“Am I Responsible For…”

Whenever a conversation or e-mail starts this way, I know that my client wants to do something counter to her or his agreement or in contradiction to the contract.

I usually get “oh, yeah, that’s what I thought” as the reply after I explain the questioner’s obligations (or lack thereof sometimes).

I had this predictable conversational exchange again yesterday, but when we were almost done, I deviated from the script and I asked:  “just out of professional curiosity, if you knew this is what I was going to say, why did you ask?”

“So I can tell my wife that while I totally agreed with her, you said we couldn’t do it.”
