confliect of Interest

May I show such audacity as to make a point-black correction on this one? The three women who work at Manageing & MANAGEING LLP are listed as Ellen, Lynn, and Roberta, but the latter is supposed to be MADELINE. Roberta is a cleint of the firm, and her office is elsewhere, while Madeline is a colleague. 

You're welcome, counsel. 

Yay! I love Gucci, but this is out of my PAY GRADE (as they say in DC–fooey on goverment).
As for this OP, the manageing partner would NEVER let me get away weareing boot’s of ANY type in the office, irregardeless of whether it was rainey or snowey outside. He insist’s on all of the women (all 3 of us) weareing fashionable pump’s in the OFFICE, (not even flat’s), so that mean’s ME and Lynn and Roberta all haveing to leave at least one pair of nice pump’s in our desk’s so that we have them to change into when we come in.
I suppose it is JUST AS WELL, b/c when I walk in with boot’s, there have been more then a few TIMES when I have acidentelly stepped into dog poop or other gross and have to leave my boot’s (or NIKE’s) out in the hall b/c they are to smelley to bring in. In fact, just yesterday, I got some strange stuff on my NIKE’s when I walked down LEX and had to leave them outside b/c they were gooey. I also left them outside my apartement door overnite, but they are not as gooey today, and the walkeing helps with my FITBIT. YAY!
Sam called, b/c he think’s I may still date him b/c he has some work for the manageing partner. I am NOT being assigned any of his work b/c I think it would be a confliect of Interest, especialy b/c I saw his winkie. I did NOT tell Frank about that or I would NEVER hear the end of it. Frank lives for storie’s like that and I am NOT about to HUMOR him. FOOEY!



    You skipped some pretty funny posts on the 19th, but inasmuch as you've been slacking (maybe with a case of IBS), we will forgive you....this time. Just don't let it happen again.

    Here is #1 from the Coffee Break, where Ellen is considering being a law professor:

    This sound’s like a pretty good way to make an extra $5,000 per semester, but I think I do NOT have enough time to spend on being a ADJUNCT PROFESSEOR. I think I would rather do a FULL PROFESSEORESHIP b/c I could then be abel to have my dad parade around the country club telling everyone that NOT onley was I a partner at a NYC firm, but now am a full professeor of law. My onley problem is that I do NOT know where I am goeing to be–if I get MARRIED and live in Westchester, I do NOT want to have to comute all the way to NYC to teach, nor do I want to have to teach in Brooklen or Long Island. Mabye Pace in Westchester would be OK.

    Does any one know how much a FULL PROFESSEOR can make? $200-250K?

    On the other hand, if I get married and Live on Long Island, mabye it would NOT be so bad to teach on LONG ISLAND or even in Brooklyn, so I have MORE OPTION’s. In either event, I could even teach at NYU, but NOT at Columbia unless I drove, but I do NOT want to drive into the City to teach. FOOEY! I think my best bet is to think about Saint Jon or Brooklyn Law or NYU, takeing the train, or, like the manageing partner says, live in the HAMTONS and teach at Tooro Law, which is out there some where. I just do NOT want to waste alot of time prepareing for class. I figure that as a litiegieator, I could go over trial strategy and other thing’s that I NEVER was taught in law school. YAY!!!!!!!

  2. Here is #2, where Ellen is discussing what is the best and most appropriate business gift, where she confirms that her relationship with her boss is not sexual in nature.

    Yay! I think the best gift for the holiday’s are FOOD, or else cake’s or cookies, and I prefer Crumb’s or David and Somebody if you use mail order. I have to watch what I give Lynn b/c she is young and she is watcheing her figure, but Madeline will eat almost anything (and alot of it) b/c she has a VERY big tuchus and saddel bag’s that she admit’s she has long since STOPPED worryeing about.

    As for the OP, if you are on your second interview, you can tell them it is THEIR TURN to ask YOU question’s b/c you already know you WANT to work there, and it is now up to them if they want you to come work “with them”. Always say “work with them” b/c the workplace is suposed to be colaberative, according to Deborah Spar. Also, speaking along these lines, whatever you do, if you are intervewing with a man who would be your senior manageing partner, NEVER say that you would enjoy working under him, b/c this is a sexueal reference you do NOT want to portray. FOOEY! Frank tricked me once into agreeing that I worked under the manageing partner. I was MORTIFIED when the potential cleint looked at me as if I actueally had sex with the manageing partner. FOOEY! And the manageing partner agreed, b/c we do have ONLEY a professional relationship. TRIPEL FOOEY for Frank makeing me say that. I have learned NEVER to do any doubel entener’s any m0re. So for the OP, good luck, and I hope you get the job!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Finally, here is #3, from the morning thread, where Ellen discusses the dilemma the firm faced when the firm needed a full body photo of the firm for some legal publication. Hilarious!

    I love this dress, but the cut-out in back would NOT work for me b/c Frank is alway’s looking to find any kind of skin on me that he has NOT seen and then stare at it. He is so wierd some times b/c he has a wife who I am SURE he stare’s at all night and weekend’s also!

    As for the OP, I agree it is strange. In fact, the manageing partner wanted a full length photo of everyone in the firm, all standeing at a window lookeing out at the Chrysler Buildeing for an ad he was goieng to place!

    But we don’t even have a conference room that look’s out at that Buildeing, so he was goieng to ask one of his freind’s to loan us their conference room so we could all go take that picture for the Top Lawyer’s magazine. The manageing partner then found out how much it would cost and said that we would consider it next year when we move to our new place.

    Fred has invited me to go to a Knick’s game at the Barclay’s center, b/c they are playing the NETS. I was there once with Willem and it was fun so I told him OK. I hope that was the right thing to do. At least Ed will be happy, tho I am not sure about being the wife of a FEED STORE MANAGER. FOOEY!


    It looks like Fred is back in the picture after all. Ellenwatch, kindly keep up your appointed duties with the flair that we are used to seeing. It is not easy for the rest of us to follow her on Corporette, so we prefer that you do the ground work and furnish witty commentary. Should you continue to slack, we will have to find a wet noodle and deal with you accordingly!
