to JM). Doesn't that make her a saint? She had to flee the state of CA to escape her persecutors, including the plaintiff beau - the plaintiff stole her dog but she did nothing about it for six months -  and her sister, and the whole racist, corrupt Oakland police force who seemed to be conspiring against her. Well, they were all corrupt and racist except for a Hispanic officer Rodriguez, who was very nice (I guess she did her homework on JM and decided to do a little ass-kissing along with the lying), but she demanded a female POC officer when she called the next time. JM did call her on all this but was laughing about it, which she wouldn't have been if a white person said she requested a white officer because all the others of a different race, colour or creed are racist, evil, and corrupt. 

Then another distasteful case. Plaintiff buys a car from the sleazy, Fugazi used car dealers. She lied about her working hours on her application for credit, but car dealers don't bother verifying it until after they let her drive off in the car. They also don't believe in keeping any records of sales at all and come here completely empty-handed. "Oh, we don't have that here!" Of course, they don't. JM should trust their words. Plaintiff wants her 2K deposit back. Defs claim they had all kinds of expenses in repossessing the car, but have no proof of any of that. JM awards plaintiff 1500$.  All parties were so shady I was surprised there was any judgment.

I think their problem is that whatever kinds of ugly braids they have had done with their hair are too tight and they interfere with their thinking processes. Or else they are naturally that idiotic and confused. At the end of the case, the plaintiff in the car case still did not understand what "full-time job" really means.

Too bad the car dealer was dumb enough not to bring the necessary documentation (assuming it exists); it might have decreased the award to the stupid plaintiff.

Okkkkk, sort of a repeat of yesterday. Turned on TPC and went to kitchen to fix lunch. Difference today was first case actually caught my attention enough that I rewound it and started watching. 

  1. Whose name's on the title!?!: p bought an ancient car knowing seller didn't have title, but was promised seller a title shortly. Remarkable thing is buyer telling us he would have been happy with the $450 1998 car if seller had ever produced the promised title. But, nooooo, 4-5 months after paying and taking delivery he still has no title, gets disgusted and leaves the car in seller's driveway. Oh, wait, dude left car in driveway so that seller couldn't get his other cars in/out of drive, ah, must have forgot to leave the keys. MM has some fun with this case, as D is terrible with things like dates, names, etc and who actually owned car at time of sale. Says he eventually got title - evidently it took so long because he was trying to get DMV to issue the title online instead of getting off his butt and going in person. Yeah, dude finally got title, but nooooo, didn't think to bring it with him to court. MM orders seller to return P's money, plus court costs, plus interest from time car was 'sold'
  2. guy wants to be paid for merchandise: Ps say they own/operate a custom blind/shutter business, installed blinds for D in new house, still owned $1600+. Total price something over 5 grand. D says inept P kept screwing up, ordering wrong size, damaging walls trying do install, and after 8 months enough was enough - oh, and P has a potty mouth and used foul language in the house. D files countersuit for $800 for damaged walls. Lots of back and forth, yeah install obviously wrong at beginning (install prevented windows from opening). Months go by, D says P eventually succeeded in installing most of the shutters, but there's still an issue with kitchen window. Yet another time when I wonder why a small business owner would come on national TV instead of bending over backwards to make customer happy. Not sure how often this business installs these 'plantation style' shutters, but TPC isn't best forum for drumming up future business. Anyway everyone seems to agree D paid for the correctly installed shutters/blinds, but when installers wanted back in to try - again - to install kitchen window shutter the homeowner was disgusted and wouldn't allow them to complete contract. Ah, but as MM goes through D's photos of complaints things start shifting and D starting to come off as one of those impossible to please customers. Yeah, that first install pic where window couldn't be opened was bad, but rest of these pix are just nit picking and making D look bad. Uh, yeah, totally normally for little things to go on a punch list for contractor to fix before final payment. You don't shut them out because they won't address all your concerns mid-job. Oh, and the intro talk of foul language is morphing to D not appreciating P's tone when she's had it up to here with the nitpicking and D's refusing to let hubby/installer finish the work. Not sure what exactly the $1600 represents, whether that's just the labor or the actual cost of shutter. Right now, waiting for commercial to end I'm thinking P should be paid minus labor for that 1 window, and give shutter that P ordered to D. Oh my, we're back to the foul language - guess it was more than just tone. When P realized he messed up and the window wouldn't open he got upset and dropped an 'F' bomb. Really, Lady?!? Anyway, her counterclaim is for damage because P's initial solution was to make it fit by trying to trim away part of the window frame. Good grief, P made a 4" cut the width of saw blade along window frame. As we've heard from Hot Bench's Judge DiMango, little toothpaste and paint will cover that. D claims it will cost $2400 to repair (part of that is that she says whole room will need to be repainted). Uh - no, not happening - any sympathy I had for D at beginning of case just went poof. I would give P everything they're asking for, but MM is nicer and subtracts what she thinks is reasonable ($300) for D to bring in someone to address all her little punch list complaints - oh and orders P to deliver the shutter he ordered and has that was never installed. P nets $1300 of the $1600 he asked for
  3. tenant wants rest of deposit: yawn, back to same old tired story. I zipped ahead and turns out landlord left evidence at home, so  has nothing to justify keeping what they kept. Tenant gets close to $1200.

