Mike Napoli, the catcher for the Texas Rangers, decided to cancel an autograph session for a friend two weeks before it was schedules.
Kind of a dick move, but no big deal right?
Well because of that, the friend wasted 4 grand on promotional things including baseballs for him to sign for customers, and because of that wasn’t able to stock his store for the holidays. Not only that, but people stopped going to his store and he lost a lot of business.
He had been friends with Mike since he was seven.
And now, the friend is now suing Mike for all the waste and lost business!
This is why you don’t do business with friends, and this is why you don’t buy $4 grand worth of stuff just because of a Texas Ranger catcher. On the flipside, getting sued is the reason you don’t cancel on your friend like a jerk.
Either way, not a good situation.
