Are you handling case X? No, I've just done all the work for you to date.
Can you bring me a copy of brief Y? Sure, I'll just put it on top of the stack of 4 other copies of the exact same brief that are sitting on your desk from every other time you asked for it this week.
Can you call the Court and ask where my order is? Of course! I have nothing better to do this afternoon than piss off Court employees with pointless questions they can't answer because it's sitting on a Judge's desk waiting for him to come back from vacation. It's not like they didn't tell me this the last 3 times you asked me to call them.
Do you mind staying several hours late tonight to file something? Yes. I will anyway, because I'd rather stay employed. Honestly, it would be less insulting to just tell me I have to stay late than ask.
Where is document Z being kept? IN THE DAMN FILE!!! Try looking since it's in YOUR OFFICE!!!
