> proving me wrong in my assessment of your empathy towards kids
Me? I'm a natural with kids. But I ain't gonna take no Beverly Hills Santa Claus attitude toward them. If Perciever were suing some dirt-poor mother of 7 kids for spilling coffee on his suit, and then demanding treble damages when the the mother had no funds for the court to collect, and then demanding that the court repossess everything she owned from her black-and-white TV to the children's winter socks... then I might have something like this "empathy" you mention. But Perciever is obviously not dealing with some impecunious beggar. He's dealing with a VP or executive. So the trauma thrown upon the boss's kid is more likely to be "Sorry, son, Daddy needs to tighten the belt. So you can have the late-model Ferrari, but without the options."
