just the mere fact that she has affected your life for 5 days with this matter, she is already "winning".
Define 'affected' .... you make it sound as if she's crying in her coffee and unable to cope with her everyday living. I don't see this as a "win" or "loose" issue at this point - more of a "right" and "wrong". Since when is standing up for yourself and not allowing yourself to be treated as if you were something on the bottom of someone's high heel considered a waste of time.
Funny thing is this isn't even 'going' to court yet - this lady has to take time away from her 'impotent' people and file the case yet.
So? Let her, but damned if she should be rewarded just for waving her arms and skirt all while chanting her crazy talk! Maybe if enough people stood up for our rights, people such as this would think twice before treating someone else like this. It's the 'Don't disturb my back yard' attitude that allows people to continue acting in what I consider an abusive manner.
When I say "affected", I do not imply that she is crying in her coffee. Affected as in affecting her everyday life. The fact that she is having to deal with it, talk about it, live it daily. That is "affected". As far as "winning", I put that in quotes because this is what was used in a previous post about the lady "winning" by paying the lady off. I'm not saying it is a win or lose situation. What I meant by the last comment is that sometimes, people want to cause problems. That is their whole point and this could be this lady's point. Just to cause problems. One person is not going to change the person she is and has always been. And, I'm not saying do not stand up for your rights. We all have rights. And, I'm sure she felt she had the right to eat a $500 cake and she didn't. I'm not on the other side. I am on her side. I'm sorry. But I think you misinterpreted my post.
