I hear a lot of bullshit excuses and/or stories in my line of work, but this one is a doozy:
So this chick walks in today and wants to pay the attorney’s fees for her boyfriend’s traffic matter. We quoted him $100.00 to take care of a couple of insurance tickets. She says,”I had all the money to take care of this, but I seem to have misplaced it somehow between the parking lot and the door. Will you do it for $20 instead?”
Bitch, please. Do I look like I was born yesterday? Next time, come up with a better scam.
