"Corporate accounts payable, Nina speaking...just-a-moment"

I've noticed a trend in my work:
1. When I lose a case it is because I'm a terrible attorney. Sure my client was captured on camera, confessed (multiple times), and somehow had 2oz of pot in his pants (they likely borrowed the pants). Sure they smoked a joint the morning of their trial (you've got to be calm after all) for possession. In the end though it really is the fact that I'm a terrible attorney that caused them to be found guilty, nothing more.
2. When I win a case it is in spite of the fact I'm a terrible attorney. Sure all the above facts still apply. Sure I just moved a legal mountain so to speak and gave a impassioned plea to the jury that would have made Atticus Finch himself well up with tears. Nope, fact is that they were innocent all along and all I did was "steal" their money.

I like how people wait in line for 10 minutes and then have no idea what they want and aren't prepared to do business. And hey, have some respect for yourself and everyone behind you and get off your phone!

Her all-call office announcements are always unprofessional (bumbling thru the text/info) as well. She cannot utilize outlook to its full capabilities, even though she has been shown several times how to use certain features.
Rant done. That's a little therapedic - thanks

She asked me what I was doing and I said "How does it feel to have eyes staring at you judging every move? I'm not going to have you stand behind me and micro-manage my work, if you don't like my work do it yourself. You need me here more than I need to be here." she got pissy and "told on me" and the owner who I've had a lover working relationship with, took my side.
And yes I didn't really need that job, could have cared less, I was making the same money freelancing, but it was steady easy income...1 year later I was wrong and got the fudge out of there
