It looks as though Uma has not exactly killed Bill. What the heck am I talking about? Well, if you follow me you will recall that I decided to go to the Italian consumer’s association and go after Fastweb who has been harassing me for two years to pay them and they owe me money! I made reference to Uma Thurman, in the film Kill Bill, because I was ready to kick some serious Fastweb butt…or at least I was hoping that my lawyer would do it for me.
My lawyer called and we had a meeting this week. She didn’t kill Bill! Fastweb responded to her letter by stating that they were willing to pay me back €40 from my second contract but completely ignored my claim for €400 on my first contract. Ugh!
So, now my choice is this. A) I accept the money and forget all about the rest with a possibility of Fastweb harassing me again for the other contract (although, I doubt they will because now they realize that they owe me money and not the other way around). Or, B) spend another €150 to have my lawyer fight for the €400 they still owe me. In the end I could still lose or get caught up in a paper war to which I will certainly lose because I am not rich enough to pay a lawyer every time Fastweb decides to jerk me around with more bullshit.
So, my question is this. What would you do if you were in my shoes?
The reason I ask is because it isn’t only about the money…it is about the principal of the matter too. But I’m a stubborn, hard-headed woman and my husband thinks I should just cut my losses and take the €40, end of story. But part of me thinks if everyone continues to roll over and play dead then these big corporations will always win at taking advantage of people and that irks me to no end. Sadly, one person sometimes cannot make much of a difference.
I was going to add a poll here but I cannot seem to figure out how to do that on the iPad App (insert appropriate curse words here). So, if you have an opinion that you would like to share please comment because I would love to here from you 🙂
