Rules change in midgame

I need to blow off some steam. The lady at the Edwardsville law office that is the trustee for St. Clair County, which I have been giving money to for the past six months, told me she had the authority to give me an additional two months to make all the required payments on property taxes. This is the seventh month and we are in it by seven days. The bill I just received from her states that if I do not pay all of the balance due in the next eight days, they will consider the money I have paid during the past six months as liquidated damages.

They will do anything to steal a man’s property. Cotton-pickin Mafia criminals.
