I'll let you in on a little secret. When attorneys are just hanging around in court without their clients there is a lot of joking and smack talk going on. It's sort of like a geek locker room.
So, yesterday I was in court with several other attorneys and we were all trying to get our cases handled so we could be on our way. They probably had other important cases to handle and I just wanted to get back into my sweat pants.
Anyway, one of the other attorneys was not cooperating and I don't know what came over me, but I said "Go stand in the corner!"
He didn't. And everyone laughed, but on the way home I thought "my two worlds are totally colliding and I might need to be more careful."
How about you? What stories do you have about slip ups or near slip ups?
