Lawyers Don’t Practice The Law

, , , , , | Legal | October 20, 2018

(I work in the admissions office of a flagship University, answering phone calls, emails, etc.)

Lady: *calls* “Hello, I’d like to speak to the lawyer school.”

(I’m annoyed, because she could just call the number of the law school, but we get hundreds of calls like this, so it’s easier to just transfer them.)

Me: “All right, I’ll transfer you to the law school. Just one moment.”

Lady: “Excuse me?”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Lady: “I said I want to talk to the lawyer school.”

Me: “Yes, I know. I can transfer you to the law school.”

Lady: “Are you stupid? Listen to what I’m saying. The lawyer school.”

Me: “Yes, the [Law School]…”

Lady: “Oh, my gosh. What is so hard about this? I want to talk to the lawyer school. The lawyer school.”

Me: *transfers her to the law school because I’m done with her*
