In the jailhouse now…

It seems that there has been a trend beginning for who is calling my number

Caller: I was being taken to jail and I tripped and I hurt my knee, I want to sue.
Me: When did this happen?
Caller: July 2007.
Me: I’m sorry, your claim is barred by the statute of limitations.
Caller: Well that’s a bitch!
Later on…
Caller: I want to sue for the death of my child.
Me: What happened.
Caller: Well, I was charged with her murder in 1999 but I was acquitted…
Me: [Hangs up the phone]
And finally…a client calls
Client: I want to get a status on my case.
Me: We’ll, we haven’t heard from you in a long time.
Client: That’s because I’ve been incarcerated.
Me: That’s what we’ve heard.
Client: So how’s the case going?
Me: Not going well. Since you are in jail, you haven’t been able to go to the insurance company’s doctor for an examination. The insurance company won’t pay you any money until you go to their doctor. When are you getting released?
Client: 2014.
Me: That’s a problem.
Client: Well, can you send me a loan?
I am all about winners.
