I am paranoid about some possible legal ramifications coming my way from a misunderstanding. I just accepted a pizza and signed the receipt, in my own name, thinking that my roomate had ordered it and left. Unfortunately, it was my neighbors who gave the wrong address and I just spoke
with them. They tried to accuse me of signing their name on the receipt but I had to set them straight on that. Anyway, i had just woken up from a nap and was entirely too passive about it.
Can I get into trouble because of this???[/quote]
depends on the state you are in
but probably NO, it is the delivery guy who screwed up.
and the neighbours giving the wrong address, well that is their fault
and you can take action against them with the “they set me up” defense/attack
furthermore, it could have been considered a gift to you, for reasons unknown
basically they should not have a leg to stand on
nevertheless, I would try to make it up to them somehow, because they are neighbours, and fighting with neighbours stinks, I’d make it up 110% and then you’ll have some good relations with them, rather than start a big fight over it
