Pet peeves (I've got plenty)

Lawyers are busy people, that's fine, I get that. But they have this ridiculous tendency to write the shortest, most brusque emails they can possibly muster. It basically makes them sound like chronic assholes (even when I otherwise have every reason to believe they're not). I might well fall into this when I'm a grown-up too, but in the meantime, I make a point of putting pleases and thank yous in my emails. I say hellos and include pleasantries. Seriously, it adds about 15 seconds to the time it takes to write the email, and it makes me an infinitely more enjoyable-sounding human being. At least in the digital forum, that is. In person, I'm still an insufferable bastard.
