The most frustrating part of being a paralegal:
Writing a memo to an attorney that carefully outlines everything you have done on the case and tabulates all documents gathered, only to get a call three days later from said attorney asking what’s going on.
Did ya read what it says?
It’s especially terrific when your supervising attorney (SA) asks you to provide said information to another attorney, and then said other attorney (OA) swings by the office of your SA to ask all the questions that she would have the answers to if only she’d deigned to read the lowly paralegal’s unimportant memo. At which point said supervising attorney calls you and growls, “Didn’t I tell you to give OA all that information?”
At which point SA will grill you on all the information that was in the memo. And then send OA to talk to you and ask you all the same questions, because no one can fucking bother to read your damned memo.
Just abstract, hypothetical observations. Nothing to do with the progression of the day….
