I agree Bob, and I truly hope the guy would disappoint the doubters and turn out to be a gentleman and an angel!
John, you are a lot more submissive in this matter than I would be. Instead of rationalizing this man's contempt, I would tend to respond in kind. I would certainly work to minimize my losses, but there is no sympathy in my heart for human parasites like him.Originally posted by JRB:
[QB] ...You're in a wheelchair, your body is twisted and damaged, you're losing your ability to speak, and who knows what else is wrong, would you be completely sane and compassionate toward what you perceive as an insult to your existence?...
The question of "Who got screwed the worst in this life" is not a legitimate measure of your financial responsibility to this man.Who got screwed the worst in this life, me and my business or the lawyer who is suing me?
It seems you will get your store as compliant as he demands under law. Your "hope it is good enough" may be irrelevent; it might be unwise to expect any cooperation.I'll get my store as compliant as I can, and then hope it is good enough.

... One thing I should pass on to everyone is that wherever you have stairs or bathrooms, put a sign up that reads, " Employees Only, beyond this point." Hang this across the bottom of the stairways on a rope, this includes stairways in the back of your shop. Attach it to the walls beside bathrooms. Never tell anyone, no matter how well you know them, that they can use your bathroom...
Hey Michael, I think his use of "shyster" was okay because he feels that he is one, that is okay. I just think referring to somebody as a "black broad" is disrespectful. I don't know man, it just put my teeth on edge.Originally posted by Mike LeCompte CPF:
