These couple of utter cowboys fully deserve a proper good cunting.
The parking charge notice business is highly lucrative. If the parking company can”t get the money from you, they hand the collection of the penalty over to a bunch of dubious cunts like Gladstones solicitors . Shopping centres, hospitals in England, hotel car parks, off street residential and many more places these venal wankers are filling their boots.
Anyhow, cunt here gets a ticket off Gemini parking at a hospital car park. I have had a few over the years, I never respond. I have never been pursued except in this one case.
Gladstones cunts send the usual pay in 14 days or else bollocks letter that goes in the recycling. Then the letter from the small claims court in Northampton. I of course co operate fully with the court, file my defence and offer mediation. Cunt Gladstone are not willing to mediate, so a date is set for a county court hearing. Two weeks before the hearing a representative from Gladstones cold calls my mobile number to extract money from me by offering a compromise. When I ask the cunts how they got my mobile number, they said it was from the court papers. It wasn’t because I put my landline number on the fucking things. Two days later a letter drops through the door saying they got my mobile number from an experian credit check they did.
On the day of the hearing, I report my attendance to the usher, as soon as I turn around to park my arse on a seat, a young man introduces himself as the representative working on behalf of Gladstones. He is not a low rent solicitor, but a QC.
He wants to have an informal chat, I oblige. He starts running through the claimants case evidence, which I and the court already have been sent. I have not sent any evidence to the court. I check that his photographic evidence is the same as mine and I point out the errors. He says that he can’t argue with it and berates the incompetence of Gladstones and Gemini. Whilst waiting to be called we sit together having civil conversation. Once called, we are out of the court in less than10 minutes, he goes his way with his fee in pocket and I fuck off home. It cost me £1.52 in postage to the small claims court and about 2 hours of my life. Gladstones have shelled out £25 at the small claims court, £60 at the county court, the QC”s fee, at least £200 and a few quid in postage. All because some fucking spastic working for Gemini can’t take a photograph of the correct car and no cunt at Gladstones checked the photos.
I still can’t work out why any silly wanker would ever pay a parking charge notice issued by these legalised nefarious fuckwits.
