Absent-minded Partner

All this month I've been working for Absent-Minded Partner.

You know who he is. Every firm has one.

He's the one who always loses all of the papers I give him to review. So I have to prepare multiple copies so I can keep giving them to him over and over again.

He's the one who never has a pen handy, because it's stuck behind his ear and he's forgotten where he put it.

He's the one who's really old and never learned how to use a computer, so his secretary has to check his email for him, and pick up his dry cleaning and pay his credit card bill for him.

He's the one who always has a cup of coffee with him when he stops by my office, 3-4 times a week. But after sitting there for half an hour, he gets up to leave and forgets the cup.

So then a week later, I smell something gross, and discover that there are 3-4 old, dried-up and moldy cups of coffee sitting on the top of my bookshelf. Ugh!

THIRTYSOMETHING (!!) year old Asian American New Yorker, lawyer, amateur musician, curious girl taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Don't mess with me - I'm short and I look demure, but I carry a big purse. And I've just embarked on the journey of married life in Manhattan.
