I recently had occasion to pay a visit to your "Friend of the Court", Phillip George. I have never been treated so disrespectfully by any professional in my 60 years.
I went to see him about a concern regarding a warrant issued against my son and to see if a different payment arrangement could be established. It took three or four times telling the receptionist I wanted to see Mr. George, while she was on the phone to him in his office, telling her he didn't want to see me. Finally he did reluctantly come to the reception area with an attitude. He said he had heard all he wanted to hear about the situation, and he didn't want to hear anymore. I was not aware that the child's mother had been on the phone to him three times earlier with her concern about the warrant, only one of the things I wanted to discuss with him.
He then told me to leave his office or he was going to call the sheriff to have the arrest warrant reserved immediately. I was concerned about how my son would be able to make the payments. George said it wasn't his problem and again told me to leave his building or he was calling the sheriff to have me removed. And he started down the hall towards his office.
To his fleeing back, I told him I had never met such a cold-hearted, uncaring and uncompassionate human in my life. He repeated he was going to call the sheriff, as if he had been threatened or intimidated by a 60-year-old grandmother recoving from a triple bypass and three codes with oxygen over one shoulder and a cane to steady my balance and steps.
I left before being removed, but felt deep sympathy for Lebanon if that's the kind of public servant you have to deal with. My prayers to anyone who is under his uncaring control.
