Maybe they're mad that you keep calling them Perdenales instead of Pedernales.

Perdenales is the dumbfuck country Texan way of saying it.

It's the way all the locals pronounce it... just like we have weird pronunciations for Manchaca, Guadalupe, Koenig, and Burnet.

Yeah, sure you have. "I'm gonna sue you", "oh my gosh sir, ok we'll give you whatever you want! Just make sure you don't sue us!" rolleyes.gif The first four years of my career was spent writing software for a customer service company. So "someone like me" would be someone who's listened to far more customer service calls than I'd ever care to listen to again (I developed their call recording system). In all that time I worked there we had zero lawsuits from anyone. 999 out of 1000 it's just the customer not understanding what happened and upset by it and it's a knee jerk reaction empty threat. Threatening to sue doesn't get any more done than cussing out the agent.

Glad you can't read... nice seeing you back man.... any big moves where you have no internet coming up again?

"im gonna sue you" isn't what i said, but thanks, glad you've listen to people calling in.

The Guadalupe thing annoys the hell out of me having grown up in a predominately Hispanic city.

I wasn't quoting you I was giving a sarcastic example of what some dipshit would sound like calling in threatening to sue someone if they didn't wipe their ass for them. But the other Chuck pretty much showed how you were wrong anyways so now you just look twice as dumb.

Explaining that there would be a law suit if they don't give money back is quite different than the Impala "omg im going to sue you"

The suit is the stick in chooooks example

Its ok though, i know its hard to understand that when there is a valid suit its ok to explain that they need to consider what you are saying or else face possible suit.

It legally works but it costs too much for yourself and really pisses off people, unless you are a lawyer yourself.

No I don't mean that a lawsuit doesn't work. I mean threatening one doesn't work. They know that 9999 times out of 10000 it's just a bluff.

Case in point let's ask chicken how many people he's actually sued, vs how many he's threatened to sue.

You realize that 98% of all suites are settled and never go to court right? Why do you think that is? Its because one (or both) know that a case will either be a loss for one or BOTH of them, thus they settle (almost always) to the person with better case. You can politely tell someone that you have clearly been cheated and you don't want to Sue but if they reasonably look at the situation they would lose a suit if i HAVE to file one. Usually the other side (if you explain instead of saying "omg im gonna sue you") will do the right thing to prevent having someone from filing suit. There is a right way and wrong way. Im not arguing that saying "omg ima sue you" will work, im saying that if you explain to them that you WILL sue if you have to, and that its in their best interest to hear you out and listen, you can get them to do the right thing.

Thats why i told him to talk to someone high up and EXPLAIN. I know im a lawyer in training, but im also not a "omg ima sue" type of guy. But i'll be damned if its not an option with 500 dollars, and you can explain that to a service person and they'll behave accordingly if you do it correctly. I know the internets isn't best way to convey thoughts, but give me a break guys.
