About 1600 people, actually.
Remember, someone who will tell you they are honest will probably lie to you
about other things. Mark Twain.
Now we're going to start the honest preaching to the dishonest thread again,
Only thing more boring than a person who claims to be honest is a reformed
smoker or drinker.
Holy Jesus, you need a hobby. Unless if yours is being perfect. If you had
followed the thread to the conclusion, you would have learned that I
returned the receipt to the manager and found out that I was actually
supposed to get the damaged door for free, and that the girl had made the
mistake. They also gave me a gift certificate on top of that.
Sometimes, it's good to post all the facts. Unless, of course, you don't
want to tell the WHOLE story.
May you be judged finally with the same strict measure of judgement with
which you judge others. But then, in your case, a person who is perfect, I
guess that wouldn't apply, would it? And may you come to understand that
people sin. It's just part of being human. The difference is a man who
will tell you that he has sinned, and is making an effort not to.
As for forgiveness, the phrase "70 times 7" comes to mind, too. What makes
you so perfect that you need to go to Google and get things to make yourself
look good? Can I mail you a mirror?
What I say will ring in the hearts of some people here. Others won't have a
clue because they live their lives comparing themselves to others, always
taking the chance to point out their superiority.
If it's okay, I'll stay in the lying dishonest sinner group, because that's
what I am occasionally.
And that's about as honest as I can be.

Well, we leave in the morning for Utah. I'm going to take my receipt back
to the manager and see what he says happened and offer to make it right.
I will advise in about two weeks when I return.
In my absence, try to get along without me and don't fight.

Let me make several observations here, You claim:
"If you had
Well I did read the thread to it's conclusion, and the last post you made to
the thread was the one above.
I for one do not find your story to be convincing. First in reading the
thread, you attempt to justify what appears to me and to most of the other
posters to that thread that you had committed theft by fraud.
Next you admit to lying in court, this is called perjury. You also advocate
that others should lie in court, that is subornation of perjury.
You are a self admitted liar and a cheat, so I for one find no reason to put
any credibility in your assertion that you had second thoughts about
returning to the store and that they awarded you a gift certificate for your
I also find that your continuing biblical references to be self serving so I
doubt that you as a person, hold much stock in the teachings.
My advice to you is if you ever find yourself in a position where your
attorney advises you to decline to testify in your own behalf, take the
advise, because there may very well be someone on the jury that will notice
the same things as your critics have noted here.
If knowledge is power, and power corrupts, what does this say about the
I am not so sure about the validity of your complaint that people are
digging up your past and passing judgment. First off this was sort of asked
for by you with you bragging and then when your behavior was challenged, you
defended your actions by, in effect claiming that it was OK for you to
commit a wrong because other people had done likewise, and further attacking
those that called your behavior in question when you asked for it.
A totally different group? I am not so sure, it is my understanding that
many convicted felons assert claims very similar to your self serving

Bringing back a dead thread serves what purpose?
First off this was sort of asked
No, what I stated in this thread was that if you went in front of a judge,
and at least presented a plausible lie, that you would be fined less.
Attorneys get paid big bucks to do that for people. Does that make the
client less of a liar just because their attorney presents their lie, and
not they? And the OP stated numerous times that some of his actions were at
the least a little "shady". (if not actual lies or lies by omission)
You are comingling two threads here, and I want to distinguish that.
So, therefore, now your passing of that judgement puts me in the group of
convicted felons? You assume too much, my friend.
Difference is I admit guilt.
And that puts me in a different group than those who claim perfection.
IIRC, the thread of the $909 parking ticket was brought up by you, and you
gloated over besting the law several times. You made several direct
references to times when you took advantage of a mistake or misstep by the

Steve, the thread, which I did not read untill you suggested that it would
clear your image, indicated to me that in fact Mr. Miller's assesment of you
was correct. Your continued attack on Mr. Miller appeared to invite others
to agree with you and of course, disagree with you, I disagree with you.
If you are talkig about me, I do not believe that I was painting the picture
that I was "shady". I was only asserting rights afforded every citizen. I
do not think that that is "shady". If you know of any lawyer that lies to
the court, then you should turn them in to the bar association so that they
can be dealt with like Bill Clinton or Mr Nifong.
I am doing just that and with your invitation. You chose to use this forum
rather than e-mail to attack someone taking issue with you. I just added my
opinion based on your own words.
No, the difference is that they have been accused, tied and convicted, you
are still at large.
I do not believe that Mr. Miller, myself, or anyone else that has taken
issue with your conduct has claimed perfection.

after they apologize for being easily offended.

Been nice talking to you, too, Ron. I'm gonna miss you..
If admitting I am faulted is taken as saying I'm an asshole, then that is
what I am. If challenging others who claim they are honest and unfaulted is
being an asshole then I am am. If having disdain for those who are
unforgiving is being an asshole then I am.
Guilty as charged.
You've apparently forgotten my response the last time you accused me of
thinking I'm perfect:
"I'm not perfect either. One difference between you and me is that I'm
*ashamed* of my misdeeds -- whereas you're proud of yours."
You don't appear to have changed.
I did. If you recall, I was one of the biggest critics both of your dishonesty
and of the pride you took in it.
I learned that you *claim* you did that, anyway -- after _several_days_ of
taking heat from me and several others over your actions, which you continued
to defend long after it became clear that they were indefensible.
Ummmmm...... I don't think that's quite the way it was presented then.....
The "whole story" is there, in your own words.
Oh, the irony, coming from someone who (a) refuses to admit that his actions
were dishonest, and (b) makes no apparent effort to reform them, either.
Oh, give it a rest. I *never* claimed to be superior to you, except in one
regard: contrasted with the pride you obviously take in your misdeeds, I feel
shame for mine.
And that's unfortunate.

I'm sorry, Harold. I used some of your quotes to reply to Doug, who's been
in my twit filter for quite some time now. I would have posted directly to
him, but since he doesn't appear on my screen, I don't see what he posts
until he entwines himself with another poster. Please see that post to see
my answer to Doug's busybody concerns.
