Rules to Live By

December 31st, 2011 · 1 Comment · Family Life

I’m looking for Rules To Live By for an article I’m thinking about doing for the State Bar Publication.  Sort of the “never ask a woman when her baby is due unless she herself has told you she is pregnant becuase you have about a 50/50 chance she’ll respond, “I’m not pregnant, I’m just fat.” or something like that.

Since this is my game, I’ll start.

One rule, specific to anyone who actually goes to a Courthouse is:  When you meet someone you know in a Courthouse, you NEVER, EVER ask them “what are you doing here?”  They will tell you, in great detail, much more than you ever wanted to know.  This applies to other lawyers as well, especially those you don’t see at the Courthouse on a regular basis.  Unless it’s the guy you suspect lives in a closet in the basement, just.don’t.ask.    A lesson I learned the hard way.

You can e-mail me at mandco (at) myowncircleofconfusion (dot) com.   If you have any funny stories about how you learned your Rule to Live By,  I’d love to hear those too.

    That sounds like a fun article. Our state bar publication does not have fun articles.
