Another senior associate just emailed the client to tell him that the PDF the client sent him had two pages that were out of order. He asked the client to RESCAN AND RESEND IT. Like he's never used Adobe in his life? I have no words.

Amazing. I’m an in-house counsel and I would bite outside counsel’s head off if they harass my signatories like this - these are old men being asked to handle their own scanning needs for the first time thanks to pandemic and they are very busy, you know, running our business and generating work that keeps outside counsel employed. And/or I would send a very condescending email explaining how to fix it in Adobe since apparently that’s my job now too. 🤦🏽‍♀️

He's not my supervisor. He's a fellow senior associate. We're both in our 30s. Overall he's a nice guy, but sometimes he makes me shake my head. I wasn't on the deal where this happened. I heard about it after he emailed the client. I wish he had asked for assistance internally with the PDF so we didn't look like idiots to the client.

Wow. If this happened when I was inhouse, I would be seriously pissed and comb through their bills to make sure they didn’t bill me more than just pulling sig pages. The correction I get but would have offered to fix it in PDF unless the other side is asking for originals to follow.
