Stupid old people shitting all over the place by Samuel Findlekeck - Thu, 05 Nov 2015 21:32:17 EST ID:zCCwg5JP No.44796 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Is there anything that can legally be done to someone for shitting all over the floor in a public bathroom?
I work in fast food and today some old lady shit all over the place. It was smeared all over the seat, the underside of the bowl, and all over the floor around the toilet. I got stuck cleaning it up. I initially flat out refused but was threatened with a write up so I just grabbed the mop and cleaned the whole thing up with that.

Anyway, this isn't even the first time that lady's done it. I don't know if it's because she's old and doesn't know wtf she's doing or what. She goes in with her daughter though, I don't think she drives herself.
This has gotta be illegal right? I mean you're basically creating a giant biohazard.
I'm just a grunt, not a manager or anything. This is in Oregon by the way.

By that last line "she goes in with her daughter" I mean she comes into the store with her daughter but goes into the bathroom by herself. They're just single person bathrooms with the sliding locks that say "occupied" on the outside.


License reinstated, DUI charges dropped? by Matilda Gerringwock - Mon, 26 Oct 2015 21:50:47 EST ID:WCr+90zG No.44763 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So /law/ today I got a a letter from the DMV(CA) that the action that has been taken against my license(being suspended) due to the DUI charge I got a couple months ago has been set aside. In other words the charge was BS and my license is still valid.

Combine this with the fact that after i missed my arraignment date, I called warrants division to confirm I had a bench warrant out for a failure to appear, but i didn't... Which now would seem to make sense if I wasn't on the docket because the DA dropped the charges, with this letter i received today being the clue for me to connect the dots.

I won't know till i call warrants again tommorow, but considering I had 0 alcohol in me, passed every test and the only thing in my blood when they took it being THC metabolites(this is california remember), I'm willing to bet the DA dropped the charges.

So hooray for me, but know celebrating till i know for sure.

What do you think /law/?

They may not be pursuing charges, but your license being suspended is probably legit. The dmv doesn't care what the prosecutors do, it's a different process

Basically my ex-gf was working at a dog grooming place for a few months. To make this short she went to the hospital and received a 3 day doctors/nurses note. Well comes that 3 days and her employer tried telling her there's "two" types of doctors and nurses notes. Uh, no. A nurse note is the same as a doctor. THEN she requested her medical references to come to work so she knew what had happened...under law, if you're not a doctor you have no use for that information.

Now, here's the twist...I found out from my neighbor last night they didn't send her final partial payment because I called her work for her to speak up to her boss which got her fired. That's fine, never said anything threatening or harassing just "I got off the phone with Swedish medical center and they told me there's no such thing as two different types of notes." Which lead to her getting nasty asking if I ever had a job? Uh, yes was my response but I've never had to work for anyone like you. So, now that she has declined a doctors note and asked for personal medical information to return to work...she supposedly decided not to give my EX her final partial check because she was upset WITH ME! And you know how I found this out? My neighbor, meaning she's going around telling people. They "laughed" at the fact she was gone not even knowing why she was in the hospital. Now, i'm waiting for to call to confirm that this is true but no one makes that up especially when we had been waiting on a small check. It's not about the money but making sure this lady gets the punishment she deserves if this is true. If it is should I call the police for not paying her or should I go through a lawyer? I'm 24 now and have never experienced abuse like this in my life. It's a small dog grooming business so they really don't have the money to afford a lawsuit. Am I crazy or do I have a solid case if this whole non-payment is confirmed because she was "angry at me" because I spoke up to her boss saying she won't be working there anymore. Money has never been an issue so loosing her job was no issue but to not pay her because she's upset with me? And remember, T…

A few months ago i started putting payments toward a truck off of craigslist. The meeting went fine and i have signed receipts for payments so far. Last week, however, i was in an accident that left me without wheels or income. After calling to explain that the sale has to be cancelled, he tells me he doesnt have my money, and that id have to wait till he resold the truck to get it. Im at a bit of a loss as to what i should do about this.

My grandmother was just diagnosed with breast cancer. We were talking about whether or not she'll be able to afford treatment (United States of course) and she was talking about just charging it to her credit cards. If she dies with a bunch of debt, of any sort, would her family be responsible for any of it? No one has agreed to be a guarantor of her credit cards or anything of course, but I don't know if they would take her house or car or anything to pay for it. I feel gross just thinking about this but it's something that would be good to know.

I need legal help.

Back in the beginning of January, I was experiencing abdominal pains on my lower right side just above my hip.

