I'm meeting them.tomorow at noon, so far it seems like they won't cuz they are ignoring me and trying to say I didn't even drop off the pants , my my gf dropped off the stuff and pants were there and when I went to pick em up they were missing and I showed them and they took my number and marked on recipt that it's missing ! I Wana know how much can I ask them ? I duno the number I deserve and they deserve to pay
Expert:  Debra replied 1 year ago.

I know that you feel that they have handled this terribly. But, all you can really demand is what a court would order that you get paid. And, the court would order that you get paid for what it would cost to replace the pants. The Court may order a nominal fee for inconvenience but it would not be much more then a very nominal fee.

I'm sorry this happened to you and I'm sorry that I couldn't give you the answer you were likely hoping for but It will hurt you and not help you if I don't tell you the truth.

ya I did ask for pants cost but they didn't give it to me. That was the first week and they said owner til call me and now it's been 2 months , everytime I went there they said owner isn't there
Expert:  Debra replied 1 year ago.

I suggest that you have a letter ready for them. If they don't agree to pay for your pants hand them the letter. The letter will set out the facts and demand that they compensate you for the return for the replacement of the pants by a deadline that you set. Say that if they fail to comply you will commence legal proceedings but then will also be seeking damages for inconvenience and your legal costs.

Can it be just any printed letter ? I mean shouldn't it be like stamped letter by lawyer or court or something?
Expert:  Debra replied 1 year ago.

No. It is good enough for you to do your own letter. If you have to sue them in court and I can explain what to do later.

Ok I'll ask tomorow if I'll have to thanx tho
