Good opinion, once lost…
Posted on October 8th, 2012
After dropping Pea off at school, I took M to the lab (it is a holiday for federal employees but not for kids).
It was a tiny setup, and in the waiting area (total seating: 5), I ended up sitting next to a Very Prominent Attorney (M even recognized him from the bar publications).
Very Prominent Attorney did not recognize me, to my relief.
Very Prominent Attorney did not wait patiently. Much sighing.
Very Prominent Attorney did not stand up for the older woman who entered (M glared at him and then did).
Very Prominent Attorney flatulated in front of the entire tiny waiting room.
All I can say is I really will not be able to look at that guy again the same way. Also? I’ll remember that every public appearance, even in a tiny waiting room, is a chance to ruin a good reputation.
