So yesterday I was in trial. The case ended in a settlement. But the part that made me laugh was when we, meaning my clients, myself, and my co-counsel, were walking to lunch.
There we were, walking down the hallway at the court house. Co-Counsel and I were loaded down like pack-mules with all our trial gear (we didn't have a courtroom at that point). When I saw another lawyer standing down the hallway whom I had not seen in a long time. It took me a minute to realize who it was, but then I realized it was a lawyer I used to work with back at my old firm of Working For Better Money.
I saw him. He saw me. And turned his back at me refusing to look at me until I had gotten on the elevator.
As soon as we were passed, I couldn't stop chuckling to myself. Co-Counsel asked me what was so funny. So I told her
Angrybell: "You see that guy who keeps turning his back to us in the black suit?"
AB: "That's Mrs. Angrybell's ex-fiance."
C0-Counsel: "Oooooh scandal!"
So of course, once I got off the elevator I had to whip out my cellphone and call Mrs. Angrybell. I told her what happened. Her responses made me laugh.
Mrs. Angrybell: "Did he say anything to you?"
Angrybell: "No, just turned his back to me."
Mrs. Angrybell: "Well why didn't you go over and offer to show him pictures of Angrybabybelle?"
So since I didn't share with him, I figure I'll share with you all.
Isn't she cute?
