A couple of years ago I was representing a British client who was buying an asset from someone who was represented by an attorney at one of San Francisco’s preeminent law firms. When she called me to see when my client would wire funds, I said “today is Easter Monday, a bank holiday in the UK, so my client can not wire funds today,” she said:
“F*ck you. There is no such thing as Easter Monday.”
I think of her every year on this day.
