Brother DOWNY -

I find myself upping the number of cigarettes and cups of coffee I am consuming on a daily basis.  Can you recommend a solution for these addictions?

Thank you

Brother Desi

DOWNY has noticed himself experiencing the same problem. DOWNY's alcohol intake is way up too. As a solution, DOWNY proposes switching some of the cigs for joints and some of the coffee for beer or hard liquor. This will dissipate overreliance on two given substances by dispersing the usage among four substances. The result will be to reduce the addictive effects of each. Next time you want some coffee, take a shot.

Dear Downy,

A few weeks ago I put a sticky on the fridge notifying my roommate of how much money he owes me.  He has yet to pay me and I have noticed that the sticky has mysteriously disappeared.  How should I handle this situation?

If he has any utilities or common expense in his name you're home free. Simply refuse payment and use the money you would owe to square away the debt.

If he doesn't, then you need to start eating his food with reckless abandon, until the amount is recovered.

If this isn't an option, pretend to be drunk and beat the *&^% out of him. He can't get too mad later on because you were drunk. Then just say, "Yeah, when I'm drunk I just can't control myself if someone owes me money. Good thing I didn't kill you, heh heh. By the way, I'm going to the bar tonight."

Dear DOWNY,

I am once again seeking your expert guidance and wisdom.  My life is in peril.  You see, it all began when I went to the Verizon wireless store this afternoon.  My phone had been dropping every other call I got and half the time, the person on the other line couldn’t hear me.  The people at the store told me they would give me a new phone.  I think they were doing it just to make me shut up.  (I was not very pleased and made sure that EVERYone in the store knew it.  This was my third phone in two weeks.)

So they gave me the new phone and I happily drove myself home.  All was fine and dandy for about 2 minutes thereafter, when I got the first call from “that woman.”  She called and asked for Bill.  I told her she had the wrong number.  She called again, asking for Bill.  I thought this was strange, because she had a California number and it would b very strange to have a misguided call from a California number to a Tennessee number (which mine is).  Suspecting something was out of place I called my mom, and sure enough, she didn’t recognize the number on the caller ID.  The idiots at the store had hooked up the wrong number to the phone they gave me. 

I called the store and let them know about the mistake.  Failing to apologize, they instructed me to call customer service.  By the time I could do that (I had class today) the store was closed.  And when I called customer service, they told me I would have to get it fixed at the store tomorrow.  As if that hadn’t pissed me off enough, “that woman” had already called my phone nearly 50 times in a 7 hour period. She wanted to know where the @#!* Bill was and why he was f-ing around on her again. After the first three times I tried to explain to her that there was a mistake at the store, I stopped picking up her calls.  At that point, she proceeded to call and leave voicemails (which I did not check) she resorted to text messaging her frustrations, and including several threats against my life and person. 

What should I do?

Regards,

Broken Telephone

DIVA,
It took DOWNY a long time to get back to you because your problem is pretty screwed up. DOWNY is puzzled by what to do, which leaves only one option- the trusty default. Get really wasted and drive around for awhile, and it will come to you.


Just to let everyone know I am bored with torts tonight so I decided to get a little drunk. Superiorlobe you are a female dog and DOWNY IS GOD. Never forget it, female dog.

Dear DOWNY,

Why did you decide on a truce with LTB?

Dear DOWNY,

Why did you decide on a truce with LTB?

A great question- basically LTB helped bring the term "TTT" to this site. Also, LTB says some funny *&^% about law school sucking, which is pretty true.

Finally, LTB SIGNED THE DOWNY FOR MODERATOR PETITION WHICH IS A LOT MORE THAN I CAN SAY FOR SOME OF THE STUPID FUCKS ON THIS SITE WHO SECRETLY HATE DOWNY BUT ARE TOO SCARED TO ADMIT IT OUT OF FEAR OF MY RESPONSE. I KNOW WHO YOU WORTHLESS FUCKS ARE- I JUST HUMOR YOU. DON'T THINK I AM FOOLED, FUCKERS!

But, it is important to note that I still hold other grudges, even those from over half a year ago. @#!* YOU DTA!

HTH and thanks for your inquiry
