One of the attorneys (the one who I work directly under) has been directing the secretaries to scan her appellate orders directly into our network as soon as they're filed, so she can access them at any time. (Does this sound impressive? I have no idea what it means). So anyway, I guess one of the secretaries has been scanning and e-mailing it to the other who is supposed to be putting it on the network, but they hate each other. So somewhere along this chain of events that are supposed to take place, someone isn't doing what they're supposed to be doing (shocker, doesn't this sound like every workplace?). And everyone is pointing fingers to each other. (Think "I scanned it and e-mailed it, SHE didn't put it on the network" vs. "I never got this e-mail" vs "You never gave me this" vs. "You never told me to do this", etc.).
The attorney I work under is leaving on Wednesday morning to go on vacation for a week, so I was in her office yesterday afternoon getting the instructions for what I'm supposed to be working on while she's gone. She's looking through the network for the scanned copy of the appellate order that is supposed to be only a click away....
any guesses on whether or not the order was on the network?
She says to me "Excuse me, I need to speak to someone about this," picks up the phone, and the next thing I hear is:
"WHO DO I HAVE TO FUCK OR KILL AROUND HERE TO GET A DAMN APPELLATE ORDER SCANNED?!"
ooooohwheeeee I'm glad I am not the one in charge of the scanning. yikes.
