Attorney 6 has a few annoying habits, but one of my least favorites is that he leaves files on my desk with a post-it that just says, "See me."
I'm even not sure why this pisses me off, but it does. It's a pretty reasonable request, I guess. "See me" regarding this file. What's so wrong about that? I mean, other than the fact that I'm being ordered around by someone who should be my clerk....though, come to think of it, that's definitely part of the problem.
Anyway, another part of the problem goes back to when I was in school. I was never very academically inclined, so I constantly got tests, quizzes and homework assignments back with a giant, red, "See Me!" written across the top.
Let me tell you, nothing good ever came from a test with "See Me!" written on it. Inevitably, I got a lecture about how I clearly hadn't been paying attention in class, that I wasn't working up to my potential, and that school was too important to blow off. Never, in twenty years of schooling, was "See Me!" followed by a congratulatory speech about how well I'd done on an assignment.
Those experiences must have stuck with me, because a note saying "See Me" still pisses me off. I know Attorney 6 probably just wants me to explain something to him (so that he doesn't have to ask Attorney 3) but I still see the note and start seething. I might want to get this under control before I blow up based on a post-it.
On the bright side, at least he's not doing it in red pen.
