The practice of law can be highly frustrating and stressful, especially when dealing with bureaucrats. Sometimes I handle it well, sometimes . . . not so well. But I don’t think I’ve ever come near this kind of meltdown when dealing with anyone, including a tax eater. Go here for an epic rant (PG-13). What makes it more amusing: It’s from a patent attorney. In my experience, patent attorneys are pretty reserved. Apparently, my experience with patent attorneys is limited.
Happy birthday to my son, Alex. He turns 20 today. Just one more year, then he can accompany me to the bar. Presently, he merely has the honor of picking me up after my evening libations finish.
