Ungh. Another big job dumped on me to be done for January 1st.
How can people not realize that work given after, say, December 10th simply isn't going to be done before the new year? December is not a full work month, it's a half-month. Anything given in that back half simply isn't going to be done before the new year. People are away. Offices are closed.
But they at least got to check off that box "given to lawyer".
Bonus points for this one writing their letter on the 10th, and fucking emailing it on the 22nd. Twelve days this rush job sat on their desk. Bravo, assholes.
