    Last week, I needed a particular map from the county clerks office. The week prior I had obtained the exact same map in the exact same office and made a copy, but this time there was a different gentleman working in the mapping room. I walked in and requested what is generally accepted in all courthouses as the "farmline map". The clerk proceeded to take out a coal map. I replied "No, sir, that is not the map I am looking for" he replies "this is the only map we have which shows historical tracts". I reply "I was in here last week and obtained a farmline map". He replies "I have been working here for 10 years and can assure you we do not have a copy of a farmline map". I replied "But I was in here last week and made a copy". I proceeded to pull up a digital copy of the map which I had saved to my cell phone to prove the map existed. He proceeds to deny existance of the map and begins questioning me on who was working on the day I obtained said map. I replied "I don't know some gray haired guy". The clerk proceeds to leave the map room to speak with his supervisor regarding said map in question. As he is gone, I turn around looked in the hanging map files found the map and laid it out on the table. As he was returning I said "oops, look what I found". In an attempt to refute his obvious attempts at obscuring the truth and obscuring his lie he gets into a twenty minute long discussion with me on the definition of a farmline map. At the end I looked at him and said, "In every other courthouse in the state, I can walk into the mapping room and request a farmline map and am instantly understood because there is a general consensus as to what constitutes a farmline map. But not this county, you mean to tell me you have worked in this courthouse for 10 years and *still* don't know what a farmline map is? And walked out.

    Reminded me of this clip posted on this site a month or so ago:



    The above deposition was in a lawsuit between title companies suing the recorders office for raising the price of copies. I contract for those title companies. My copy bills for a single file have been between $800-$1000, the client reimburses me.

    argh!
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    All it takes is a particular sort of party! I can see them looking great with a classic cocktail dress and pumps.

    (I think my favorite part about them is that they almost look normal, for half a second, until you realize what they are.)

    If I worked at an aquarium, you'd better believe I'd wear it. They're freaking adorable. I especially love the blue-ringed octopus.
