  1. The law is really strict that hours already worked have to be paid promptly, pretty much no matter what. The original contract, however technically flawed, is evidence of the employee having a good faith agreement to do certain work in exchange for certain pay.
  2. This is not new. I suspect a lot of it is inside jobs involving store personnel. Two things have to happen: Make note of the card number and put it back in the package. Know exactly when the card has been purchased to start charging it.
  3. The motorcyclists ought to move aside to let the cagers roll up their windows and handle this.
  4. If it is the type with a 10 year non-replaceable battery-- required in rental units by many localities--there is a switch on the back to shut the detector down for quiet disposal at the end of its life. Once switched off it will no longer respond to smoke. Also there's no way to switch back on, it can't be restarted. On the back the manufacture date is shown. If that was more than 10 years ago, the detector must be replaced regardless of any noise it may or may not be making. The landlord can't complain about you turning the kill switch.
  5. Bullets fired into the air will come down with enough speed to kill someone. It has happened many times.
  6. Are they going to make you patch the bullet holes before you leave?
  7. An antibody test will tell if a person has had COVID or not. It looks for different antibodies than the vaccine generates. As a general rule, having a strong bad reaction to your first dose of anything is a perfectly valid reason not to take another one.
  8. @1:50 "Citation offers the reliability that Nova owners have come to expect."
  9. I could see how this could happen-- shoddy programming similar to what allowed bumping. Inserting a tradeline record exactly the same as an existing one except for the AU flag gets run as an update. Then there is only one record, an AU account which is readily deleted upon request. So that's cool while it lasts, which may not be long.
  10. In most States traffic violation is a criminal prosecution, which can be a good thing because there is a higher burden of proof the State must meet. For example tickets based on an automatic camera don't meet the Sixth Amendment right to confront your accuser.
  11. The takeaway from point #4 was that if you don't address this judgment and re-instate your license, you need to quit driving.
  12. Go back and read all the words, not just the ones you want to see.
  13. As far as staying out of debt, your first priority needs to be stop driving without a license and insurance. That readily leads to massive civil obligations, job loss, and pesky "government stuff" like fines and jail time. So consider that judgment which resulted from crashing a car without insurance, which rightly has everything to do with your DL-- really. Here are the practical options: 1. BK it. If BK is seriously on the table for the end-game, you should go ahead and do it. That at least starts the 7 year clock sooner. Then you have to fly right for 7 years. 2. Lump sum settlement. You don't have the money. Moving on... quit wasting money pursuing that. No one here has recommended it. 3. Payment plan. If a judge signs off on the plan, you get your license back. Judges can be sympathetic to poor people. Figure out how much of your wages the creditor can garnish per week (which is something that is coming down the pike anyway) and offer to voluntarily pay a few dollars more. It is likely to be a rather small amount. 4. Ignore it. This is a potential option only if you quit driving. Otherwise what I said in the first paragraph applies. Also your State's laws for how long judgments are collectable would need to be considered.
  14. At least the just paid off car wasn't underneath when it dropped.
