does not have a suit. We are down to 20 days. And if he shows up in overalls…there will be an eruption of volcanic proportions and its damages will far exceed that of Mount Vesuvius.
I hate when someone starts a story and I think it’s going to be funny and I laugh only to find out the story isn’t funny at all and is a little depressing.
1. People who do not rsvp by the deadline.
2. People who do not rsvp because they think I know they are coming. Of course I knew you were coming, that is why I sent you a rsvp card with a stamp on it. [hint the sarcasm]
3. People who do rsvp back but are bringing along a guest when I specifically did not denote “and guest.”
… That starts off with “This may sound like a conspiracy theory but…”

I have been waiting since 5:00 for him to get off work. I had big plans. Go for a walk. Have dinner. Maybe a movie. But it’s past 7:00, thundering and lightening, and he is still stuck at the hospital.
rdm: I’m pretty sure my resident hates her family.
me: maybe she doesn’t have one.
rdm: She has kids…bad ones I presume.
rdm: I’m going to rant for about 10 minutes when I come home. Get ready.
rdm: Might want to hide the printer too. Staples won’t exchange ones I punch.
The other day I complained about an attorney that complained about something he did. When I told him that via telephone message, he sent me an email full of exclamation marks but lacking in legal authority and clearly apparent he had done absolutely no research on the topic.
I, of course, had spent a day boiling over this crazy attorney and was prepared to give at least SIX citations that would clearly show him how wrong he was. But after talking with my legal buddy, we decided that I should not being doing his work and let him waste his clients money. (Though I am worried about the cost on our side of dealing with another lawsuit from this kid. This would be lawsuit number 2 and we have a legitimate one we are about to submit)
But I had to talk to this kid again today but I had my boss with me. Kid would not agree to our mediator but whatever, we won’t get that far. He then brought up this second lawsuit — he just does not get the picture. My boss explained to him that he had no claim in the most diplomatic way, explained the law (without the citations, though I had them ready in hand), but this kid was adamant that he was right and even if the law said that, that it wasn’t right.
After discussing this forever, he then gave his whole spiel again on his first lawsuit. I have heard it THREE times now. It is verbatim each time. I could probably recite it myself. He did not like our answers and so he resorted to calling us shameful, unreasonable and ridiculous. My boss handled it exceptionally well.
This attorney is my age but he is far from being a good, mature attorney, hence the reason I call him kid. He went to a not so good law school, one reason he is not so good. And he is not very ethical, since he has already harmed his client more than he has done him any good and he is charging him an arm and a leg for it. After this conversation, my boss said something about this kid’s age and inexperience as well. He pointed out that though this kid and I are the same age, I am far better than he is. Well, I would hope so!
and of course I slammed my head into my desk today. I’m a little concerned I broke my nose. It hurts, but I can’t determine if it’s my head or nose or if I’m imaging symptoms. My doc is still recovering from being on call, so I’ll have a more definitive answer later…he is dead to the world.
1. Dealt with one attorney who has a history of sleeping with his clients
2. Was threatened by another attorney for something he did
How do these people pass the bar?

34 days! It creeped up on me so fast! But I just have a few things left to do…programs, marriage license, transportation when leaving, and few little other things. I’m at the point where I’m ready to be married and to be on the honeymoon!
I hope you are doing well! Paris will be here before you know it :)
pumpkin season is here!!! which means my wedding day is fast approaching. so much to do!

when you have a fiance who feeds your addiction by sending you photos. in my case, it’s a lovely pair of shoes.
