I'm Rich, Too!


Mo posted something on his blog that reminded me of something similar. Months ago, we received a letter telling us we were part of a class action lawsuit involving some marketing thing we had been involved with several years ago. I didn't think much about it and threw the papers away.

A few weeks later, I received yet another letter about a class action lawsuit involving yet another marketing group we had tried. Again, it was so long ago, I tossed this letter, too.

A couple of weeks ago, within a day or two of each other, we received checks for our portion of the lawsuits. I anxiously looked at the check, thinking we'd be rolling in clover - bingo! $5.00! The second check was for $11.00. So, Vegas, here we come!!! Might even be able to help with the grandkids education...
Sheeesh!

I'll take $5! That's enough to buy chocolate!

The only ones rolling in clover at the end of the day, are the lawyers! They get 15%-25% of the settlement. You get $5-$11.

Do ya just love them attorneys?

Hope you didn't spend all that money in one place!...SandyB :-)

Well, let's see, even if my math is lousy (which it is!) that's $16 and quite a bigger windfall than Mo got!

Sad thing is, I could definitely use $16 at this point in time ... maybe I need a couple class action lawsuits myself!

Yup, I'd take your $16 over Mo's $1.10 any day.

I could have myself a very nice lunch with that.

*grin*
