What's wrong with this letter??

WARNING!!
What you are about to read is an actual true story of stupidity. The circumstances did take place, but the names have been changed to protect the not-so-intelligent. This recollection is not to be construed as a substitution for common sense, but merely a form of entertainment for blog readers everywhere.

I received a letter from an attorney client a couple years back, that read:

Grandy,

Please find the attached lawsuit served upon our firm today, from the Grumpy family's new counsel. Interestingly, they are suing us for libel and slander based on some comments I made about them at a recent mediation. Ironically, I did say they were incompentent, and now they have to prove they're not in order to make their case.

Please note that this matter has been assigned to Judge Suzy Sassypants. I hereby request that the Not-so-honorable Sassypants recuse herself from this case as she is not qualified, and a MORON.

Kindly refer this matter to the appropriate defense attorney, and contact me to discuss further.

Sincerely,

ESQ.

Readers...can you tell me what's wrong with this letter?? My client "re-worded" his letter at my diplomatic urging, was not able to get the judge to recuse herself, but did win the case. Good thing!!! All in all...it brings me back to HUH!!!

How about What were you thinking when you wrote this or were you even thinking as it was written?

Michele said...

Gotta love you! I can always count on you for entertainment!!

These hilarious posts are great! And like I said... you should be writing comedy!

Smiles,
Michele

Grandy said...

Mike~ I so agree...that was sort of what I asked when I discretely asked him to re-write the letter.

Michele~ Um...I thought I was writing comedy?? Oh WAIT...you mean writing FOR someone!!! I'm working on that. ;)

Outside of spelling "incompeNtence" (sic) and name-calling, I see no "reazon" (my own choice) for the lawsuit to go any other way. It's all comedic, isn't it?

Thanks for the laughter this morning. It's always a joy to visit.
Hugs and blessings,

Ahh Grandy, thank you for the smiles.

Grandy said...

Marilyn~ Thanks so much for stopping by! Cheers back to ya!

Michele~ Silly woman!! I knew what you meant. I was just teasing. I'm not that sensitive. ;)

storyteller~ Spelling was not his only problem, I'm afraid.

Mrs. G~ It's the least I can do. :)

A HAHAHAHAHAHAH! there's a reason i left law school, and it's probably because i knew inherently there'd be days with people who wrote letters like this!

Grandy said...

Wreke~ There are more days than not where this happens...I assure you!! :)
