Every year there's at least one smart azz that needs to be taught a lesson, this year was no different. Please only respond if you know Small Claims. Don't jack my thread discussing what the best way to collect should be. It was only $160 this time, cost $21 to file and the biggie is it was at a county court I'd never been to before. The defendant didn't show. I got cheated out of half the fun. I love knowing that I caused them a fair amount of inconvenience by making them show up in court. On a side note. I always ignored jobs outside my county because I was unfamiliar with the adjoining county, not knowing where the courthouse was, their prcedures, parking, etc. Now that I finally had my learning experience and realized it was not all that bad, I think I'll expand my territory a bit.
