"sports" (cuz it's so sporting to hunt down the neurologically disadvantaged & rope them into 3 years, with a recurring, automatic renewal for 3 years at a time clause!!!!) club & i told them that he as mentally disadvantaged; that he hadn't understood the 'fine print'; lol; cuz he was actually incapable of such a thing :D
'hire a lawyer' they told me.... i pointed out that he had signed on the dotted line a few weeks before his 18th birthday.... i heard a gasp; then i was put on hold.... then 'get a lawyer' i was told.... so we didn't fight... a lawyer?!?! seriously??? a few grand to fight a few grand in 'international' (lol) 'Sports' (lol) club fees?? so.....
a few months before the contract ran out... (Which I was on top of; cuz there's only 1 way to cancel that 'automatic 3 year renewal' thing he signed up for.... and that's to send in the cancellation notice EXACTLY- to the hour & day- of a certain length of time before it automatically renews..... (READ YOUR CONTRACT!! IT BLOWS!!) anyway, my son moved in with my brother in anchorage, AK, to start work on the pipeline....
i brought "I" (lol) "S" (lol) C his membership card (required in their fine print) alaska driver's licence (required in their fine print), a check stub form his job in alaska (required in his fine print), his rent receipt from his apt in alaska (a bonus i graciously provided), along with the IN code on signing minors up & legal precedents saying I(lol)S(lol)C was in violation of the law & the standards of decency )again; i was kind enough to clue them in)......
& it all scared the kid behind the desk.... & he said he'd get his boss to call me.... NOPE!! i went in there the next day, 'GET A F****KIN LAWYER!!' he told me. since my LD, mentally challenged kid, that couldn't understand the fine print enough to decipher the fine print.... & since he didn't "own property" in Alaska, he was still locked in.
i am still homicidally pissed..... so!! if you're looking for a place that preys on the handicapped, look no further!! they got a pool!! moving to Alaka?? cool!! you still have to make payments on your contract!! they will sue you otherwise!!! motherf*ckers!!!!
