I needed to find out information about filing a small claims suit, so I called the county number listed in the phone book under "Small Claims Court". After I found out the procedure, she told me that I'd have to come in to get the paperwork, as she couldn't start it over the phone.
Me: OK, where do I go to?
Small Claims Clerk: Here.
Me: Where is here?
SCC: The court building
Me: Where is the court building?
SCC: On Ritchie Highway.
Me: Where on Ritchie Highway? (Ritchie runs for about 20 miles between Baltimore and Annapolis.)
SCC: Near Fountain Blue.
Me: Ok, what's the name of the building?
SCC: Name? It doesn't have a name.
Me: It must have a name. How else can people find it?
SCC: No, it definitely doesn't have a name.
Look, I'm not asking if it's name is Fred or James or Tom. What is it called?
SCC: It's just the court building. It doesn't have a name.
Ok. Outside the court building there is a sign. What does the sign say? Does it say District Court, or County Court, or what?
SCC: Oh! It says County Courthouse.
Me: Thank you.
