In my mind I'm thinking, "Why?!" Way did you wait until the 11th hour to answer your complaint? Was it because your dog ate your homework? Was it because you had to take your kids to soccer practice everyday, all day? Was it because you had to stop to make your husband another sandwich? Was it because your mother-in-law dropped by to give you yet another #%@#!%^@# tip on how to be a better wife to her baby boy and mother to her grandchildren? Was it because you just didn't think it was all that important until your pooka casually suggested (because that's how they roll) you get on over to the law library to get information on how to file your answer?
If you ever find yourself in a similar bind, don't wait to get help - run (as in RUN FAST) to your nearest county law library and let your local county law Librarian help you find what you need LOOOOOOOOOOOONG before you need it.
