New job, started today. The life of a temp. I call for a job, in the three hours one is selected. I am "Bob" from accounttemps.
I have been sent to a law firm *****cringe*****
I dreaded starting. I hate new beginnings, and lawyers are just not me.

I am temping at a law firm. I guess it is okay, as it is in an old big pretty house, is on the coolest street (Elmwood near Allentown) in Buffalo. Oh god, of the very few lawyers I know, I am now an employee of one. A local musician I know, also a lawyer. How funny. He looks kind of dorky in a suit.

I still generally dislike law firms. I guess the biggest thing is that lawyers seem to expect staff to lick their butt. I hate how lawyers have paralegals. It is like the doctorate with the associates degree assistant, as if the the difference in a degree make some serf kingdom. I think I have shown the head partner that I am capable (of accounting...I still can't remember any one's name or find the bathroom).

I kind of took a mental step back when I introduced myself as temporary accountant. I was "corrected" and told I was a temporary bookkeeper (the accountants were the people they hired to do the taxes). I can be whatever you want....

But I am an accountant, not a bookkeeper, thank you very much.

Well kudos on your new job. Hope you like what I said a couple of posts back. Thinking of you on the desk is kind of amazing!
