Karma rears its head for a rude mediation lawyer
Sorry I have been absent here lately. With SD's out of the house, its been relatively calm.
I wanted to share a great karma experience that my DH had recently. He works in HVAC heating and cooling and went out on a customer call. A man answered the door and looked VERY familiar to DH.
DH realized within a few seconds that this guy was the extremely rude mediation lawyer for him and his ex wife. The lawyer had confrontationally asked DH why he didn't answer calls from BM, and instead texted her back. When my DH said "First and foremost, I have to look out for my mental health. Texting gives me a legal record of what was said, and keeps me from falling victim to useless drama." ( Given BM's background of harrassment, this is fair, I think.)
The lawyers response was to make fun of DH and mock him in front of his ex for watching out for his own mental health.
So DH asks the man "Are you by any chance a lawyer?"
The man looks surprised and says "Yes, do I know you?"
Dh says, tongue in cheek, "No, just looking out for my own mental health. Sorry, but I'm unable to complete your service call today, OR EVER.."
The lawyer's eyes light up and he gets a mean gleam in his eye. "I remember you! I mediated for your and your ex wife, didnt' I? Well, you can't possibly hold that against me! I have no air conditioning and its 97 degrees out and will be for the next month!"
DH says calmly "Yes, have fun sweating. It sure is hard to find a good A/C repairman during a heatwave. You probably won't get anyone out here until 2 months from now."
The lawyer gets angry, and say "Oh, you WILL BE BACK. I'm calling your manager right now."
Dh: "Oh, PLEASE DO!"
Dh drives away laughing. His boss, who is also his good friend, calls him to ask what's up with this guy. DH explains and the boss agrees with him. The boss calls the lawyer back and says "We are refusing service to you forever. Don't call back."
I hope you all enjoyed this little bit of petty revenge on a very entitled attorney who thought being impartial was just too much to ask - especially when the BM was slutting it up for him, trying to curry favor.
