I know you’re busy, running a business with lots of other court reporters to coordinate, but the reason that my assistant sends you an email with a list of the next week’s appointments with day, time, case number, and location, is so that I can send you a quick email that says “Tomorrow morning’s appointment is off” without my needing to have to check my calendar and spell it all out for you, ALL OVER AGAIN. It’s called a f*cking reference sheet for a reason. So you can REFER BACK TO IT.
So please, don’t send me a snippy email when I re-send you the reference email with a “See below.” I am paying for your services, and as you’ve already found out, if you f*ck me over because you can’t read the f*cking clear as day reference sheet, I will call someone else, rather than wait for you or one of your reporters to show up. And, um, don’t go complaining to my boss again, either. He won’t side with you this time, either, and he may just well send YOU the bill for the replacement court reporter.
Love and kisses,
A very bitchy, cranky lawyer.
