3. Internet Filters in the workplace are useless in the age of the Smart Phone.

6. I do not follow college basketball. Do not ask me who's in my bracket. Brackets hold up shelves or surround supplemental text in a written document. (March is a very long month in my office.)
7. How the hell can you have a job in the legal industry and NOT know the freakin' ALPHABET??? (Seriously??? How??? I have money riding on the answer to that question.)
8. "I read/saw/found it on the internet" is never an acceptable phrase to utter during a deposition or trial. Ever.
9. Judges collude with each other to pick a day for all your deadlines to fall on simultaneously. Just because they can.
10. Lexis is the worst research tool in existence.
