We already did adverse possession, there were a bunch of jokes going around with that one. Actually, I had a real life K's moment a couple of weeks ago. I had to get a new battery for my car. When they finished, right before I paid they gave me the invoice. Since now I read everything before I sign it (thanks law school!) imagine my surprise when I saw in conspicuous print: "The seller hereby expressly disclaims all warranties, either express or implied, including any implied warranty of merchantibility or fitness for a particular purpose...and neither assumes nor authorizes...any liability in connection with the sale."

Ah, those sly devils at the mechanics shop. Little did they know, we had just finished 2-207, so I was all over that joint. I was actually surprised at how quick I formulated everything, I IRAC'd that *&^% in about 4 seconds. This is a sale of goods, the UCC applies, and we didn't say nan word about excluding warranties when we formed the K.  This is a proposal for additional terms, and it's not included in the K because this isn't a transaction between merchants. Even if you want to argue that it was a sale of services because they installed the battery, based on the preponderance test, the sale of goods outweighs the services provided because had I not purchased the battery, they wouldn't have had any services to perform in the first place. Therefore, this is sale of goods and I'm not bound to the added terms. I asked the clerk for a pen, calmly struck through all the language that I didn't agree to, initialized it, swiped my debit card, signed the invoice, and exited stage left. The clerk was standing there looking like  :o

This law *&^% is pretty handy. This place was definitely set up by lawyers. I already see that a bar card can be a very powerful tool in this country.

Lol people are rarely bound by the boilerplate.  I just sign and know that I'll sue later if it doesn't work out.
