tilly you were definately forgetful, and possibly shortsighted but I take issue with you calling yourself stupid. You might be kicking yourself for not avoiding trouble, but it sounds like someone is taking a personal interest in making your life hell. It sounds like you are being bullied, albeit in a much more sophisticated way than your average schoolyard bully.

I know the feeling when you walk into a room and some smiling arsehole in a suit ruins your day, month, and year. I faced almost the same thing at Christmas time (they delivered their intention to charge me the day after Christmas). It ruined my holiday, and I still feel tense every time I think of it.

It sounds like you have some people on your side, and I hope that your admonishment is nothing more than a slap on the wrist. I certainly appreciate you are caught by your contract, and that he who has the most lawyers wins. If you can get away without losing completely, you are doing allright.

On a slight tangent, I can recommend public service (federal enmployment?) work (such as I am in now). Admittedly I am earning less than any of my friends (at the worst, half of their salaries), but the working conditions are great, the hours are good, and they do respect your rights. Money is nice, but I'm really enjoying going to work, knowing that not much at work can escape into my private life.

Best of luck,

I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.
