Me: “XYZ Law Firm, this is Paralegal.”

Client: “Paralegal, I am at my hearing and there is no one here.”

Me: “Well, Mr. Annoying, that is probably because your hearing isn’t until next month.”

Client: “Nope.  I got a letter and it said that it was today. I took off work and I’ll be damned if I have to do this again.  Can you call the Judge and see what went wrong- I know the hearing is today.”

Me: “Mr. Annoying, there is no way I can call the Judge.  She doesn’t seem to answer my phone calls.  Do you have the letter with you?”

Client: “Yep.  I’ll read it to you.. Blah, Blah, Blah, hearing set for August 21, 2010.”

Me; “Ok, now re-read that date again to me.”

Client:”What? Ok.. August 21, 2010.”

Me: “Mr. Annoying, do you have any idea what the date is today?  It is July 29th, 2010.”  “Your hearing is set for NEXT MONTH.”

Client: “Well, I guess I read it wrong.  I don’t want to take another day off.  What should I do?”

Me: “Well, I suggest going in to work, explaining to your boss that you got your dates mixed up and take the right day off next time.”

Client: “Paralegal, that is a good idea.  Hey- could you call my boss for me and explain?”

Me: “No sir, that is not something I will do.”

Client: “Ok, so should I show up on August 21st instead?”

Me: “That would probably be a really good idea.”

God, it’s only 9:00 am.  This is going to be a long day.


SHOUT OUT to Grumpy- Happy Birthday Grumpy.  I hope you don’t have a day in Paralegal Hell today!
