If you've been a court reporter for any length of time, sitting there silently on the sidelines, writing every spoken word has no doubt given you time to think.
It's your job to be neutral, but sometimes with the caliber of people in the room it's hard not to formulate opinions.
For instance, how many times have you told everyone that only one person can speak at a time?
How about when attorneys get the bright idea of ordering lunch and eating during the depo to save time while you're sitting there starving?
And don't even get a court reporter started on the subject of grammar.
Some of these cups are inspirational, some are downright hilarious, but all of them are perfect for that special court reporter in your life.
Thank you Mira?
I like your mugs! Nice read, too!
It can be a pickle. You just kind of learn to deal with it. I'm glad you liked them!
This sounds like a stressful job. A funny coffee cup is a must I suppose! And these are good, but I definitely needed an explanation for some.
LOL I am so glad you liked it. That phrase came to me one morning while I was getting ready to go to work. I knew it wasn't going to be a good day because of what was scheduled. I guess I was mentally preparing myself :)
Seriously...it's called grammar, you should try it sometime. I WANT THAT MUG. (I've just shown my husband the advert, so it's a possibility!) It's just as true for proofreaders and editors also. Plus, Android phones are made of win, but I can now see, having owned mine for less than TWO FREAKIN' DAYS, why everyone types in lower case these days. Bleeding eyeballs can be supplied to those who do not see The Light. 140 class? I never graduated that either, and we're talking Teeline shorthand here, not kourpts.
