Yesterday afternoon, my cousin and I took my stove back. We took the stove back with permission from him, after he read my post yesterday, and after I presented him with a statement by Jill from Spencer. We notified the Charleston police and did everything the proper way.
Never walk away. Never let it go. That is what bullies want you to do. Stand up. Do it right, in broad daylight, and do not be afraid.
However! I did have this whole brief imaginary foray into–I could sign up for the Judge Judy show! I love Judge Judy! I love Judge Judy because she does what’s right and she’s no-nonsense. She puts the bad guys in their place, and no one, yes no one, gets over on her. I’ll never be like Judge Judy, but I like to watch her and imagine being like that. It would have been fun to go on the show with such an open-and-shut case. I’d have brought Jill as my witness. Jill and I would have had so much fun flying to L.A. for the taping. We would have stayed in a nice hotel and eaten out! This case was so easy, it would be one of those where the plaintiff and their witness really didn’t have to say anything. Judy would play with the defendant for a few minutes to make the whole thing worth her while, then eviscerate him and slam the gavel down. Then Jill and I would have had time for lunch before our flight back!
Jill! We’ll always have L.A.! (In our dreams.)
P.S. Thank you again to Jill for donating the stove for the studio, and for standing up for her donation when the chips were down. And thank you, to all of you, for your support. It means so much to me.
