I got a draft back from my judge this morning with a segment circled in red with a large question mark.


I had intended to type:

"objected to the presentation of counsel during the hearing"

Somehow this was rendered as:

"objected to the penetration of counsel during the hearing"


I think I'd object in that case......

Spelling was one of the only things I was ever naturally good at, so I don't feel yer pain



I tried to empathize, but I'm so goddarned good at it, I just sorta felt like making fun of you

Er, but I didn't




I'm benevolent like that

Proofreading.

Thank God we have lots if it.

The way the system is here, everything gets read by at least five people before it is issued. That fact has saved my mildly dyslexic ass on many occasions, most commonly when "fraudulent' somehow gets rendered as "flatulent."

"the district court properly found that plaintiff's behavior was flatulent "
