Evil Can Be Bought
I learned that someone truly evil is difficult to defeat in life or in a court of law. Such a person does not worry about playing fair, doing the right thing, or looking bad in the eyes of those who know the truth. A truly evil person, especially one that is also a sociopath, will do things that astound normal, decent human beings. We have been dealing with a person like this, and yesterday we decided that we would accept a less-than-equitable settlement in our case against him. Evil can be bought, and we decided to pay the price in order to rid ourselves of this man's impact on our daily lives.
First lessen learned: make people hate you so strongly that they recoil at the sight of your face or the sound of your voice and they will pay you to go away if that's the only way they can find relief.
Second lesson learned: some attorneys cannot be trusted to do the job for which they charge a tidy sum. In the aftermath of ridding ourselves of Mr. Evil, we now have to file an official grievance with the State Board against an attorney we were forced to fire.
OK, I have that off my chest and promise not to bring it up again...just felt like venting for the record.
