Lunch time

I'm sitting at my desk eating lunch, having edename (soy beans) and sushi. My boss comes in and grabs the bright green empty shells that I just spit out of my mouth and pops them in his mouth thinking that they were string beans or something. Then he spits them out all over my desk when he realizes that they taste like crap.

Yeah, I know, I should have warned him, but hey, it all just happened so fast and anyway, I wanted to see what happened first....yes, I'm so evil.....

No one ever says that attorneys are smart. The partner called me on the intercom just now and asked if the receptionist was out to lunch because he needed a file brought downstairs. I told him yes she is and he asked me if I would get him a certain file. Of course I did, but only after excusing myself from my client who was in the middle of discussing some pretty emotional stuff. I went downstairs with the file and nicely asked him why he didn't ask his secretary, who happens to be sitting in an office right next to him and he said, "Then she'll have to walk up and down the stairs." I gave him a deer in the headlights look and a tilt of my head and walked upstairs. You see, I, after all, had to walk down the stairs then back up them....what the heck?

A. I'm slightly perturbed that your boss had the audacity to just grab something off of your desk and pop it in his mouth. That is rude and that's what he gets.

B. I am REALLY perturbed at the other attorney who interrupted your meeting with your client and asked YOU to get the file for him when HE could have gotten off of his fanny and gotten it for HIMSELF. It's a unique concept I know but come on!!!

C. Girl, you need to move to Tennessee. We'll treatcha right down here. Well, maybe not...we still have major Good Ol' Boys mentality down here. Better stay where you are. I guess there are rednecks out there no matter where you go.

Uh, wha, huh? He just picked it up...and ewwww! And the other one just acted like you were his gopher...and uh, wha?

Great day - did I have that phrase in my list? - I am amazed at your patience. Then again, they probably offer hours of amusement. Silly billies!
