I'm having yet another slow day of doing nothing but mindlessly filing. On the bright side, I've figured out why I have nothing to do - Attorney 6 is actually doing everything. Well, attempting to, at least.
Attorney 3 told me that, while they were all yelling at Attorney 6 the other day, Attorney 2 told him to give stuff to me if he was overwhelmed. Apparently, Attorney 2's quote was, "You need to pass some of this stuff on to D. He can do most of what you do faster than anyone in this office."
If I were Attorney 6, I wouldn't give me anything to do either. The guy must be scared to death that I'm going to take his job if it looks like he can't handle it. Unfortunately, I don't think that's something he needs to worry about.
Just so you don't think I'm lazy, I would actually ask for more stuff to do, but that's how I became "king of the closed files" a couple of years ago. Not making that mistake again.
