Hey y'all! Hugs, kisses, yada yada yada...
Well, did I EVER get a surprise on Sattidy!!!
When Mr. Postman came strolling down the street, he dropped something off that one might call "life changing." Seems that I have been "blessed" with a legal settlement!
It seems that the legal settlement involves my business (yes, I do still operate my own business even though I have a day job that pays me fabulously well...which I LOVE my job, btw). Anyway, the check came right on time, and I am sure that it will make my life MUCH easier.
The REALLY good thing about the settlement is that I am quite sure I never signed, nor mailed back ANY class action lawsuit paperwork to get it. I'm sure I didn't, because even though I get gozillions of those, they all go in the round filing cabinet. So, there must be some NEW way to participate in class action law suits that I'm not aware of.
But the REALLY, REALLY, REALLY good thing about it is that it involved the evil folks of The Gooble getting their own!!! Yep! The Gooble got sued by some Hanson guy, and had to pay up!
God bless that jurdge!
Oh, I haven't reminded y'all of this in a WAY, WAY long time, but...
Regardless, this Hanson guy evidently had some beef with The Gooble over their "Adwords" deal, and sued the bastards on behalf of online merchants. Or something. To be honest (again), I don't ever remember using Gooble Adwords to promote my business on the worldwide computer. I do remember doing some pay per click junk about 9 or 10 years ago, but I think it was with Yahoo, or maybe Compuserve (been a long time, so I'm not sure).
Now, I'm gonna show y'all a scanned picture dealie of the check, because it is just so dang
Please note that I have blocked out the name of my business (to protect the guilty), corrected my legal name to the only name I actually answer to, and highlighted a certain problem that this "windfall" might cause for me.
(You might have to click on the picture to see it big enough to read the fine print).
Crud...I guess I'll have to contact my tax professional about all of the multiplied "tax issues" that this is gonna cause.
But, I think Imma go ahead and cash it anyway.
I could use a half a gallon of gas right now!
So, the "windfall" is all spoken for.
Even though I love all y'all...y'all are on y'all's own!