Think I'll go out with Silly and check the yard - me to see if there are ripe blackberries I can pick/eat while my Sillycat checks bird feeder activity and munches some grass (he's such a good boy, helping keep the grass trimmed when I need to mow - course then he comes back inside and pukes in the middle of the carpet)

Ooh, not for me!  I'll grant the possibility of a padded counterclaim, but if someone started whacking into my BRAND NEW window frame or wall to accommodate their measurement F-Up??  They would have been shown the door, post haste.

Same here. She was certainly overinflating the cost of the repair. P was precipitous in using the saw on the frame without asking her first, but it did not justifiy the outrageous amount she was asking. Of course at that point he had irrevocably scrambled her delicate sensibility by dropping the F-bomb; not the most professional behaviour, but nothing to make such a fuss about.

She was obviously one of those impossible to please customers with unrealistic expectations, who make it a habit of arbitrarily deciding at any moment to put a stop to the work and forbid the contractor to try and correct small problems. Am I mistaken in thinking that most of those are women in the renovations/construction cases we see on these shows?

If you look up "Pathetic scumbag/tiny little loser con artist" you'd see both the def's pictures. He's such a loser he peddles his 20+-year-old Corolla to the plaintiff, knowing full well he didn't have the title to the thing. Amazingly, the car is fine. Go, Toyota! The kid wants his money back because he can't register the car for which he paid 450$. Slimy, ugly def in a fancy shirt gives cringe-worthy excuses - "I tried to do it online for months (sure, you did) it was registered to Uber(??)... I have a heart condition, oh poor me!... I told him I'd pay him" and his sleazebag, lowlife, desperate girlfriend (amazing how water always finds its own level) backs him up.  But yes, he's a stand-up guy and got the title after maybe 8 months. Where is it? Well, at home naturally.  Gee, is it possible he didn't really have it? JM gave him a pretty good reaming, but not enough. She did enjoy hearing how the plaintiff left the thing at def's house - those scumbags turned off all their lights when he rang their doorbell -  blocking their driveway. That plaintiff's dad was fine with his buddy, the spineless, pin-headed def, ripping off and screwing over his kid was disturbing.

I found it kind of shocking that the plaintiff, in the blind business for 24 years, started sawing away at the window frames to make his blinds fit. Maybe it's time for Mom and Pop to retire? But, the defs simply ignoring the messages because "I didn't like her tone" escalated this to a new level. These days, it seems people feel that if they are offended by a "tone" of an email, voice mail or text, they can just ignore the whole contract thing?  And then, naturally, the def does have the paid bills for correcting the work, but she doesn't have them WITH HER. Of course not. It never occurred to her to bring evidence about the very thing for which she's being sued. I think we all know that when we hear this, it's because there is no evidence and the litigant is a liar who thinks JM is so stupid she'll fall for this trite garbage. "Trust me. I'm a Christian. I go to church! Look at my cross! I never lie!"

I liked how the landlord got caught in a great big money-grubbing lie by saying the plaintiff damaged the garage door when it was already like that before he even moved in so who would believe anything else she said?  She and her... whatever he is, the bargain-bin Antonio Banderas - looked like utter fools as she chuckles while stating that yes, of course, she has bills that show what she paid to fix plaintiff's damages, but well - *chuckle hee hee* - she never thought to bring them with her. So cute. But who would bring evidence?  How a judge can maintain patience while listening to this utter BS is amazing, but I guess they've heard it all.

I grant you that she was a silly histrionic bitch that was trying for a ka-ching moment from MM.  

My issue was the oh so basic screw up in measuring.  You're in the blind/shutter game how many years???   When the first room is wrong, we revisit our game plan.  If the first I know of trouble is the sound of a saw, I am concerned.   

My dogs and I are going to bugger up those new pristine walls soon enough.  I'm not paying a sub $5k to help.
