I fear the wrath of a man named Hardy
Earlier today at work, I had to deal with an extremely upset (and probably insane) man. "Crazy Guy" ended the conversation by calling me an idiot and saying that he was going to report me personally to the Attorney General of Oregon.
Well, this is certainly a first.
Apparently, the Attorney General is a man named Hardy Meyers. Fearing what guns Hardy will no break out in his relentless, Inspector Javert-esque pursuit of legal vengeance (*snicker*), I visited his department's website.
Aside from influencing state judicial controversies and being the target of the occasional Rajneesh bioterrorism/assassination plots, it seems that the AG serves as an all-purpose rant magnet for angry Oregonians. At the site, visitors can fill out official complaint forms against government agencies and businesses. The one that Crazy Guy is no doubt spent the better part of the day working on is located here.
I doubt Hardy will ever see it, but I may become a statistic. According to this, my industry received 242 complaints in the state of Oregon last year. When they update the list for 2004, my name may appear at the bottom alongside motorcycle sales companies and consumer credit agencies.
Beware! I am a public menace! Grrrrr!
