Hi KW,

I agree…these are some good ones. I think the word that sums it all up is “lawsuits.” The toner one is good!

Hope you are well.


Paula - doesn’t it make you wish you were an attorney??? Just think - you get a third of the award AND THAT IS JUST THE AMOUNT YOU GET FOR TAKING THE CASE! Then of course all the “fees” “incurred” - every phone call, letter, stamp, the secretaries time, part of the utilities, rent and cam charges - probably the attorney’s lunches, gas, tolls and parking, his new shirt and suit to go to court, the new shoes, golf clubs, - you know what I mean!


You hit the nail on the head. I didn’t want to mention attorney’s in the event any belong to this site. Hmm, has anyone tried to sue Ron? Then we’d know. LOL

Have you noticed how the phone books are getting thicker and thicker with attorney ads? It’s pretty sad when you have to be careful of everything that you do for fear of being sued. Advertisements are posted EVERYWHERE encouraging people to sue. And, you’re right, the client gets a smidgeon while the attorney takes the lions share.

It’s sad because we all pay the price from increased insurance rates (in all respects) to increases in medical costs, cosummeables, etc. because of frivilous lawsuits.

Speaking of insurance carriers, that’s another beef of mine. Let’s see, your insurance rates are being increased because of the multitude of losses in your state or the country. Or, because statistics show ya-da, ya-da, ya-da. What!? I think it’s more like, "we only made $10 million last year instead of $10.5 million. Enough of that, I could go on and on.

Have a great day! Paula

Paula - don’t get ME started on insurance - I can write a book on insurance - from workers comp to third party and the gray areas for homeowners! I have posted quite a bit on a couple sites - insurance companies have absolutely nobody regulating what they do - they have the deep pockets and they pay off the politicians so that they will turn the other cheek. There is a site that tells how much each insurance company has donated to the political parties - and yet theyare still making a profit! The amounts are astronomical! And there is no call for it. If they would just pay those that have legitimate claims and get it over with - things would be better. No - they pay all these “defense w-h-o-r-e-s” to lie and cheat and make up stories so that you don’t get a cent! I’ll hush - I get quite VILE when I start to talk about it! But I have gone after them - AND I AM NOT DONE! So all you DW’s out there - I’m going to get you! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
