Does a Hat Fit on That Puffed Head?

I’m dealing with an attorney who is both ill-mannered and less-than-knowledgeable about the practice of real estate. He calculated a closing figure via a method that very few local attorneys do, and I pointed out that his number was over by $15. He then called me — on his speakerphone — to berate me, telling me how he’s “had it” with me, and how superior he was to me due to his “excellent reputation.”

 

(I eventually hung up on him.)

 

Later, I met a friend for dinner who is a legal secretary in the area. I first asked how she does the calculation in question, and her answer completely mimicked my procedure. “That’s how everybody does it,” she said matter-of-factly.

 

“Well, do you know name deleted in town deleted?” I asked. She wrinkled her nose and sneered, “That guy is such a prick.”
