Things To Do At Work When You Are Bored

Enjoy! Blink wildly and then close your eyes really tight for an interesting light show (Amusement Potential: 1-5 minutes) See a variety of blobs, stars and flashes. Try to make out shapes and see if your subconscious is trying to send you a message (perhaps that funny shape is saying, ‘send all your money to […]

Passing The Buck

                Lawyers are experts at delegating. Don’t believe that? Just try to get a lawyer to do something and you’ll soon see it delegated to no less than two people. Lawyers get their first taste of delegation early on in their careers. It starts out as getting one […]

The Good Ol’ Bus

                      For paralegals,  getting thrown under the bus ranks somewhere on the scale between daily and weekly. If  a paralegal is not currently being thrown under the bus, you can rest assured that: 1.) they will soon be under the bus or 2.) they are […]

Please Consider The Environment

Admirals at the Death Star have horrible e-mail signatures. Not that anyone has a good e-mail signature to begin with. Admirals like to add “Please consider the environment before printing this email” to the end of their message as part of their signature. It’s often embellished with webdings and colored green to bring attention to […]

The Difference of Fridays Between Employed and Unemployed

                Happy Friday Everyone! PH

Saying The Opposite

            It is well known that paralegals on the Death Star like to express the opposite of what they truly mean. For example, “You’re working on the next two months dockets” is met with: “Awesome, that is going to be so much fun.” As much “fun” as working on a […]

Reason Number 1 On Why I Stopped Teaching

I have had a lot of email recently asking me if I would ever go back to teaching.  The short answer is HELL NO. For the most part, I loved my students, my fellow teachers across the hall and of course, the number of days off.  But the allmighty TAKS test is what keeps me […]

White Girl Drunk

So,  I heard a new slogan today from the two interns talking by my cubicle. Intern 1: ” Girl, I need to get out and have fun tonight.” Intern 2: ” Me too.  You want to go dancing?” Intern 1: “Hell ya.  Let’s get white girl drunk tonight.” Intern 2:  Laughs- “Hell ya!” Ok- maybe […]
