Small victory from CWC?

After the first round the WI crashed and burned, we did not make as much money from the tournament as we hoped, the stands at most of the matches werent exactly full to the capacity, a high profile murder took place on our home soil and the capabilities of the local police force is being questioned by the international community.


For the past two Saturday afternoons on my way to the UWI Student's Union, ive seen kids practicing Cricket. This is the first time seeing that, having passed that exact spot numerous times for the past 9 years.

Ive been living at my apt for almost 4 years now, and yesterday was the first time I saw kids set up stumps and playing cricket with a tennis ball.

....A small victory?

Sad state of affairs?

For the first in a long time, im actually enjoying my job. And I strongly suspect it is primarily because it takes my mind off my other job.

You know when you jus BAD MIND??!!!!!!!!

Excerpts from the above articles:

" A customer got so steamed when a dry cleaner lost his trousers that he sued for $65 million (U.S.). Two years later, he is still pressing his suit."

According to court documents, the problem began in May 2005 when Pearson became a judge and brought several suits for alterations to Custom Cleaners in Washington. A pair of pants from one suit was missing when he requested it two days later.

Pearson asked the cleaners for the full price of the suit: more than $1,000.

But a week later, the owners said the pants had been found and refused to pay. Pearson said those were not his pants and decided to sue.

Manning said the cleaners have made three settlement offers to Pearson: $3,000, then $4,600, then $12,000.

But Pearson was not satisfied and expanded his calculations beyond one pair of pants."

"He reached the figure of $US67,292,000, citing Washington's consumer protection law, which provides for damages of $1500 per violation per day. Judge Pearson started multiplying: 12 violations over 1200 days, times three defendants (the Chungs and their son), as well as other claims.

These include $US15,000 to rent a car every weekend for 10 years to drive to a cleaner in another area because he no longer wanted to use his local dry cleaner. He also seeks $US500,000 in emotional damages and $US542,000 in legal fees, although he is representing himself."

Things like this make you go WTF???

Emotional damages for losing a pair of pants?? Legal fees even though he's representing himself, is that even allowed??? And all this isnt even for a large corporation, is jus 2 chiney ppl a do a likkle ting.

Bwoy when u jus bad mind....
