I can't believe people like this exist. Is Brenda some sort of sociopath, I guess? That's low-down, immoral behavior. If I were you I'd slip some rat bait in her walk-in and then call the health inspector! I guess that would be sinking to her level, though.

Well, good luck... I guess I don't have to tell you that I was on Jill's side before I even heard the end of the story!

PS- Really didn't know how to fillet a fish in a fish shop, eh? Got your work cut out for you there!

Good luck Attie. Brenda is not a good business person. Word of mouth is a powerful tool. In some areas that would call for drastic measures (if you catch my drift).

It's all good news here, their sales have doubled and the tart down the road is starting to struggle. They need to double yet again and then it will be a good little business. By Xmas they will be grinning.

I'm glad they have you on their side, and I'm so glad things are turning around for them!

Good job Attie she's got it comming. The cool thing is you can nail her without doing any wrong but just helping someone out. Can your friends take her to court for stealing? If so it will be in all the papers giving her another whammy.
