taking someone to small claims court for a bill of sale is way over the top. this fucking country has become so sue happy these days. i mean come in, whatever happened to talking things out? the response that he sent you isnt mean or condescending, if it were me, my response would have been a hell of a lot wordier. if you can drive to him and get the bill of sale, than do it. if not, write it up yourself, forge his signature and call it a day.
but i swear to god, if you take him to small claims court for a fucking bill of sale, i will make it my goal to have everyone make fun of you until the day you die. you sue for custody, you sue if someones insurance refuses to pay out, you dont sue for something that is free. why spend 2000 in court costs just to have a judge laugh at you?
