I Didn't Do It
We have had a myriad of problems recently with other firms not taking responsibility for doing their jobs. On the up side, we have gotten lots of work since these firms have been blacklisted by one of our clients. On the down side, we have to deal with them to try and figure out what they were supposed to be doing with the files. The most original excuse we have heard recently for incompetence is "my secretary broke her knee!" I have begun to use this phrase in everyday conversation. It has a certain something.
