David C. Garner : Hello, are you there?
David C. Garner : Ok, how are you?
Customer: eh...not so good...stressed out over this
David C. Garner : Ok... when you say what should you do, are you referring to the cat issue, or the slander issue?
Customer: the slander issue. This woman has told me to get an attourney. She said I told a lie when I quoted Alan exactly but he changed his mind..
David C. Garner : Ok, here is my advice. Do absolutely nothing. Bear down with all your might and ignore the entire situation. These people sound like nuts and I see no action here for slander. Even if there was, the will absolutely NOT pursue it as there is nothing to be gained by it.
Customer: alan, the manager said that he spoke with me...said that he told me about the vet and how Leslie had been banned but gave no further details. This is a lie...He told me that she had been banned for breaking into the building and trying to steal some puppies.
Customer: you think I have nothing to worry about? This woman has told me to get an attorney. I hate this. I told the truth but this guy Alan is afraid of getting into trouble
Customer: Leslie..the woman who did all of this is poor...works at Petco...so I dont see how she'd come up with the money to get an attorney but you never know....
David C. Garner : So what. She is trying to scare you. One element that she would have to prove from this "slander" is damages. How was she damaged? That is why people don't sue for gossip. She is not going to invest thousands of dollars in filing a lawsuit over this. I cannot possibly see any reputable attorney touching this. You are, pardon the pun, safe as kittens.
David C. Garner : Igoner it and it will blow over.
David C. Garner : I mean ignore it and it will blow over.
Customer: you are so sweet to help me...I can go to bed tonight thanks to you.... I really cannot thank you enough!
David C. Garner : Don't worry. She is blustering.
David C. Garner : Sleep well.
Customer: David, your the BEST....Lord Bless you and thank you! Good night! :)
David C. Garner : Take care!!
