Day 25: We Won! kind of

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:

  1. He now can’t send our names to the collection agency for $1237.81 and ruin my credit rating.
  2. He is not getting a single additional penny out of us.
  3. 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

  1. It’s always nice when good, hard-working people are actually able to come out ahead…good show, Moneypenny, good show.

  2. I was just listening to the Wisconsin vs. Purdue game at work. Olando Tucker gave a guy an elbow to the face and was called for a foul. The color commentator on WIBA said, “Wow, that looked like Olando Tucker gave him the people’s elbow from the top rope.” Sweet.
