I am pleased to announce that I picked up a Certified Letter from the Post Office this morning from Steve Misrack. Inside was a three or so sentence letter and a check for $186.18. He considers the matter closed.
[soon to be a picture of my triumphant check]
However, with every win comes a loss, as he made the check out to “Zach + Erin Moneypenny AND Michael Kristopeit”. As those who have dealt with banks can attest to, I am going to have one pain in the ass of a time trying to deposit this goddamned thing. I’m sure Steve is laughing in a corner somewhere about how he screwed us over, Vince McMahon-style. I think we’ll find a way to cash the thing eventually, but in the meantime I’m glad for the following reasons:
- He now can’t send our names to the collection agency for $1237.81 and ruin my credit rating.
- He is not getting a single additional penny out of us.
- We actually get to see some of our money returned to us.
The only bad thing is I wish I could have been in court to see him get reamed by a judge for dicking us over so badly. Eh, you take what you can get. I consider this equal to a $1423.99 swing in poker or craps, and you can’t get much better than a roughly $1500 gambling swing in your favor.
An additional benefit is that I am now quite knowledgable about California Tenant/Landlord Law, so come to me with your questions on procedure when you get dicked out of YOUR security deposit.
–whazz on, and on and on and on
