...And the winner is.....

I won, but I lost.... The judge cut the baby in half and tossed me a bone with the court fees. I lost anyway by even taking this to court... Sadly, anyone can screw a small business for anything under $500 and get away with it. It simply costs the small business more money to take it to court combined with not being on the job. least it made her day as miserable as mine.
