you are bound to have some interesting chats. Unfortunately, working for a lawyer, I can rarely talk about them, let alone publish them on my blog. But this one seemed safe enough. The caller is a longtime client and also good friend of my boss. I talk to him a few times a week.
Me: Good afternoon, Law Offices
Caller: Is Bossman around?
Me: I’m sorry, he stepped out for a few minutes, can I have him call you when he gets back in?
Caller: He said he wasn’t going to step out until 1:30!
Me: This is a different kind of “stepping out”.
Caller: So he’s in the bathroom.
Me: He stepped out.
