Disclaimer: I do have some friends that are lawyers, but they are not on TV @ 6:30 AM telling me that they will take my case if they think they can win at no charge. I remember first time giving a deposition. A woman typing everything said faster than I talk. Primarily an insurance battle on which Co. was going to pay for plaintiffs burnt boat. After being grilled on what I thought was pretty cut and dry common sense stuff I made the statement that the plaintiff was not stupid (I knew him pretty well) and he knew the boat was being subcontracted to where it burnt. His lawyer was then dumb enough to ask me if I thought he was stupid in a smart aleck way. When I reached across the table for him as I was saying yes, I am glad my Co's. lawyer stopped me. I was dismissed and we lost.
