Sometimes, I feel like I should make a list of "things I'm not" and distribute it to everyone I know. For instance, I am not sympathetic to any problems arising out of the hiring of Attorney 6. I don't know why Attorney 3 chose to have the following conversation with me, but she did.
Attorney 3: Oh my god, I just don't understand how he's having so much trouble.
Me: Yeah, that's a tricky one.
Attorney 3: He just keeps making the same mistakes over and over again.
Attorney 3: I mean, like, a monkey could do his job!
Me: I know.
Attorney 3: Do you know how many hours of my day I spend trying to walk him through things again and again?!?
Me: If only there had been a simple way to avoid that problem...
"Things I'm not" is definitely going to be a recurring topic on my blog.
