The jerk asked for yet anoth­er continuation—he’s using the same tac­tics as when we were in court ear­li­er this year.

Big clue to the whole world: if you are in court for ANY rea­son at all, and I mean even if you are just tak­ing care of a traf­fic tick­et, dress appro­pri­ate­ly. Courts are very con­ser­v­a­tive places. Guys, wear a suit and tie if at all pos­si­ble. The absolute MINIMUM attire for you is slacks (and they bet­ter be fresh­ly ironed with a crease that’ll cut things) and a col­lared shirt. Ladies, wear a suit. Or a nice, classy dress. Do not wear pants if there’s any way to avoid it. If you must wear a pantsuit, it bet­ter be real­ly pro­fes­sion­al. Any­body who shows up in jeans and t‑shirts, sweats, etc. is NOT going to be tak­en seri­ous­ly. You will look dis­re­spect­ful. The judge and sher­if­f’s deputies and every­one else is going to assume you’re clue­less or a jerk. You will lose cred­i­bil­i­ty. I don’t care if the oth­er par­ty (if there is one) is like­ly to show up dressed the same way—YOU show up dressed appro­pri­ate­ly. Please.

I just had to get that off my chest.
