Given the I’m not fat I’m just so freaking sexy it overflows vintage shirt Furthermore, I will do this choice, I always want to do right by my kids, no matter how long ago I taught them. I smiled at the sales guy and my former student and tried to talk them down. Not a chance, I was told. So I stood up, thanked them, and said I needed to go crunch some numbers to see if I could work the new price into my budget. I promised to give them a call in a couple of hours. As I prepared to pull out of the driveway at the Nissan dealership, I hit redial on my cell phone. the sales guy I’ve been dealing with that the Chevy dealer had called me at 9:00 that morning, making one last push to sell me that Malibu. Now, at 10:30, I was calling him to tell him that I would be at his dealership in 15 minutes, ready to do the deal on the Malibu. I absolutely love that car for the 4 years I owned it until I was rear-ended (while I was at a dead stop) by a pickup truck at a stoplight and shoved into the pickup truck in front of me. I bought another one from the same sales guy at the same dealership. I fully anticipate buying my next one from him, whatever that might be. I’ve also sent five friends to him who have bought cars from him. A couple of days later, I got a call from a lawyer at the state capitol. He demanded to know who my lawyer was. I told him I was representing myself. He started basically threatening me. He said there was no way I could win, and that the court would assess me attorney’s fees for the school. It would cost me thousands of dollars. I told him I wouldn’t withdraw the suit. He told me to think about it, and I told him I didn’t need to. The court date came around. The lawyer came into the courthouse about the same time I did. He walked into the courtroom first, and said, “Good morning, your honor.” The judge said hello and asked him his name. I came in right after him, looked up at the judge, and said, “Hi, Jim.” The judge looked up and said, “Oh, hi, Eric.” I had made it a point to be able to see the attorney’s face when this was spoken. His chin dropped an inch or so and his mouth gaped open a bit. I was valedictorian of our class and was never inducted into the society. In my case, they were correct, and I had no problem accepting their decision.
