I'm a closet tree-hugger. You wouldn't know it unless you've known me for a while, but I'm actually quite concerned about saving the planet and all that nature stuff.
That being said, I get annoyed by all of the paper wasted by lawyers.* So, I usually try to decrease the amount of paper I use and it pisses me off when people seem to go out of their way to spite me.
Before I file a complaint, I email the whole thing (six pages) to our client for review. Then, all they need to do is send two signature pages back to me. I don't need the rest of the document. I will never use the extra copy.
Yesterday, I emailed a client twenty complaints. In my email, I specifically said that I DO NOT NEED all twenty complaints mailed back to me; just the signature pages would be fine.
What do I get in the mail today? Twenty full complaints.
In case you didn't do the math, that's a total of 120 pages. Forty of which I needed, 100 of which I'm going to throw away. My inner tree-hugger is very pissed off right now.
*Seriously, unless you've spent some time in a law office, you have no conception of how much paper can be wasted in a single day. It is appalling.