Gradually, over 3 days, the pain grew worse and more unbearable. I went to my doctor, and his immediate concern was appendicitis. He had a little poke around my belly to come to this conclusion.

He referred me immediately to the hospital, and he wrote me a note that was meant to 'get me straight in'. I got to the hospital and had to wait seven hours and two different doctors prodding my belly before being put in a room for the night where they told me I wouldn't have my surgery until the morning.

Drugged up through the night, I awoke to the surgical team looking at me and discussing procedural jargon. They took me to the prep room for anasthaesia, and I was put under promptly. Surgery 'went without a hitch' they said.

I was out the next day and trying to get back on my feet with no resistance from the hospital staff other than being unable to find any of my fucking paperwork. I was told 2 weeks to recover would be plenty.

It's now been almost 8 weeks, and not only am I getting the same pains that I went to the hospital for in my lower right abdomen, but I'm also getting pains and 'cramps' from the entry point of the surgery (keyhole surgery).

I haven't been able to be on my feet for more than two or three hours at a time, and as such, I haven't been able to get to work. I'm still not fully healed, but I'm going to try to go to work today. I should also mention that my digestive system has been royally FUCKED since the operation.

Short answer yes. Some areas have the right to block the (semi) open sale (counties that voted against legalization) of marijuana, but you will be able to find it in the metropolitan areas. You can go into (most) medical dispensaries, but you can only purchase bud, no concentrates or other goodies, and generally at a marked up price. No public consumption (technically this includes infused food products as well) and federal areas (national forests/parks, airport, etc.) are still off limits. Sorry if I'm missing anything.

Recently I was caught in Colorado with a few illegals, and I wanted to see if anyone could shed some light on whether or not I could be extradited from Texas for the crimes committed in Colorado. (Austin, Texas specifically)

I am being charged with:
  • Possession of a stolen firearm
  • 19 Counts of Schedule 1 Substances (MOSTLY personal, but there were a few counts that could be considered a higher amount other than personal use - but I was only charged with possession)
  • DUI
  • No Insurance
  • No License (on person)

  • If I don't do anything other than stay in Texas, what will happen?
  • What's the likelyhood of even being arrested in Texas for the warrant in Colorado?
  • What is the likelyhood of of being extradited in Texas if I were to be arrested in Texas for having warrants in Colorado?

  • Would using my brothers ID be a bad idea to get around having to tell police my real name on the off-chance of having to identify myself? Obviously it would add on charges if I were to be caught... BUT, my brother DOES look like my and he's only 3 years younger than me and lives in a nearby city. So knowing that he is around the same age and looks alot like me, what are the chances the cops would call my bluff?

You can be charged with all of them, it's likely they will have to merge however. The basic way to think of it is if the essential facts that have to be proven for the individual charges are the same they are merged as a matter of law.

Hey, guys. I really, really fucked up.

I live in Suffolk County, New York. I had a friend, let's call him M. I've known him since High School. He had always been there to help me out with shit, whether it was financially or helping me move my shit to a different apartment, or giving me a ride . . etc etc. Just overall good friend stuff.

About four months ago, I trusted him too much. I gave him my SSN because he didn't have enough money to buy an engagement ring (he had gotten himself into a real bad auto wreck. I saw damage first hand so it wasn't a lie) and he had to pay for the repairs because he wasn't an insured driver (he lost control of the car he was borrowing from his brother because HIS car was fucked up). Whatever, I was drinking at the time he had asked me, so for the ring, although it sounded strange to me, I gave him my SSN.

Please, I know how fucking retarded it was, I know I'm a goddamn idiot for trusting somebody I thought I considered an older brother because we've been friends for years. I'm at my wit's end. I feel like such a fucking fool for this, I want to jump off a goddamn bridge. I know it'll probably be difficult to refrain from doing it, but please, don't go on about how stupid I am because I'm 100% aware of it already.

So, he buys two rings, not one. I had no idea (at the time) that a line of credit would be opened, I thought it was like a co-signer kind of thing. I don't know much about credit at all because I pay for everything out of pocket — my car bills, my student tuition, so on and so forth. I abhor the idea of loans/credit. Not only that, but about two weeks later, he buys about FOUR FUCKING other rings. Wait, there's more: about two weeks after the time that I had given him my SSN, somebody starts opening a bunch of lines of credit from various credit companies and banks under my name.

