Trying to reach an understanding with Mr. Y
Thank you for taking the time to explain your position in regards to my new mailbox. While I don’t necessarily agree with your point of view I am willing to accept it. I will just have to find another way to earn some much needed cash.
Based on your very thorough definition of an officious intermeddler I am assuming it is a good thing that I did not break ground on your new pool. You see I was going to put in a pool for you while you were away a few weekends ago but I just got busy. Since you seem to be unwilling to give a dog a ten spot I am betting the $15,000 for the pool is out of the question.
Your response has opened my eyes. I still think this officious intermeddler method of demanding payment has merit, so I am not quite ready to give it up. However you seem to have sound legal training and the ability to throw around big words. Why do lawyers insist on using big works and terms like the part of the second part? Why not just call him Jim or the jerk we are suing.
What this experience has shown me is that I am probably in need of legal council. What I am willing to offer you is the following. I will drop my claim for the $10 on the condition that I am allowed to use you Mr. Y as my legal council. You can consider the disputed $10 as a retainer. In exchange for being my legal council I will allow you to use my name on your client list. I have no doubt that representing the number one Dog Odder on the plant will have a dramatic effect on you career, perhaps enough so that you can actually put in that pool. Please make sure you get a gunite one as I am told it is common for dogs to rip the liners of vinyl pools.
