Class Action Settlement

Letter came today addressed to the Missus.  I noticed the return address read "ATTM Settlement."
"Here," I said as I handed it to her.  "Your settlement check from AT &T.  Probably a dime.  Anyway, whatever it is, it cost them more to cut the check and process it than it is for."

She opened the envelope which revealed a neat letter in very. fine. print and a check attached.  "It is for ten cents," she said.

Of course I burst into laughter.  How could I have known?  Well, I am not prescient but one is always aware that in situations like this the only winners are the attorneys.

Yet of course evil-doers, be the behavior intentional or not, must be punished.

And again, "Bwaahahaha!"

That is funny...

Grace, right. If class-action suits were not primarily for the benefit of lawyers, lawyers wouldn't flood the airwaves with advertisements for such.

Oh, that is funny!

We have a bunch of lawsuits going in our village over contaminated drinking water. Of course, the people that I know are filing suit are scammers--but it is too expensive to prove that in court, so they will be getting a settlement.

My neighbor is one of those people and she is counting on re-doing her kitchen with the windfall she anticipates. I have a feeling that after the lawyers are through, she will be lucky to get a can of paint.

We will see.
