Training Ms. G

I am in the process of training Ms. G my job so that when I leave in two weeks, things won’t be in complete chaos. Ms. G is scared to death.  I have shielded my paralegals from Boss and his rants, but now that I will be leaving she is close to jumping off a […]

Fun With The UPS Lady

UPS Lady: “Hey, that’s a really nice pen!” Me: “Yeah? Thanks.” UPS Lady: “Don’t worry, though. I’m not going to steal it!” Me: “Oh- I didn’t think that.” UPS Lady: “No, for real. I don’t steal things.” Me: “That’s…good?” (By now I’ve finished signing, but she isn’t leaving.) UPS Lady: “My cousin once accused me […]

Fun With Clients

Ms. G, the other paralegal, comes into my office and asks for help.  She says there is a man in the front office who is angry and will not let her look through his bankruptcy worksheets before he leaves… Me: “Hi, I am Paralegal.  Can I help you?” Potential Client: “I need these filed  now.” […]

Two Week Notice

Well, my dear readers.  Today is a freakin glorious day.  I gave my two week notice to Boss. I will be working in a huge firm in the downtown area.  Still in the same area of law, but now on the creditors side and doing litigation for property tax.  I am not fond of litigation, […]

Fun With Boss

Boss is cussing up a storm, loudly in his office.  Normally, I would ignore this until he sticks his head out of his door and requests the honor of my presence.  However, since I now know that he has a gun in his desk, I don’t want to take the chance of him offing himself.  […]

Paralegal Advice?

I found this article and thought it was very honest, but there are tons of things I do not agree with.  My comments will be in bold.   Do Not Become A Paralegal  It is with the utmost respect for the profession and the professionals that I’ve met along the way as well as with the strictest reservation that […]

Fun With The Phone

Me: “XYZ Law, this is Paralegal.” Client: “Yes, I need the case number to my bankruptcy please.” Me: “Sure,  OK- do you have a pen handy?  I am ready to give you the number.” Client: “Ummm, what is a pen handy?” Good Freakin Lord… Paralegal

Before She Was Famous, What Would Erin Brockovich’s Blog Look Like??

I was thinking about this over the weekend. Before Erin Brockovich was famous, she was just like you and me.  A paralegal (or investigator) just trying to get through the day.  Trying to make ends meet by working for close to nothing in order to feed her kids. Let’s say before she became famous, she […]
