    An expensive dinner...

    Citing a "code of honor" acquired during 26 years in the Air Force, retired pilot Ralph Paul, 54, decided in March that he would not pay for the $15.99 Shrimp and Scallop Verdura at Angellino's restaurant in Palm Harbor, Fla., because it contained only five small shrimp and five scallops. After he complained unsuccessfully and walked out, the restaurant sent sheriff's deputies after him, and he was charged with misdemeanor fraud. Paul insisted to a St. Petersburg Times reporter that he couldn't look himself in the mirror if he had paid, or even negotiated a settlement, so he hired a $500-an-hour New York lawyer and, in a one-day trial in October before a restive jury, he was acquitted. [St. Petersburg Times, 10-5-06]

    Hmm, let's see...$500.00 X 8 hrs. + $15.99 = $4,015.99
    Wow!!! ..Over 4,000 bucks for a seafood dinner!!
    This poor dude would have been better off if he'd of swallowed his pride, walked out of the restaurant and chalked it up as just another bad experience in a Florida restaurant.

    And no you can't have any.
