For our son's 2nd birthday party, my wife ordered cupcakes from a bakery online for delivery to our son's daycare but they didn't show up. My wife was crushed and was understandably angry at the bakery, especially since she said she had paid for the cupcakes. But when I tried the online ordering form, there was no place to input any payment information. However, after submitting the form the company says it would get in contact for confirmation and payment information. It looks like the company didn't follow up with my wife, but also that my wife didn't follow up with the company. Is someone clearly at fault? How should I handle both my wife and the company?

I got into an accident with another motorist. She side swiped my car and then hit a electric post. She failed to yield and was found to be at fault. Now the electric company is asking for $10k to repair the pole damage from me. Without having property damage insurance, and living in a no fault state, is there anything I can do?

I bought a pair of glasses and the lenses have been very poorly fitted, if the opticians give me hassle, is it possible to get MasterCard to force them to refund me? [more inside]

If you rear-end someone in Washington State are you automatically "at-fault". [more inside]

This intermittent fault on our small company network makes me bang my head on the wall. Metafilter: help me troubleshoot this annoyance.
Roughly once a day at no particular time I get the classic windows 'A network cable is unplugged' balloon appear on my desktop. About 50% of the time, this affects the rest of the 20-odd staff in the office and at least one person will lose some work due to application failure or somesuch. [more inside]

I was in a car accident about four years ago where I rear-ended another vehicle. AFAIK, it was my fault, but no one seemed injured at the time, and now I'm being sued for thousands more than my liability auto insurance will cover. If they are awarded what they're asking through arbitration or through a judgement, what are my options for paying the portion which my insurance won't cover? Background and other related questions inside. [more inside]

Someone in my immediate family was involved in a car accident today on a highway, and he was in the wrong (though no alcohol or drugs were involved). Not only that, but the other driver was killed, and he is probably going to be charged. He is traumatized, extremely distressed, in a bad state mentally. My question is for advice from anyone who has dealt with this kind of situation.
