Watch it, Attorney 6

Me: FYI, you're fucking this thing up pretty consistently.
Attorney 6: Oh shit!  I didn't know it was supposed to be done that way.
Me: It's probably not that big of a deal.  Just thought you'd want to know.
Attorney 6: Can you go through and fix everything I've fucked up for the past few months?
Me: ...I suppose I don't have a choice.  I thought I was doing something good by pointing this out.  That'll learn me.

Attorney 6: In case you don't have one, I just wanted to give you a copy of our procedures.  Some things have been slipping through the cracks and I want to make sure you're aware of anything new.  I've circled the part that you need to work on.
Me: The only thing circled is the part that you fucked up that I pointed out to you yesterday.
Attorney 6: Oh, is that what that is?
Me: Yes.
Attorney 6: Oh, well, you're fixing that, right?

Through a wall.  I swear to god I'm going to throw him through a wall.


  1. Wow. Low move by Attorney 6.

  2. Funny story, and even funnier in context: they hired Attorney 6 instead of promoting you. However big of an idiot he is, the bosses think he is superior to you.

    If he was fat, the whole story would be perfect.

  3. Your stories remind me of one of my worthless part-time jobs in law school.

    After being told by the attorney I worked with that he thought I was doing a great job on several occasions, I asked if he wouldn't mind writing a letter of recommendation for use after graduation. He said "Sure," but since he was busy for me to go ahead and draft it and he would look it over and sign it.

    So I did.

    Naturally, after I finished it, the ass flat out refused to even read it. Not, "Hey, sorry, I'll get to that later" rather "No, since I'm not going to sign it, I'm not going to waste my time reading it."

  4. Yeah, this is effectively a worthless part-time job...turned into a worthless full-time job.

  5. The reason that worthless part-time job mentioned above never turned into anything long term is because as soon as it became clear the jackass really wasn't going to read the recommendation letter he'd asked me to prepare, I left his office and gave the office manager notice on my way out the door.

    I left that part-time crap off my resume after graduation. However, I did count it as a good introduction to what sort of people I could look forward to working with in shit-law.
