Judge Judy Throttles Lawyer For Vague Language

Standard

I recently watched a Judge Judy episode when under the weather, something I never do,

but  I was really too sniffly to do much else.”Oh Sure!” I can just hear you saying.

Anyway, as usual, she was being very hostile towards someone for not making themself

perfectly clear. I started to imagine a court case where a lawyer in his brief  brief really upsets

Judge Judy  by asking her a question (which  he should know he is not allowed to do in briefs!)

Not a “soft talker”, a  character type introduced on Seinfeld, he is instead, a vague talker.

Anyway, the poem’s title above reveals the outcome,  but I haven’t bothered to write that

for you. Hey! I told you I was sick! I simply give you here:

The Transcript Of The Lawyer’s Offensive Verbal Behavior:                       

“He worked for Whatchamacallit making thingamajigs and widgets;

He worked for umpteen days at the standard pay.

His job was putting doodads on the gismos he was making,

His problem relates to what I’m about to say:

He forgot to put the whatsits on the gadgets as requested—

A heap of them shipped out that very day—  

The boondoggle that resulted was just as you’d imagine,

So we do need to proceed without delay.

Old whatshisname’s reaction is what you would expect

So he’ll deal with it in much the usual way,

Thus the status of my client as of now is undetermined,

So your honour I’ve a question, if I may?

If the thingies do what they’re meant to do

Even minus their thingamabobs,

Should either party even have to pay?

And as my client’s uncle owns the patent on the thing,

Well, is this relative relative would you say?”

About Yvonne's Musings

Being the second of eight kids born in 11 years to my busy parents ultimately was a real advantage to me. I learned very early that if you wanted to be heard amidst all the noise the best way to accomplish it was to write your thoughts down. My first post to my mother," i hate skool. i cried at skool tooday!" was stuck with ABC chewing gum to the lid of the diaper pail, where I was certain that she would find it. Her attention quickly elicited in me a love of writing that has been life long. Seeking a wider audience I have decided to now, decades later, blog. Happy reading Mom! This is for you!
