HA very well NotMrJohn, but as Mike would maintain as well as many others, maybe even myself, this message is about the mmmailbox and not the post. Mike may get mixed up

Lets see you do that with mmmmmm

A lively discussion but has anyone noticed that the original poster has not logged on since the first day he posted (9/18/12). Probably heard to many answers that disagreed with his position.

He got all the same answers at that other forum (which you can find if you google search " /f45/mailbox-repair-cost-14752 " and choose the one thats not here. Everyone at the other site said "totally reasonable".

If it were me I would just ask for an invoice. If it were over $100 on the invoice and I had pictures of how it looked before then I would ask her to go ahead and file a small claims court case because thats getting a bit unreasonable.

He came here for religious affirmation or something, did not get it, and is no doubt posting to forums all over the internet hoping to find it. Happens now and then. It's sad and I am sure he is very angry.

Meanwhile while others saw the People's Court drama unfolding this seemed to have such movie script or even Stephen King novel potential... Hummer driving Stepford blonde wife with ukelele playing red-headed kid with freckles and a limp... Evil money sucking music teacher... A bent mailbox that may any day straighten itself faster than Christine... DIYers already thinking of what the music score should be?

Instead of small claims court, I'd recommend mediation, I maintain that Mike's missus's mishap in mangling the money hungry music maven's mediocre mail box with a moving vehicle is not a misdeed and is moot. Mikes unmanly and unmannerly manner of mismanaging the matter , and his motive of avoiding monetary remediation makes Mike the miscreant ... but why go on, hmmmm?

sd, you're just hoping it will be a color film with tricky lighting, that requires lots of $150/hr consulting so stuff winds up looking right on film. Score?
"Please, Mr Postman" " Mail myself to you" "letter by mail" "money" " mail house blues" ( Little known song by Mike amd the Sulkers)

Dang it! they already made the movie about car accidents and money and crime, sorry, sd, BandW, film noire, the box fell once, but The Postman Always Rings Twice

BTW, Mike disappeared from that "other forum" too. Other forum is of inferior construction, they obviously didn't seek advice before starting the project.

It's also quite possible that mikeATL was set up by the piano lady because mike hasn't paid up on the outstanding piano lesson balance.

Things are just out of hand here and many poets seem to have surfaced. LOL!

Seriously, lets just stop the madness everyone...

OMG >>When are you going to understand....Pianolady is a member HERE...You made her mad Like these guys. They have fire coming from their chins. She is the only one that we know for sure who teaches piano.

Mike's music teacher is a different person. She teaches the kazoo, the triangle and the gong....maybe piano

We may never know because Mike is looking for emotional support elsewhere.
Someone said they saw him over at crybaby.com

Over at the Mouse's sticky, "How much will it cost?" Asking for price estimates here. he sez ",... be aware that some members may treat your post(s) with disdain (and even irritability)" and has a link to an example. I kinda hope he locks this thread 'cause I'm getting addicted to it. Just so long as he don't expunge it. It can stand as a warning to those who ask, "What's it cost" and to those who ask for information and then argue with responders.

I thought these guys , were Mini, Moore, and Mack, spokesmen for "How to Grow Wispy Beards Really Fast. ( Fire comin' out of their chins! That's gotta hurt.))

I am entering re-hab, even if DM acts, there is still the exactly worded, copied and pasted, question in that "Other(inferior)Forum" I do not know the locality of the rehab center, and do not have pictures of the facility, does any one know how much treatment will cost?

Thats why they look so angry

You are not following the rules. You know you're not supposed to ask for prices, now you're gonna get us locked. I will tell you before the mods see this though, that the price is exactly $100. Unless you need an intervention, then thats a whole new thread.

The red spreads!
But have no dreads,
Expungation does not loom
Nor is expurgation nigh.
So give not, to Mouse , a reason why,
He should lower the moderater's boom.

Another Edit by DM:
A poem for you, a poem for them!
This is getting rather silly,
So don't go off all willy-nilly.
Keep playing nice and we'll not close,
This thread that tickles us with prose.
