Asshole neighbors are the best

gargoyle.jpgAcross the pond, Alan Corner spent about £50 to purchase two gargoyles to put on his roof after he finished restoring it. His neighbor, Mark Goodman, was worried that the gargoyles would fall off, and so he sued Corner. After a long court battle, Goodman won, proving that the gargoyles were safe. But thanks to a British requirement, because Goodman didn’t go to mediation before going to court, he not only has to pay his £20,000 in legal fees, but he has to pay half of Goodman’s £37,000.

So two £25 pound gargoyles and an asshole neighbor wound up costing Corner almost forty thousand quid. Fucking bummer. No wonder this gargoyle, which is one of the two Corner put up, looks so perturbed:

"Heads we win, tails you lose" - I do love a punter for whom it is "a matter of principle", and bugger the money.

Correction: Corner won.
