Is there anything better than being home sick with a head cold on a icy Saturday night? Yeah, pretty much anything is better, but, at least the furnace is new and works like a mofo. I had a few questions posed in the last couple of days. Some I know the answers to, some I know an answer, maybe not the answer and for the rest, I’ll just talk out my ass.Â But first:

Can you bring a class action against someone with no class?
There was a question about class action. Keeping in mind, the Wine Dog by profession is a Commercial Title Officer and while I play with attorneys all day long, I’m not one. From my limited knowledge, caveat, caveat, caveat, I see two groups. A lot of people were under contract, and those contracts appear to have been breached. For example, if your contract said you had to generate $25k per month and you always hit your numbers, they broke it. If your contract said you had to generate $25k and you hit $15k for the last four months, your contract probably says (if it’s written like most of them) that they have to give you written notice to get your act together. If they didn’t, they broke it. Or maybe your contract didn’t have any numbers in it at all. If you met your portion, they broke it. If you are one of those examples, I would think long and hard before I joined any class taking class action. Your particular situation may be worth way more than you’ll ever recover in a class action suit. (more on that later). If you’re an average Joe with no contract, punching a clock and got jacked for your vacation and commissions, you’re in a different group. If I were in this group, I would be thinking class action.Â Keeping in mind, I’m not an attorney, blah blah blah, caveat, caveat, caveat.
I’ve heard rumblings that they are pursuing a class action in San Joaquin County. I don’t have actual knowledge about this. It could be just rumblings. If I were looking to pursue a class action, I would be looking for a firm that was well experienced in these sorts of matters. Don’t know that kind of experience lies out in San Joaquin County, but then again, two words. Erin Brockovich. (God I love photoshop…). On the other hand, as a public service, because that’s how we roll, I offer up a firm that has been vetted and does fight to right wrongs. Schneider & Wallace. The Wine Dog is not a member of either of these classes, and I haven’t worked with the firm, we just vetted them last week.Â I’m just sick and tired of title people getting it in the shorts. I’ve got a good rant in me right now, but I’m going to save it for a few days while I get it formulated in my head. Here’s a little nugget to mull over while I’m getting ready to tee off. Oh yeah, and it’s nearly Christmas.
My BFF sonofabun called last night to verify
“we aren’t exchanging right”
We both got shit canned on the same day in October of 2006 and we’ve both struggling for over a year to put our lives back together. That being said, I could easily be accused of being a train wreck on a lot of fronts. While that’s true, I was raised Christian and while I don’t approve the direction the church has taken, the teachings from my childhood are important. Still, the season is about the birth of Christ. If you don’t believe in that sort of stuff, that’s fine, it’s your prerogative, but that’s why we have Tuesday off. If you don’t believe in it, go to work that day. Really. Go. Now, it’s time for a pet peeve. If I’m out shopping for gifts right now, wish me a Merry Freaking Christmas for crying out loud. If I bought a driedl and some matzo balls the first week of December wish me a Happy Freaking Hannakah. What is a matter with people? The holiday right now is Christmas. It’s not any thing else. No one in their right mind is out shopping for the hell of it right now, so wish us a Merry goddamn Christmas. Thank you. And Merry Christmas gentle readers.
