Thanks For Waiting

I'm back. Couldn't stay away. With a great sense of relief, I can say that Jethro's credit has been spared from irrecoverable damage.

I spoke to the perpetrator of the identity theft, and threatened to nail his balls to the wall if he didn't come up with the money he owed us. I told him if he didn't pay up I was going to the ethics board of the college and was going to have him expelled. I said I didn't care what he had to sell and he had the gall to interrupt me and tell me he had nothing to sell. I told him he could sell his ass on Montrose (Houston natives will know what I'm talking about), but he better find a way. I told him that at the point I was at, I'd pay off the debt myself for the pure malicious joy of garnishing his wages when he's a minimum wage earning, polyesther uniformed order taker. That and the joy of seeing three years of his life flushed down the shitter.

It's not true of course. I would rather he pay off the money and never have to speak to him again, but I think I was pretty convincing. He now returns Jethro's calls with an impressive promptness. It's not over, but the worst of it is. I can rest easier knowing that Jethro's credit is ok.

More on Rome later, which has been the most fun (for me) of anything I've written to date.

New Topic

Maddox has something funny to say about U2's latest.

Here's what I got out of that site - Maddox hates U2.

Tommy - I don't want to talk too much about it. It involved some stupid mistakes on mine and Jethro's part, and extreme dishonesty from someone we'd once considered a friend.

Gooch - Really? You don't say. Bono has pissed me off lately, so it amused the hell out of me.

Actually, even as a mild U2 fan I have to admit the bit about the Nascar glasses, particularly the side-riff on Nascar fans in general, was pretty hysterical.

I know, right? I still think Bono is a twat, but that bit was funny too.

Zelda... I'm not a Houston native, but I know exactly what you're talking about! I've been on that street (there's a Mexican restaurant over there that was yummy). At least, there used to be. LoL. I miss Houston sometimes.

Lisa - A Mexican restaurant in Houston? Get out of town! Pretty safe bet there. There's about 76 Mexican restaurants on Montrose alone and about 682,000,000 in the greater houston area. You've proven nothing.

Just teasing.

I would have to assume that all the ones on Montrose are in flamboyant colors? LoL

Kat - Yes, it does suck the big fat one.

Lisa - flamboyant rainbow colors to be exact.

Lisa must be thinking of Felix's - right in the heart of Montrose and one of the best Mexican Restaurants in the area. And yes, very colorful.

I hope you scared the piss out of that little weasel. He needs to be your servant - clean your house, wash your laundry, scrub your toliet, etc...until he can earn enough from his other job to pay you back.

Oh. I'm so glad you guys are back. I'm also glad things have worked out somewhat.

I was so worried. I thought something had gone awry with your bills, or budget, or something with the girls. That's why I offered to help. *sniffle*

For some reason, I keep thinking of a yellow building beside it. But in order to find out, I'd have to contact the ex or his best friend (of which I'm doing neither). LoL
