Protest Play by Play Part Deuce

Well … I am sure you are all on the edge of your seats after having read pre-protest prepping and part Uno Protest Play by Play

Awaiting my verdict … Which is guilty as charged

Guilty of being all that

And a bag of chips

And of course I MUST drag this on

A story is not complete without some flourish

Setting: Bexar County Appraisal District (BCAD)

Cast of characters:  ME – J-Dub, two couples: one elderly and one middle aged, one single lady (Beyonce song now on a loop in my brain) and patrolman in uniform.

I enter like a Looney Tunes’ Tasmanian Devil after parking albeit in a place I should not have parked … which was at the vascular clinic across the street because there were no spaces to be had in the BCAD parking lot.  I did not want to be late because heaven forbid I miss my chance.  I check in and immediately start chatting it up with the cast of characters.  I do that when I am nervous and I was nervous.

We cracked the code fairly quickly.  Once someone from the back went to the window, they got a packet and a name was called and back you went.  The time they give you is only a window.  One is taken back based on time of check-in.  Two folks got into a little scuffle when a 9:45 appointment went back before a 9:30 appointment. I was tempted to leave more than once. But I am no quitter.

The hearing is in front of a panel.  The panel is comprised of three community members.  Regular Joe’s and Josette’s.  And one BCAD employee.

Wait! Actually I may just need to leave you in suspense

I signed settlement agreement after all

Or, this house is clean as the Poltergist medium – Zelda would have said

Did you know?

  • The world is small.  I mean really tiny. Turns out I went to school with the BCAD employee who heard my case.  8th grade class of 1979!  Woo Hoo St. Margaret Mary Eagles.
  • Turns out one of the panel members knows a friend of my in-laws.

Anyhoo, suspense is over!  We won!  Now just how much this lowers our actual taxes remains to be seen.

As always, more to come.
