I have a lot of pet peeves, most of them to do with manners and personal hygiene but today's pet peeve is brought to us by none other than Mrs. I-Know-Everything.
Crazy as it may sound, I do have a little experience with my job. I've been doing the same thing for approximately 22 years. Suffice it to say, I think I've picked up a few pieces of knowledge along the way.
So when a client starts telling me this needs to be done and that should have been done before this was done and the Judge in that court can sign off on an order in that other court so we can keep moving along with our stuff. Dontcha know?
No. I don't know. What I DO know is this: we don't tell the court clerks or the judges what they are going to do and/or when they are gonna do it.
I play very nice with the clerks and their judges because you know why? Because at the end of the day, those folks can make my job very miserable and very non-productive. Kind of what Mrs. Know-It-All is doing to my billing hours* today.
