A brief illustration:
1.) my immediate boss states that i am not exhibiting leadership qualities, but acting as a good solider (despite the fact that i help manage the office when he is not there, help the new attorneys with their cases, and tried more cases in the last year than the rest of the attorneys combined),
2.) spending a hour with a client that is thoroughly convinced that my office and i was trying to railroad him and having him question my integrity,
3.) dealing with a client that is stalking a cop and throughly believes that the cop is in love with her, despite the evidence to the contrary, and
4.) after taking the car to the dealership, i got the phone call that the head gasket on my car is damaged, and will have to be repaired, if not replaced.
