ok call me an idiot. please. I deserve it. I am an idiot. so here is what happened: If you guys remember from a while ago, I have a lawyer website that is ranking for a few keywords in google. I was planning to either sell or rent this site to a lawyer. so I emailed a bunch of lawyers about it and not a single one got back to me. so finally, through a friend of a friend, I found a lawyer that was interested in the site. as a matter of fact, he told me he had visited the website a long time ago and wondered who owns it. he was glad to meet me and wanted to make a deal. so far so good. I went to his office today. he told me he would pay me a small monthly fee to maintain the site, and he will also pay me for every lead. "don't tell anyone though, paying for leads is against the rules and I could get in trouble" BUT! when I am nervous, I tend to joke around. so I said "I am going to report you to the bar. hehehe" so he started explaining how it's not illegal the way he does it, because blah blah blah. Then his personality completely changed and basically, he kicked me out. nicely though. but I am pretty sure he won't be working with me. And I can understand that. I wouldn't work with an asshole like myself either. Now, the thing is, I would never tell on anyone. I am not a little bitch. my cousin told me 4 years ago that he smokes but he didn't want his parents to know. I have kept this secret for 4 years. I know how to keep my mouth shut. do you guys know of any way that I could undo the damage? everything i can think of is likely to make things worse. so I dont know what to do.
