Justin Steen, a divorce lawyer, woke up without an alarm every morning at exactly 5:00 am. After his workout routine, he arrived at his office at 7:00 am and start organizing his day. The phone rang at 9:00 a.m.
“Mr. Steen, it’s Julie Palmer,” said the caller, “You’ll never believe what my husband did now.”
“What did he do, Julie?”
“He booked our twelve year old on a ski trip without even telling me!”
“That’s outrageous. I’ll call his attorney right now and follow up with a strong letter. Don’t worry. This will work against him when we get to trial.”
As soon as Justin hung up with Julie, the phone rang again.
“Hello, Mr. Steen, this is Ken Stevens,” said the caller. “My wife has our daughter stuck in a day care center which is boring and just a glorified baby sitter. I want to enroll her in a horseback riding program for the summer and my wife is against it.
“Why that’s outrageous. I’ll call her lawyer right now and follow up with a strong letter. Don’t worry. This will work against her when we get to trial.”
