This is a question Nights Out Gone Wrong

In celebration of the woman who went out for a quiet drink with friends after work, and ended up half naked, kicking a copper in the nads and threatening to smear her own shit over hospital staff, how have your best-laid plans ended in woe?

Perhaps admitting insurance fraud
and posting where you live and work in your profile in the same forum isn't the brightest idea you've had recently.

Old flat and I reckon I merely helped
the lettings company commit insurance fraud at the very worse, for the expense of a whole new security-door-lock, installed by themselves.

And I own the company I "work" for, so I shall not be firing myself. Maybe.

Funnily enough
the next address your insurers would look for after your home address is your work address, and that's very much on your website. Your full name, too.

But of course I'm the one being thick.

In all seriousness, what insurers?
I never spoke to any insurance company nor had any insurance policy. I'm sure the lettings management does, but this is about a half-hour call out of one of their own people. I'm probably not going to prison.

Not thick, no, but very much over-reacting.

You presumed that I thought that you worked for someone, especially after I told you I looked at your website
and now you presume that I was implying that you were going to prison.
All I did was point out that you admitted making a fraudulent insurance claim. You now tried justifying it by saying "oh it was an old property anyway and it was an improvement" and for a brief moment you thought that no insurers were involved.

In three posts you've managed to make five incorrect statements

I /presumed/ that you were actually trying to be nice and helpful.
And at what point did I think no insurers were involved? I don't think you being unable to understand my posts should really mean I'm thick. Five-times-thick at that. How very rude.

edit: And I'm not claiming to be an internet-funny-man, but both my reply about working for myself and my reply about going to prison were, I think really really quite undoubtedly obviously, in jest.

The 'in all seriousness, what insurers?' bit is where I'm referring to.
And I did say 'for a brief moment'. Are you sure you are understanding my posts, or are you angry because I called you out for committing fraud?
You wouldn't go to prison, as you correctly surmised. If caught, however, you would be asked to pay for all the expenses caused by your indiscretion.

It is also reasonable grounds for your letting agency to prematurely terminate your contract with them so again I say: it is not the brightest idea for you to post this and have a link your work details in your profile.
You just don't know what could happen, with so many members and non-members here.
Edit: As a fellow user just pointed out, I am being a dick now. But seriously, just be careful okay?

Like I said, old flat. Also a completely different letting agency, so nothing to terminate.
If the old lettings agency can somehow trace this back to me (they have a name, a common event at an unspecified location during a year) then I would happily pay the cost of the new lock as a reward for their hard work.

And I'm not angry at all, just bemused. I like fluffy-b3ta.

Aah, 'old' as in 'previous'
I got confused as you said that you probably improved it by doing so anyway, making me belive that it was old and rundown but your current flat.

Yeah, okay not such a bad idea anymore.

can I just add
we know you work in law, no one cares and shut up
(, Fri 25 Mar 2011, 12:30, closed)
If you're having to ask
No you may not, stop trying to be smart.

Careful I shall be :)
