A pal who's a partner at a big-city law firm gets frequent requests from people who want "'five minutes' to pitch their crappy legal services."
The latest came today:
I am planning on being at the firm tomorrow afternoon to introduce myself. I am a Business Development Manager at [redacted] Reporting Corp., a worldwide court reporting and trial presentation company.
I have a little something for you and would like to say a quick hello. Please let me know if you will be around?
I hope to see you!
Nothing wrong with that, right? Except, her auto signature contains this photo (or is it an oil painting?):
Sez my pal the recipient: "I’m tempted to respond, 'Sorry, I’m married,' just to elicit her faux outrage that I interpreted her message as anything other than an innocuous invitation to pitch her business."
