I encountered serious levels of stupidity and incompetency today ... as well as a severe lack of work ethic ...

And then someone almost hit me on teh drive home tonight ...

So.  Fun day.  >.<
sinderella81: (Bad Day)
I went in to work late yesterday, around 10:30am because we had a TON of things due to be filed, so I knew I'd be staying late.  By the way, a lot of documents is over 60!!!!!  (I work in a law firm)

I was at work till 4am this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Four of us were there till four this morning to get everything filed!  For those of you keeping track, that is a 17.5 hour day.

I got home around 4:15am and fell asleep around 4:30am.  But ... stupid internal alarm clock woke me up at 8:15am this morning!  So I got up, showered and went to Target ...got a big chunk of Xmas shopping done ...

So tired.
sinderella81: (Not My Day)
So ... I'm posting from work.  It is 10:48pm as I type this and I've been at work since 8:00am ... and I worked through lunch.  That's ... almost 15 hours.  And I still have something I'm waiting on, so I'll be lucky to get out of here at midnight the way this day is going.  Oh and joy of all joys?  I have to be back here at 8:00am tomorrow.  I haven't eaten since about 1:30pm and I'm a bit cranky.

I intend to be cranky tomorrow as well.
sinderella81: (Bad Day)
Get to work - wrist hurts so I put on brace

9:30- send letter giving ex parte notice

1:15 - attorney decides might not do ex parte

1:30 - talk with attorney and figure out who's hearing ex partes Monday in case need to file it tomorrow.

1:45 - attorney runs in and wants to file today.  Problem.  Internet is down.  No email, no internet, nothing.

2:00 - can't get the papers filed.  Attorney gets pissed.

2:30- try to serve amended ex parte notice and then get stopped because opposing counsel took their motion off calendar so we don't need the ex parte anyway (thank goodness we couldn't file it, right?) ... Send new letter taking ex parte off calendar.

3:00 - attorney gets call from another clerk in another department who tells her that all these motions we wanted to move out to late September are being moved up to August 23 - making oppositions due MONDAY O____o

5:10 - leave work.  Internet is still down.

Vacation is in less than three days!  I have all of next week off of work and am leaving EARLY Saturday morning to drive out to El Paso/Sunland Park to stay with besties

I know that my lj of late has been either memes or whining about work.  So .. I'm exceedingly happy to be getting a much needed break.

I will also be sure to post pictures so you all can see that I did indeed take a break from work LOL

I was having a pretty good morning.  It was a nice, easy day.

Young lawyer comes in and asks for something.  Doesn't specifically ask me and my coworker who share an office.  Doesn't make sure that we're actually paying attention and not working on something else.  So, neither my coworker or I exactly hear what he's saying.  He says something like' thank you' and storms off.  I heard a bit more than my coworker, so I do a little digging, and then email him with what I can't find and ask for some clarification.  Coworker goes to vent to her sister (HR) and then comes back and starts writing an email to address the situation.

I come back and check my emails and young lawyer has responded to my questions with "I found what I was looking for.  Next time I'll just skip you and (coworker) fighting over who's going to answer me."

Um ... Childish, much?  So I forward the email to office sharing coworker, who responds, copying the two lead attorneys and HR.

Why does he think he can talk to me and my coworker like that?!?!

Then, I was emptying the toner waster container on the copy machine and inhaled the dust through my nose ... I was blowing black shit out of my nose for like an hour.

Work Stuff

So ... I sometimes suffer from insomnia ... I'll wake up at like midnight, then 3, then 4, etc ... it sucks.

Yesterday morning I apparently woke up at like, 4:15 and had a text conversation with my boss ... I have no recollection of this conversation, but when I went back and read the texts, I was mostly coherent ... I told him yesterday that it was a one time deal and not to expect it again.  He said he was impressed with how quickly I'd responded, then laughed when I told him I hadn't remembered it.

Yesterday was kind of a shit day though ... I ended up working till 9:15 last night because we had eight oppositions due ... only one of which got filed before 5pm ... when I left there were still three documents that needed to be filed, but my manager said I could go home and she'd finish the last three documents ...

Then this morning I got a text from the boss thanking me for working hard and staying late and that he appreciated the effort ... it's nice to be told you're appreciated
sinderella81: (Tired)
Don't got 17 hours without eating ... it makes you shaky and cranky and grumpy

I worked a 13.5 hour day yesterday, straight through lunch.  Ate lunch (pizza) at about 2 and didn't leave work till 9:30pm.  Got home and walked the dog before crawling into bed.

Woke up at 7am this morning and ate a thing of string cheese because ... headache.  Ran my errands and then grabbed breakfast from BK because I needed the grease ... my hands were shaking hardcore ... I need to make sure I eat ...

But now, weekend!  Paid a few bills, going to buy the Moulin Rouge soundtrack in iTunes (because my hard copy got stolen) and upload a video of the hail from yesterday afternoon at work ... :D
sinderella81: (Eyebrow)
First ... the creepy attorney who used to live in our office ... got all the girls roses.  Either one or two a piece ... kinda creepy but hey, I'm not going to turn down flowers.

THEN ... someone from AT&T was working on the street and cut our whole phone system ... no calls in, no calls out, no internet, no emails ... we were in a little office bubble ...

Weird, weird day.

But Suits tonight, yay!
sinderella81: (Tired)
Yesterday was a DAY! We had oppositions to TWELVE motions due ... it was a total of 28 documents that had to be printed, signed, electronically filed, served via email, overnight delivery and US Mail ...

