Tossed Salad Friday

~~At a seminar, I learned about a lawsuit over a $900 window guard for a NYC co-op. One unit owner didn’t want to pay, but neither did the co-op board. Years of litigation later, the owner spent $30,000 and the Board spent $73,000 to decide who would pay for the $900 guard. There’s something to be said for standing on principle, but where’s the pride in being a bunch of jackasses too entrenched to back down?

~~Now that I think about it, how come I never attract the kind of stupidly stubborn clients who’ll pay me $73,000 (or even $30,000) just to bully & badger an adversary? I know I wouldn’t be happy caught up in the midst of the sturm und drang, but my bank account would gladly welcome the transfusion!

~~I overheard a conversation at the Bar Association that would be comical if it wasn’t so commonplace. “Is [a colleague] still tending bar on the weekends?” “Yes. He complains his mat[trimonial] clients are all reconciling because they can’t afford to get divorced.”

~~Maybe Kim Kardashian should share some of the reported (but disputed) $18 million she earned from her wedding with penniless people trapped in loveless marriages. They could get divorced, divorce lawyers could stop tending bar, and the world would be a happier place.
