You might be a professional debtor if...

...you filed for bankruptcy protection in 1990 and bought a $2M house in 1994.

Granted, that's the current value of the property, but still. (ETA: Zillow says the sale price at the time was $1.2 million.) At best, he's into risky ventures, making me less than impressed with the Tale of Woe he tried to sell our collector about why he hasn't paid for construction engineering work.

Of course, it also means he no doubt already has counsel lined up to lead a merry dance of annoyance designed to make creditors decide it's not worth the hassle to follow through with suit. Which is why collection attorneys work on a contingent basis instead of billing hourly...

In the meantime, we have a new phone system, and I swear the darn thing is haunted. Much giggling in Office of Doom today.

If the phone systems voice mail greeting says, "geeeettt ooouuuut!" and the hand set bleeds, I suggest going home sick.

*snicker* There was some prank mileage this morning following on the discovery that dialing someone's extension now puts you directly on their speaker instead of ringing like the old one did.
