LSAT Prep Question

In honor of my LSAT, I bring you a logical reasoning problem about an attorney I used to work with.

I worked with an attorney at Litigation firm that was smart. A pain in the ass most days, but very smart.  This attorney used to abuse the staff and didn’t care. (I swear, Friday afternoon 4:45, he would bring you  500 pages of documents he wanted Bates Stamped and copied.  And there were staples every 5 pages. )
This attorney loved to go to trial. Probably because he was bullied in school, so he gets to make up for it in the courtroom.  Because he made lots of money for the firm, he was usually handed the tough cases and was in court most of the time (when he wasn’t in the office being a total bitch).  He was set for a new trial, which took place about 50 miles away from our firm.
The morning of the third day at trial, he spilled coffee on his suit. Which of the following is a logical conclusion that can follow the situation above?
(A) He sends it out for dry cleaning at his hotel that has a 24/7 cleaning service.
(B) He buys another suit.
(C) He just wears the same suit he did the day before.
(D) He asks his wife to FedEx him another suit.
(E) He calls Paralegal and says “I spilled coffee on my suit. I need you to drive 50 miles and bring me another suit. Tonight.”

Correct answer would be (E).

Why is (E)  the correct answer?
Reason (A) is too easy and too fucking logical.
Reason (B) would be a strain on his salary.
Reason (C)  He only brought one suit to this town to cover him for a week-long trial.
Reason (D) He is single.  There is no woman alive that would marry this man.
Therefore, the only logical answer is (E).
