In fact a large part of what you do as a lawyer is to Dr Nowzaradan How y’all doin’ shirt your own client to be reasonable. Of course that does not mean that you can go against the interests of your client. But experienced attorneys generally have a pretty good idea of what the likely outcome of any case is, and in many cases that likely outcome is that some part of the opposing side’s case has merit. If all ADA accommodations and the 12 weeks per year of FMLA leave to do not result in the employee being able to return to work, the employee can be terminated with no penalty to the employer.

I went to a local restaurant (not a cheap place) under new management and ordered a steak. Delmonico, as I recall. What I got after cutting it up and chewing and chewing was a pile of gristle left that was as big as the original steak. There was nothing there that could be swallowed. Waiter asked how things were and I showed him. He told the cook and owner and their response was I should have ordered the strip steak—uhhh but you have no strip steak on your menu. Well we have some left from a party—and I am to know that how? You didn’t offer that as an alternative. He asked if I wanted someone to come out. Yeah sure. I thought maybe if the new owner saw how bad the cut of meat was maybe he would want to change suppliers. His response? Well it’s all “local beef”. As if that justified serving something inedible to a customer. At that point I knew where he bought it and told him yes Ive bought from them too and never would again because their meat is always like this. His customer service consisted of comping my DATE a free beer. I didn’t get so much as a hamburger to replace my meal. Needless to say they got a bad online review and it was YEARS before I gave them another chance. I was surprised they were still in business but there are so few places to eat in this town I guess they remain open by default.