Other than Kay Jeweler's, everything is closed out. The only thing I have to worry about is Kay Jeweler's. But they don't want to work with me. The fraud department doesn't believe that I didn't buy the other rings because I signed for the first two (I thought he had bought one, and signed for the package because it was delivered to my house. Didn't open it because I trusted him. Once again, my fault.), and their piss-poor records show that my name is "associated" with M's address. They tell me that the police has to continue with this investigation.

Fine. I go to the police station, and they tell me I need to go to a civil court because I had initially given him my SSN. The desk officer not only told me that I'm committing fraud myself because he says "from the views of the police department" I gave him authority to open up EVERY line of credit and that I'd close it so I don't have to pay, but they aren't going to investigate the 3+ non-Kay Jeweler's accounts opened because they think I'm conspiring with M.

Now, here's the thing: I have written proof, a facebook chatlog, that he didn't tell me a line of credit was going to be opened up. I also have, in that same chat log, him admitting that he bought more rings without my authorization.

I grew up in a really small conservative town.

My entire life, they have been trying to change this racist school mascot. When I was in highschool, there was 1 native american student. He got fucked with so hard that he filed a lawsuit against the school (obviously with the help of many lawyers and different groups)

Also, there was a girl who got raped by a football player in my town, and there was over 500 people on a facebook group that were in support of him, with people calling the girl a filthy whore and shit.

In my state theres been a complete conservative takeover of politics and its completely destroying our state. Money is being taken away from the education system left and right. There is a very clear war on the average working class person and the media spins nothing but hateful ass bias that just creates social issues and segregation.

I am completely ashamed of where I'm from and I'm completely ashamed how everyone here is just a drunk ass slob who listens to whatever they hear in the media. People my age are against themselves demanding equal rights in the workplace. Its really sick and sad and I see us going nowhere fast.

So I've been thinking about going to law school. I see all of this shit and it makes me think that one day I could be a positive change in tearing all of this shit down and cleaning up my old neighborhood and the surrounding communities, which are all torn apart by racism and division which is very obviously purposely created by lawmakers and politicians as a profit system. Sometimes I picture myself with a high profile career.

I know almost nothing about law though. I was in debate in highschool but thats obviously nothing near anything I would be dealing with. I have no credits in school. I've basically just been partying for the past 5 years and have started to rebuild my life over the past couple years.

I understand that law school is very expensive and very difficult, and I want to make sure this is something I'm going to actually dedicate my life to. If I did this I would like to be very serious about this and have a high profile career.

Public interest jobs like the ones you're describing are pretty much limited to graduates of the very best law schools and they don't pay super well.

If you want to do this you better have a near perfect undergrad gpa, can get a nearly perfect lsat score and a background of doing exceptional things in public interest. Because you need to go to Harvard or Yale and on a huge scholarship.

The problem is most people go to school thinking that they can go to a shitty school and being a special snowflake will be enough, and it's not.

Or you can actually go to Harvard or Yale for free, but end up working for a faceless mega firm anyways because it's hard to turn down that money.

I would probably suggest not going if I was in your shoes, you're idealistic and this is a career field for pessimists.

The fuck are you talking about? Basil could certainly "be a positive change in tearing all of this shit down and cleaning up my old neighborhood" as a public defender or state prosecutor. M. Pagglefot doesn't have to be Mr. Skadden Fellow working for the SPLC to do that. And while (s)he wont get a yacht doing that kind of work, it doesn't exactly sound like the brother is on the straight shot to career success doin what they're doin now.

Kid -- just go back to undergrad, major in a field you have some talent in, and get the best fucking grades you possibly can. You can figure out the rest along the way, but that's where to start. Get your shit in order before you launch yourself on something like this.

If you want to find out about the field, consider trying to arrange some informational interviews -- i.e., just meet for fucking coffee or a beer -- with some actual attorneys. Shake your social network and a few will fall out. Given your interests, maybe reach out to public defenders and state prosecutors and just talk to them about what they do for a living, see if it interests you, and take it from there.

Funny, I'm a strong "social Conservative", label myself a traditionalist . . .

. . . yet every single time I've ever been in the South for more than two weeks I wanted to fucking kill myself.

I'm sorry you have to deal with this shit, OP. When I moved to Europe, I saw what Conservatism/Traditionalism REALLY was.

Go for it, my dude. I just want to say one thing, though . . .

>which are all torn apart by racism and division which is very obviously purposely created by lawmakers and politicians as a profit system.

People do this to themselves. Trust me, no politricks is required whatsoever.

Do what Blommlebury (lol) says. Undergrad, get damn near a 4.0, eat, sleep, breath law, and MAYBE you'll have your high profile career after being in the field for 10+ years . . . if you don't burn yourself out by then.
