I stumbled across it on FB last night courtesy of a Jackeen cousin: https://www.facebook.com/julie.feely.39/posts/940274099320543

Let me know if you can't see it, and I'll post the text.

Cheers, Laurie.

The lottery company also offers "financial advice" to te winners.  They'll need it!

So it is a big deal for the store. A few more generous store owners will share that money with the clerks that sell the tickets.

As for having too much money, not to worry, by the time the tax accounts get done with it, the prize will be considerably reduced. In fact it would not surprise me if somehow they end up owing money.

It doesn’t.

 

Beautiful.

Comment on How not to pay water charges by volker Krauleidis http://headrambles.com/2014/07/28/how-not-to-pay-water-charges/#comment-51249 Mon, 29 Sep 2014 11:37:26 +0000 http://headrambles.com/?p=7015#comment-51249 A contract can be either an express contract or an implied contract. An express contract is one in which the terms are expressed verbally, either orally or in writing. An implied contract is one in which some of the terms are not expressed in words.

Implied in fact or implied in law

An implied contract can either be implied in fact or implied in law. A contract which is implied in fact is one in which the circumstances imply that parties have reached an agreement even though they have not done so expressly. For example, by going to a doctor for a physical, a patient agrees that he will pay a fair price for the service. If he refuses to pay after being examined, he has breached a contract implied in fact.

Quasi-contract

A contract which is implied in law is also called a quasi-contract , because it is not in fact a contract; rather, it is a means for the courts to remedy situations in which one party would be unjustly enriched were he or she not required to compensate the other. For example, an unconscious patient treated by a doctor at the scene of an accident has not agreed (either expressly or by implication) to pay the doctor for emergency services, but the patient would be unjustly enriched by the doctor's services were the patient not required to compensate the doctor.

Courts in Ireland will most likely see the use of the water service (conduct) as acceptance. That's why I am not overly optimistic. People with low income will not reach the European Court of Justice …
