Just when you want the earth to open up and swallow you

I was taking a client to deposit her settlement check last week. This client is nice, old lady from the old country far away. That doesn't necessarily control what she says or how loud she says it.

We are walking to the bank, surrounded by people of every race, creed and variety, when out of nowhere my client, blurts out just a little too loudly in accented English: "I am not racist, but I don't like *******"

I thought for sure the next headline was going to read "Elderly woman gets ass kicked, her lawyer bribes mob with settlement check".

Clients are awesome. Not.
