Gabriel, sorry to hear the news. That is frustrating.
Some people don't stand by their word very well, and it sure makes life hard for all of use innocent folks. No one knows who to trust and who to believe.
I wonder what happened to this thing called "integrity even when it hurts?"
There are over a million lawyers(pronounced "liars") in this country now. The current "common sense" is say and do anything that makes you happy. The only professional integrity that the legal profession follows seems to be "get the money". They are even calling looking for possible law suits if you have medical problems.
50 years ago it was only a small percentage of bad guys. Bad actions were not acceptible and were severely punished. There was no crime or even bad behavior in my neighborhood because it would have lead to real punishment. Now days with such a high percentage of bad guys they don't fear punishment. This has lead to worse and worse behavior.
All we can do is be good examples to our children and be carefull of who you trust. In this case you were probably spared from dealing with someone that you may have regreted. Do not let bad guys dictate your mood. Good Luck, Rick
