O Dear Lord, please help me make it through the day…

I asked an Intern to draft a Verified Continuance, then email it to me and I’ll proof it and send it on to the “powers that be”.  The Intern asked if she could print it from her computer first, to proofread before sending it to me.  Of course!

Then, she stated she was out of paper, what should she do?  I told her to just use the printer paper in the workroom.

The Intern got up, got 1 sheet of printer paper and made 50 copies of the blank page.

    Oww….  Where do you find these interns?  Stupid-R-Us?  Bob’s House of Morons?  Seriously.  That easily makes my top 5.

    Is this a law student intern or a paralegal intern? Because if it’s the former, then well sure, that’s not only the future it’s also the present of the profession.

    It is just a freshman in college who needs a summer job while home.
    The Death Star has no screening process when it comes to interns. If you have a pulse, you are hired.
    Thank God, because I could seriously write another blog just about the interns alone.

    No. Way.  Better keep the white out from her or your computer screens will all be opaque.

    That almost as bad as the paralegal that I work with asking me to read her something from a paper that was ON HER DESK!

    She needs 50 pages for a continuance?

    With this intern, I am shocked she didn’t need 100 :)

    One word per page, with a really long style?
