    this guy calls out for me " he must be her son or something looks like he just got up out of bed and hasn't showered in a month or two. over weight and well kind of dumb looking...." I'm sure he could tell me who was on Springer yesterday"
    He says so you wont cut my mommia's headges.... I say,,, what... I told her I would for 200.00, he says WHAT.... you mean you would charge to do that when your allready hear and you have gas hedge trimmers'.....

    Wow, this reminds me EXACTLY of something that a couple of my very distant relatives would do. They would call the cops on ANYONE for ANYTHING. You can ask Jason on here, he used to live on their street. Just saw their name in the transcript today, they were suing someone for like $250.
