”Well Mr. Miller- the estate is going into probate.”
“Well- fantastic!” (Learned in Jr. High that the ‘Pro’ prefix is a good thing)
“In your case… it means you are going to lose the house.”
“Oh, you were right earlier, I have no idea what the fuck we are talking about.”
The legal system is a confusing thing. You need years of specialized schooling to practice and/or even really understand law and it dictates all of our lives. In California we pass hundreds of new laws every year. Hundreds! It has gotten to the point that we are starting to lose track. My uncle was telling me the other day that we are no longer allowed to eat and drive.
I still don’t know if it’s true. He explained how he was buying a bunch of Go-Gurt to replace his usual morning on the go choices of a banana and granola bar.
