I just scheduled a consultation for tomorrow because this guy needed to reschedule and I don’t want to miss the chance to make $$.
It’s going to be a long day.
Two court hearings. Five consultations.
Attorney on docket: “Your honor, if I can take just a minute to explain why my client isn’t current…”
Me: *long dramatic groan*
Don’t worry – I was on mute.
Also “a minute” is really more like 5 fucking minutes of nonsense that doesn’t matter.
Also – when I hear cats meowing in the background of these phone hearings, it brings me much joy. I want to shout: Hi, kitty!
But I don’t, of course. lol
I got a call last night from a lady I used to work with at a different law firm. She wants to file bankruptcy. This is the note I wrote to myself:
My doc told me to take a rest day today, but this boss lady has shit to do. So my compromise is to work from bed, and maybe take a lunchtime nap.
Only three consultations stand between me and happy hour.
My hearings today…oof. I had three. The first one: the lady testifies that she is married and living with her spouse, despite the fact that she told me she was single/never married. The second one: I had to have my staff call him to tell him to call into the docket, despite having just reminded him last night. He told them he forgot. So then the Trustee swears him in, “Do you swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth?” His response? “I’ll do my best.” Motherfucker – what??? The trustee goes, “Um…okay,” and proceeds, which I thought was fucking nuts. If I were the Trustee, I would have been like, “This requires a yes or no answer, bro, and the options are yes or gtfo.”
I DON’T UNDERSTAND THESE PEOPLE.
My third hearing was fine. Thankfully.
I started my day by getting shampoo in my left eye, which burned like fucking fire, and resulted in a red, swollen, painful eye. That kind of set the tone for my day, tbh.
I can hear a cat meowing in the background of this phone hearing, and it is bringing me great joy.
is a bigger shit show than normal. People just cannot get their shit together. It is ridiculous and infuriating.
How is it this difficult to mute your fucking phone?
A couple of my bad ass female lawyer friends had a bunch of these made up and sent me one.
Leota has become my new go-to brand for work dresses. I was excited to finally snag the black sweetheart wrap with white polka dots. It had been sold out forever.
It came a few days ago. 😍
I’ve also been coveting the houndstooth version which always sells out before I can snag one. About a week ago, during a bout of insomnia, I decided to do a search to see if I could find it being sold elsewhere.
AND I DID! And in the weirdest place: the home shopping network! It gets better: these dresses run about $130 retail, but it was on clearance with HSN for $35. Motherfucking score!
It arrived today, and it’s gorgeous.
My collection is now up to 8. There is one dress not pictured below because it’s being washed. (I wore it yesterday).
I may be a little obsessed, but for good reason: these dresses are flattering, comfortable, and are made of wrinkle free fabric. 🥰
