What Really Happens When Lawyers Pull All-Nighters

| Working | March 29, 2017

(We’ve just had a lawyer move out of our six-room law office, leaving a rather massive room that the rest of us have discussed putting a couch into for naps. I should note that, aside from the remaining lawyer, the rest of the staff is female.)

Me: “I think we should put one of the front office couches in there, then get a black leather couch to put up front.”

Coworker #1: *snickering* “Can you imagine the looks we’ll get?”

Coworker #2: “What? Why? I don’t get it.”

Me: “Apparently, there’s some porno where people walk into an office with a black leather couch and have sex on it in front of the camera. It’s become some kind of a known thing, there’s memes of people with black leather couches and the saying ‘You know where this is going’ on the picture.”

Coworker #2: “Oh! That’s disgusting! But it would definitely pick the perverts out out when we have clients.”

Me: “That’s why I want to put one of those in the front room, just to see the reaction they get.”

(A week later, we have a handful of clients in the waiting room, when Coworker #2 comes walking by my desk.)

Coworker #2: *to me* “So, are you still looking for that black leather couch?”

(One of the male clients, who is in his 40s, got a shocked look on his face almost immediately. My coworkers and I had a good laugh about his reaction.)
