Answering Questions I Wasn’t Going to Ask

Themis statue, Chuo University Suginami High S...

Lady Justice

Me: May I ask the name of your firm again. please?

Caller: Oh sure. It is Douglass, Underhill, Mayers, Billings, Adams, Smith & Stephens. We are an associate of Tricksters Insurance and are handling the claim for your client Mr. Saint.

Me: Let me rewind us back to my question, OK? Yep, I thought so. I only asked for the name of your firm, not every last detail about what you do, who you are affiliated with, etc. Damn lawyers thinking they can talk forever and everyone cares about everything that comes out of their mouth.
