Story of Florida Bartender Victim of a Loudmouth Bar Patron
This Broward County Bankruptcy attorney [that’s me – Howard Butler] – has heard many sad financial tales leading to bankruptcy – or worse!
The story I heard recently from a fellow bankruptcy lawyer fits that description.
The Story as I Heard It…
A local bartender was very good at his job. It helped pay his bills. While he was used to dealing with unruly customers, there was one customer he was not equipped to deal with.
An out of control man came up to him one night at work, yelling: “Why are these drinks so weak? You will not get away with this!” The bartender thought this patron must be on drugs or have serious mental issues. The next night his boss called him into the office. The out of control man was a big spender and the boss fired the bartender on the spot, not even asking for his side of the story.
The economy being what it is, the bartender could not find another job. Bills started piling up. Credit cards were used for living expenses. Collectors started calling. Collection lawsuits were started. It became too much to handle. The stress started to take a toll. The bartender did not know what to do. He had no way to pay all his debts. He finally did the only thing that could address the bills he was faced with. He consulted with a local bankruptcy attorney.
The bankruptcy attorney counseled him and the filed a bankruptcy case. This literally removed all the stress he was facing. After a few months the process was over and the bartender ended up with clean slate – a ‘fresh start’ as the U.S. Congress called it when they set up the bankruptcy laws.
Unforseen Circumstances often bring on Financial Troubles
Often people are put in bad financial situations through no fault of their own. This man was fired from a job he excelled in. Just based on the allegations of an out of control patron. In order to survive he ran up credit card debt. The interest and the late charges made climbing out of debt impossible. Thanks to the hard work of a bankruptcy lawyer he has been given a fresh start.
