SAY GOODNIGHT GRACIE

You can't make this stuff up. In NY, as I'm sure in other states, s certificate of occupancy is commonly known as a C.O. An expediter is someone who does the leg-work to obtain the C.O. I called an expediter today and asked his assistant to fax the C.O. to me. She asked me how to spell C.O. SAY GOODNIGHT GRACIE!!

Years ago, when we were sill using thermal paper faxes, I told a Realtor that I was out of fax paper, could she wait an hour before she faxed something to me. Her response was that she would fax some paper to me. SAY GOODNIGHT GRACIE!!

I had two clients named Henry (not their real name). They happen to be brothers. Their voices happen to be similar. They introduce themselves over the telephone as Henry or Henry's brother Henry. They fail to see the humor in this. SAY GOODNIGHT GRACIE!!


I once had an assistant, we'll call her "Karen Speakin," because that is how she answered the telephone. Because of a freak accident in the office she broke the heal on her shoe, She asked me to reinverse (sic) her for the shoes. I figured it was shoes that could be worn on either foot. SAY GOODNIGHT GRACIE!!


I once had an assistant quit because I told her that Gonna was not a word. When she was rehired, by another Attorney in the office, the next day, a friend in the office said to her "I didn't think you were Gonna be back." SAY GOODNIGHT GRACIE!! A postscript to that story was two weeks later I was asked to fire her.



Our old receptionist would talk to dead people. We'd ask her who she was speaking to and she would say she channels dead people. The least she could have done was get the estate as a client. Really, SAY GOODNIGHT GRACIE!!
