I am not a big fan of pain, never have been.
Almost bordering on pussy at times, always something to be avoided.
So here I sit with two black eyes.
Karma, you rotten giggling bitch.
Now, you would think that my vile mouth would be the culprit here.
How it happened was so random it almost doesn’t matter.
Could have happened in nine or ten different ways.
I refuse to blame judo, despite the fact that it happened during a judo workshop.
There was some really impressive national competitors visiting and I got thrown in a beautiful Ippon Seo Nage.
And, as I lay there on my back, the kid who threw me got overbalanced from the throw and rolled over me.
And the back of his head slammed back into my nose with a serious crunch.
And what followed was about 15 minutes of bleeding like a stuck pig and muffled cursing.
I had about 4 people ask me if I intended to sue the gym.
I am appalled by this.
Its judo, injuries happen.
I could have gotten the same injury jockeying for position at a drinking fountain.
People want to sue too much.
I am trying not to throw too much hate at the lawyers, but it is tough not to.
They are so hate-able its not even funny.
Even lawyers hate lawyers.
You would think there would be some sort of esprit de corps.
I took an informal poll of the four lawyers I happen to know.
And all four, when posed with the question, “Do you like other lawyers?”
I am paraphrasing here, but all four said “Fuck em!”.
One of the lawyers, a man I went to grade school with and kind of consider family, but would serious not buy an apple from or leave my kids around, went on at great lengths to explain what scumbags lawyers are.
I find it ironic that a commercial for a serious ambulance chaser type lawyer was just on tv.
His big catch phrase is “I’ll fight for you!” but his clientele have a serious low-rent feel to them.
Makes you wonder how sad his court battles are.
The show Law and Order it ain’t.
I can only imagine what sort of battles are taking place.
Phony slip and falls, fake whiplash, and discrimination cases.
I was once the hiring manager of a company, and one morning I got a call from the director of HR. She said there was a midget making the rounds to companies, and applying for work.
He only applies for jobs he is completely unsuited for.
If he gets the job, he doesn’t show up.
If he doesn’t get the job, he sue for discrimination.
Its a scam.
I once had the guy pointed out to me by the director of HR.
He was wearing a beautiful suit.
He could afford it, he made a nice living shaking down businesses for cash.
And his lawyer will fight for him, too.
