“Tilting at Windmills”

  • November 2, 2008, 12:56pm

Wanted Don Quixote, newly qualified lawyer etc, willing to sue multi billionaire company for 50% of the award in a small claims court, has great advertising potential for a newbie, win or lose.

This Company is ripping off pensioners and the vulnerable by damaging private property and avoiding compensation.

Success potential and evidence good but obviously not guaranteed perfect,

Any offers of assistance welcome.

I think that actually "Tilting at Windmills" is something that most of us do at some time or other.Usually like Quixote not very successfully.

But it is always worth a try anyway, it is like a tilt at the establishment itself, perhaps you may not win, but you can very often tilt it just a little bit.

As a very wise man, my own Tutor and great friend said a long time ago, "Start at the top and work your way down, it is faster and far more efficient than beginning at the bottom and waiting forever for a result.

Gary's definition of Tilting at Windmills sounds very accurate to me.
I resigned from an English police force in 1971 after a very sucessful twelve years service, including eight commendations and the attaining of Royal Protection standard.
Gary's definition of "Pissing in the ocean." fits the situation perfectly.
Having recorded every situation of note for the whole of my service, in due course I obviously wrote the book.
Having seen the connection with the original Don Quixote I gave it the title "Tilting at Windmills."
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, showing much more appreciation than the establishment far below her in the pecking order of our nation, very kindly added a copy of "Tilting at Windmills" to her private library, and I have very carefully treasured the letter confirming this information.
