Attorney 5 requested that I proofread a brief for him. Attorney 5 actually writes quite well and proof reading his stuff is usually pretty easy. Today things turned out a little differently:
Me: I finished proof reading your brief.
Attorney 5: Thanks.
Me: Um...weird question. Are you trying to do something different with the Statement of Facts? It doesn't read like your usual stuff does and...(insert tactful comments about how this section of the brief appears to have been written in crayon).
Attorney 5: Heh. It's interesting that you noticed that.
Attorney 5: I didn't write it. Attorney 2 did.
Me: Um...you know parts of that section sound absolutely ridiculous.
Attorney 5: Yes.
Me: As long as we're on the same page.
Attorney 2 is my boss.
