130. Brick trick reminds me of a funny story -- and true:
Edited on Sun Oct-25-09 10:48 PM by Liberty Belle
Years ago a local publisher stiffed a bunch of writers on payments. Turned out he was a professional con man, constantly starting new publications and not paying writers. He didn't own a thing, leased all his office supplies even so there was no way to collect a judgment.

One writer, however, got revenge. Since he also did photographer, he had been given the publisher's Federal Express account number. So he mailed the publisher a box of bricks, carefully weighed to equal the amount he was owed, and enclosed a note that said "Now you know what it feels like to get ripped off for $365!"
