Our Chief Elements are Fear and Suprise
Got the rest of my money from Heathen today. How's that, you ask? Well, I truly considered dressing up like a Spanish cardinal and storming into her bank, waving about a comfy chair until she broke down sobbing and paid me my money, but decided against it. Instead, after having yet another email of mine go ignored for a week, I wrote her a final email, informing her that my next step would be to take her to small claims court if I did not have check in hand, paid in full, by Friday. And by that I mean, yesterday.
So, of course, Thursday I get an email from her saying she was going to drop it in the mail *on* Friday, and I should have it Saturday, or at the very latest Monday. I beg your pardon? Let's come back in and try that again, shall we? Truly, this girl is a piece of work.
So, I'm all paid up. No more trouble at the mill, which is nice. I used a lot of energy and time trying to get my money; just shy of three months. Hooray for closure!
Nobody expects the Sha... oh, bugger!
