COLLIN COUNTY, TX – When the average person gets a call from a debt collector, they ignore it.

When David E. Mack of Collin County, Texas gets a call from a debt collector, he sues.

Mack alleges that First Financial Asset Management Inc. call him one morning back in March, but Mack missed the call because he was using the potty.

In his defense, no one likes to be bothered on the toilet.

Mack is sighting he never gave the company consent to call his cell phone and that the call was “harassing and abusive.”

Or maybe, Mack, you just don’t want to pay the $145 you supposedly owe the city of Dallas.

Here’s one more to add to the list of silly lawsuits.
