The saga continues with the broker who sold us our dog; it’s come to an interesting point where I’m unsure that we can mediate a solution, though I’ve tried over a dozen times,
By May 23rd I had not heard a response from him, and sent him a text letting him know that I would be moving forward with my legal direction. He called late in the afternoon a few times while I was in a meeting, and I sent him a text notifying him that he can email or text me, or I will call him later.
At 4:29 pm, May 23rd, Randy called me and this time I picked up. He had heard about this website, and was extremely angry that I would make this information public. I noted I am attempting to document the factual information of the incident, and would be happy to take down any information he viewed as personal. He continued to press his distaste for this site, and I commented that he seemed more angry about this website than what he’s done to my family over the past few weeks; in fact, it was the first time he initiated a phone call to me without me first trying to contact him since May 13th. I reiterated that I am more than happy to work with him to mediate payment, but as I’ve said the past two weeks repeadetly, he needs to be in contact with me frequently that he is working on it and finalize some financial reimbursement plan in the near future. He finalized his conversation with the following quote:
“@$#% you, I’m threw with you, you don’t even know me, I don’t even know you. I wouldn’t make a threat and I don’t like to make threats or anything, but you should watch your back, you never know who you could be @$#% with and when you walk home, you could get @$#% hurt or something.”
I began to comment, when he hung up the phone.
By this time, Kattya and I spoke on the phone and agreed to meet this evening to settle our differences. Before we met, Randy Vo called back at 5:32 pm— this time I put it on speakerphone with an employee in earshot, and let Randy know he was on speakerphone. Randy expressed his financial status again, and I repeated the need for frequent communication to work out a plan, and expect him to plan a path in the near future. He noted that he can get emotional and that it “happens sometimes, I really shouldn’t have made a comment like that”. I told him I understood the emotional stress of the situation although it wasn’t appropriate at this time, and am happy to continue to mediate as much as possible and we should talk about it another time.