I got into the office at 7:30 a.m. and didn't climb into my car until a little after 11:00 p.m.! Fifteen and a half hours WITHOUT lunch ...

We would have been there later, but my boss, his daughter and someone else from the office showed up at the office around 10:15 or so and helped us get them all packed up, labeled and posted for mail ... I kind of wish I'd had the time to video my boss ... he was sitting on the floor, jacket and tie off, stuffing documents into envelopes ... AND he offered to take them all to the post office today, so it saved me and my manager from doing it.

But yeah ... tired.

Y'all ...

sinderella81: (Really???)
I am a doofus!

I hit myself in the face today ... literally ... as in with my own hand.

I was at work, and went to swat a bug away, and instead smacked myself in the face.

O________________o

Doofus, thy name is Becky.
sinderella81: (Emma)
I know I've been awy for a while ... other than posting stuff about 'Suits' LOL

I don't know if I mentioned it before but I got a promotion and another raise!  I'm now a legal assistant and now on salary which is both awesome and horrible LOL

I took my notary class and totes passed!  Just waiting for the background check to go through so I can take my oath and be a notary :)

Our office now has all the fencing along our back balcony to keep kids from breaking our windows and there are these prongs that face outwards and ... yeah.  Uh-huh.  Very attractive LOL ... Although yesterday the people who were doing the welding accidentally set some dry brush on fire ... they got it out quickly but.  Dude.

I'm totes into Suits at the moment (but also waiting for NCIS to come back).  I've written like tons of fics (11 to be exact) and posted them to AO3 :) ... I also signed up for the Small Fandom Big Bang to write for Suits ... 10k ... I can do it, right?
sinderella81: (Ugh!)
Dude, got to work today and we had SEVEN broken windows!!!  WTF people!

Busy day at work.  Didn't get lunch until close to 2, and only took a partial lunch at that.

On the plus side, this happened:

Me: *says something suitably witty*
Coworker:  You'll make me choke on my nuts!
Me: ... *cracks up*
sinderella81: (Shadow Peni)
So we were all talking about desserts and stuff at work ... 

And the youngest attorney wanders in and says:  I put sugar on my cake

I heard:  I put sugar on my DICK

To be fair, I was sitting by the typewriter with it on.  But ... O.o  So I had to ask him to clarify because I totally didn't hear what he'd said ... 

I was kind of amusing lol
sinderella81: (Pouting Tony)
So ... we have a new hire.  He's 24 and pretty darn cute.  He's been here for two weeks now.  Last week he forgot that we have casual Fridays, but he remembered today.  I commented on it when he was clocking in.  Well, our part time receptionist was there, too

So, I go back to my desk and our new hire goes to his.  The receptionist buzzes my desk (which means it's on speakerphone) and says:

"You just wanted to see his cute butt in a pair of Levis."

I snatched the phone right up!  I was totally embarrassed!!!!!
sinderella81: (Powers)
I have been promoted!  I am no longer a legal clerk, but am now a legal secretary ... I got a pay raise and I don't have to clock in and out anymore!!!

Although I was freaked out for a bit ... the human resources lady said she wanted see me after I clocked out ... So for the last 10 minutes of the day I was replaying the last few weeks wondering what I did ... So, then I get to her office and she asks if I brought Jen (my manager) with me ... I was like 'no' ... So she gets Jen to come in.  Jen's all ... 'Busted!  I'm just kidding' ... omg she scared the crap out of me!

But yes, promotion ... which comes with more responsibilities and ... more money!!!
sinderella81: (Sneer)
So, yesterday we filed some documents at the Court.  After we emailed courtesy copies to opposing counsel, they alerted us to the fact that we had the department wrong.  Now, we are assigned to one department for everything, but this specific hearing is being heard in a different department ...

So, we prepare a courtesy copy to deliver to the department today.  Our runner goes up today to deliver a courtesy copy and the department (12) won't take the papers because they have the 'wrong' department on it (19, where we're assigned) ... So, then we try to re-file the documents by fixing the face pages down at the copy room ... No, we can't file it again because it's already been filed!

So we can't deliver courtesy copies and we can't re-file it ... how is the department supposed to get the docs!  Except for to wait for Dept. 19 to forward it to Dept. 12 ... *headdesk*

There are many days where I can't stand the legal system ...
sinderella81: (LOL)
So yesterday was a DAY!  I was doing something the whole day and I didn't get to clock out until about 5:45 ...

But during the day we were handling something for a couple of clients we have in Germany ... who only speak German.  So we have been using a legal translator for documents, and a college professor for sending emails and such.  Well, we got a couple of documents translated and sent them to the college professor to send to the clients with instructions ...

Well, my boss texts me later in the evening last night and asks if the email went out to the college professor because he didn't see it ... I replied to him that yes, the email did go out, and that he replied to the email and asked to be copied on all communications ...

LOL ... my boss can be a bit forgetful sometimes LOL

So I had to stay at work a little late today - I had to look for something, then email someone to get it, then I had to make a copy of something.

Everyone had left except me, Jen (my manager) and Nicole (one of the attorneys) ... that's right, 3 women.

It was 6:20 and I was about to leave, but the doorbell kept ringing and someone kept banging on the doors ... so Nicole told me not to leave yet ... we started closing things down and were going to leave together ... I spent twenty minutes in the office waiting to see if we could leave ... We finally got someone from next door to walk down with us and ...

It turned out it was the assistant of the lawyer who's leasing an office in our building!  He forgot his key and couldn't remember the code to get in!!!!  We all felt SO SILLY!!!
