Process Service In Arizona

Quite amazing. My doorbell rings a little while ago, dogs go crazy. I can't see the person on my video surveillance - strange. Bad feeling - well - just a feeling, something isn't right. I walk up to about 10 feet from my gate.

Remember, I have no front door on my house. I have block fences with gates. I have a doorbell button out there. I have video surveillance, on the gate and another on the general area.

I ask who's there. My Catahoula is going crazy, I can't see anyone. Man finally appears - I removed one of the slats from my gate so that - shorter - people could reach through the gate to remove the lock. I can see the man through the slat.

Tim? Dunno any Tim, what do you want. "Well come here and see". I don't think so. I'm thinking go back in the house, get the gun, call 911. Paranoia? No. No-one comes to my house talking in such secretive tones or trying to get me to the gate. Then I think: process server. This is the kind of game they play. He's looking for a guy that doesn't live here. He stayed here with his girlfriend for ONE week about 2 months ago, that was it. I don't know the guy, I don't have contact with him, I have no responsibility.

He realizes I ain't coming to the gate and I flatly tell him I'm not taking anything from him. He says he has papers for this guy, so what? I don't care what papers he has, go find the guy, get the bleep off of my property. He says he's leaving the papers on the fence. I inform him he's on video surveillance. He starts attempting to recite law to me - I KNOW the law on process serving, the papers actually have to be handed to the person, not left on a gate. Notwithstanding the fact that the person they are attempting to serve must ACTUALLY LIVE THERE.

He's on video surveillance, the papers are left on the top of a 6 foot block wall. I already went inside and am watching this nonsense. The wind blows the papers off the wall and onto the ground. THIS is legal process serving? Whoever the State of Arizona is using to serve these papers is using a low-life company. That man is going to have to lie about the service, there is no way he can recite verbatim what actually occured and have that be declared as a proper, legal service.

What to do? Contact the attorney general's office for one. I have read that these companies are bidding $8 per service on these photo radar situations. They can do that because - obviously. They don't care what they do with the papers, it's a done deal, it's done with impunity. It's totally outrageous that this company - or these companies - are getting away with this shit.

Thursday

"Who would give out free food this day and age", a question posed by a Craigslist dissenter of another CL'ers post. The lack of intellect that is showed all over Craigslist is appalling. The Dumb Mill grinds them out and apparently are hatched on Craigslist, is all I can think of. Yes, I wrote a dissenting post back to that person.

Well whatever. Iran is back in the news with their alleged hand-over of a sophisticated radar system to, of all places, Syria. Or course, Iran and Syria in bed with each other, whoda thought? The implications - well you will just have to read about it yourself on the news or see it on TV. Of course, both Iran and Syria deny that such a transferrence took place.

Meanwhile, "gobs" of oil have washed up on the coastline after Hurricane Alex hit land. Okay, okay, I'll try not to get start on this oil disaster - I think the people that held a day of prayer for that situation had it right: at this point, it's going to take God's intervention to do anything about this.

Thursday. Love the ring to it. 2 full work days to go, including today, before 9 full days off of work. Very nice, indeed.
My time has run out. I was reading a rather long string of posts on Craigslist - people running off their mouths. Amazing those ads haven't been flagged and deleted.

Anyway, have a great day!

Thirsty Thursday switched to - whatever Wednesday. Dunno, haven't done it in a month, I don't have the funds to be going out and ha...
