Sometimes I Feel Smart

I don`t have any college degrees ( you can probably tell that but my discussions ) but I did self educate in the areas of life that interest me. I am not a lawyer but I love the law, I understand what I read about it when I do. The lawyers helper, the legal assistant? Right? isn`t that her title, she types up all the legal documents. Well, I have encountered the biggest air head legal assistant ever! Once she made a mistake and put the wrong legal description on land I sold, found out when the lady went to homestead it. Okay once, sure you can make a mistake. I let it go. I am not so sure she is as smart as she tries to make herself look. I dropped off something I need prepared last Monday with it would be ready Friday. I forgot about it. Today it hit me she hasn`t called so I called her. I need to get this stuff signed and soon. After playing phone tag, I got her. She had not even started. I had to tell her how to do her job! I left hand written instructions with the receptionist, not good enough, I had to repeat everything I wrote and the paper that the receptionist filled out for her. Anyways, I got it started, hopefully, I will have to read every thing carefully before I sign, to make sure. Triple check it. Her degree makes me feel smart, makes me wonder how she even passed. Ever run into this type of person?

I have a college degree and it's meaningless. There is no substitute for practical experience.

Especially when trying to fill up the spaces in the university program and taking courses like The Art of Dying I kid you not now where was I going with that? Probably looking forward to meeting a man like Gomez @JohnRoberts

Maybe you should apply for her job. It seems you're better self-educated than she is with her degree.

So the legal lady is not a smart cookie? Maybe she has learned a little from you.

How she keeps her job is more than I can understand! People place too much importance on 'college degrees' and a 'higher education.' Many who have done this and earned these honors, don't have a lick of common sense! And I had a contemporary math teacher, she majored to teach 6th grade English. One student would explain the math problems to her, on the black-board

@andriaperry It is very possible, if they do not smoke, they are drunk.

lord please, she needs to either get into a class to teach her what sh'e's doing or find another job she CAN do cause that can really mess up some 1's living arrangements at the end & THAT'S not good.

@andriaperry yea but if the person don't know how to do what needs to be done they don't need to be working there cause they could mess up the persons WHOLE living arrangement.

Intelligence comes in many forms. Books teach us many things. People teach us many things. The reality isn't how much we know, but how well we apply it!

Book smarts and street smarts are a world apart. You are well versed in what you need to know in your day-to-day life. The legal assistant obviously is not. Yes, I've known several people that had degrees who I wouldn't trust to do something for me.

Wow that is crazy she passed. I don't think it takes a lot to do that job as I know a few people who have done it. I feel that girl where you go is making the practice look bad. I'd go somewhere else and mention to the lawyer why.
