Oh by the way…

One of my partner’s left for vacation today. In theory, my life gets to be a little easier for the next two weeks. At least, that is what I was hoping for until his first call into the office:

Partner: I forgot to finish the brief in the Smith v. Jones case. Please finish that for me.
Me: Which case?
Partner: Smith v. Jones. The appellate brief needs to get done and filed with the Court.
Me: Sure thing. When’s the filing deadline?
Partner: Today.
So much for life being easier. Especially when I find out that “finishing” the brief means “writing the whole thing from scratch.”

Tuesday sucks.
