Riddle me this...Bagle

Where the hell can I get a job as a law firm partner that gives me so little to do that I can sit on the net all day and get first response to most threads most times, like Doug Slone - it's totally unreal!
You actually went out and tallied that up?Kristin

Not a lot going on there. You would almost certainly be the finest lawyer in town, as long as you specialize in Inuit (Eskimo) tribal law. This could be a problem, however. We've all heard how they don't have a word for "war," so maybe they don't have a word for "litigation," either.

There's always Bowman, North Dakota.

First, I've been a lawyer for 16 years. I have several jr partners and associates working with me. I'm at the office 10-12 hours a day. When I'm busy, I work up to 18 hours a day traveling to and from taking depositions, or 6 week trials in which every waking moment, and some of the sleeping time, is spent working on or thinking about the case. I supervise 10-12 people, and have other administrative duties at the office that often involve evenings and weekends. You'll notice, if you were thorough, that some days, even weeks, I'll not post at all. Others days, I pop in every hour or so, but it's not like I'm hovering over the computer every minute.

So, come walk a mile in my shoes. I'll be happy to show you how it's done.

BTw, often when I respond first, not so much on the non-bike forum as the others, it's because no one else has, and I'm trying to help someone out, something I've been doing for about 4 years now. Take a look -- who on this entire forum has done more to try to sincerely help other cyclists? There are a few others who are close, of course, but you'd be hard pressed seeing it, with some stick apparently up somewhere it shouldn't be...

your answer to this riddle is too generous. Surprised you dignified that with a response. I think your mid-western roots are showing! Cheers.

Alternate answers:
1)NOYfB
2)You're underqualified.
3)Your wit is as edgey as a beanbag chair.

work-related. Doug's sharpening his lawyering skills in these arguments, just like I'm honing my political polemicist skills. I think we both look on this as professional development.
Hmmm...How can I apply that to my jobKristin

Yes! Sharpening my typing skills. I would go for honing my proofredding skills, but that one could be used against me.
Does that mean its billable time? (NM)torquer
