My attorney friend and I both got an email from another attorney stating that she’s so happy we agreed to speak at next month’s Female Bankruptcy Attorney seminar and asking if we had decided upon a topic yet. She then asked us to forward our outline so she could get it approved for CLE credit by the bar association. I immediately got a second email from attorney friend asking, “Did you agree to do this because I know I didn’t?” Nope. Sure didn’t agree to do it or ever even agree to think about doing it, but apparently the chief judge wants us to do it so… Guess we better come up with a topic this weekend.
I can finally share my exciting law firm news: we are expanding! We plan to open an office in Kansas City by the end of the year. There has been a lot of planning involved, and there is a lot of work left to do, but Scott and I are very excited. We just told the staff today and they are (for the most part) very excited as well. Yay for new adventures!
because I’ve been biting my tongue all morning. So far I have refrained from going off on:
- a court clerk
- a prosecutor
- my employees
All of whom have deserved my wrath on this fine fucking day.
I am definitely practicing patience and kindness today.
Oh and tomorrow? Tomorrow is going to suck hella fucking hard. I have a case on the docket tomorrow morning that is so fucked I can’t even…
This is why so many attorneys are alcoholics.
*EPIC FUCKING SIGH OF FRUSTRATION*
is when people ask for advice, which you give, and then they get upset with you because it isn’t what they wanted to hear.
Don’t shoot the motherfucking messenger. Geez.
The icing on the cake? When it was FREE legal advice.
Today is Admin Professionals Day and since I couldn’t be in the office, I sent each of our three legal assistants a flower arrangement. They were apparently just delivered and my partner texted me: You’ve got a bunch of chicks here in near tears 😊.
These ladies are so very fabulous and it’s my job to make sure they know how much I appreciate them. I love making them happy.
which really just means I’ll be working from home until Tuesday.
Whatevs. I’ll take what I can get.
