no really i don't have any stake in this. i just can't stand dim bulbs that's all. sigh my greatest weakness is putting too much effort in trying to make dullards understand simple things.

what part of my posts is so difficult to understand?

If you think the difference between "officiall Monday to Friday" vs "official Monday to Saturday" is just a matter of semantics, then you clearly aren't a very good lawyer eh?


everybody knows that lawyers work far far longer hours than that and its part & parcel of the job. no one is disputing that here, so stop creating strawmans to argue about.

i'm saying that for a professional services firm to stipulate an official Saturday workday shows how shitty they are.

God I can't believe i'm repeating myself for the THIRD time here. is there something so cheem about this concept that you have problems grasping?
Hi there, i am the original OP. Thank you for your kind remarks and I fully understand where you are coming from. I was not the appropriate candidate for the job in the end.

I notice in the law forums, there's always someone that sounds smart using rare words like 'dullards'. I just checked Google's usage statistics of the word and it's usage peaked in 1990 and then drop by 50%.

Should I learn to use the word 'dullard' so I can communicate better with lawyers?

Thanks!

Again, ask lawyer simple question still can't get simple answer. So what exactly does email address caption mean? Lol. I understand email address but apparently there must be some secret hand shake to send captions when lawyers use email. I Googled 'email address caption' but found Instagram caption, which I get.

Do you mean:

1. My email is [email protected]

or

2. When signing off an email,

My email: [email protected]
'I'm a dullard'

So are you asking me to get better at English by using rare words like 'dullard'?

It seems that lawyers carry a certain level of elitism that only resonates with those who use words like 'dullard'. Lol. Great, I'll see whether my lawyer friends see me differently once I introduce the word 'dullard' in my conversation.

Ha ha ha ha! If they give me more attention, that'll be super funny.

Or you could get better at English.

Lol, is that your best comback?

Let's analyze my previous response:

So are you asking me to get better at English by using rare words like 'dullard'?
- My English seems to be correct here.

It seems that lawyers carry ...
- 'lawyers' (plural), so I wrote 'carry' (plural verb). Correct.

... a certain level of elitism that only resonates ...
- 'level' (singular), so I wrote 'resonates' (singular verb). Correct.

... with those who use words like 'dullard'. ...
- 'those' (plural), so I wrote 'use' (plural verb). Correct.

Lol.
- Short form of 'laughing out loud'. Hmmm, I think in legal contracts I'll write the full 'laughing out loud'. Lol to the client. Haha!

... my lawyer friends see me differently ...
- 'lawyer' (plural), so I wrote 'see' (plural verb). Correct.

... I introduce ...
- 'I' (singular), so I wrote 'introduce' (singular verb). Correct.

I was expecting a better comeback. Lol. Am I still the dullard?
