When my boss asks me to find something specific in an Order. So I look, knowing that the request came from our leader who we refer to as Clueless for obvious reasons, therefore it doesn't exist. I do some research, looking through Orders, searching Westlaw, and come up empty. This is also after having to ask for clarification of her very vague request.
So I send over the one sort-of relevant item I found, saying i did a, b and c but didn't find anything. She then responds back to me "thanks, please keep looking>"
the thing I just told you doesn't exisit?
UPdate: I sent her something else, and she again asked me to keep looking for the thing that doesn't exist. Oh, and I could I do a "quick" search of certains docs in our database. I told her yes, i am more than happy to search but a. it won't be quick since our DB will not search text of the docs, just the entries and b. I will do it when I've finished the two other tasks I need to do. I haven't heard back after that one. I mean, I've told her 6 times already what she is looking for simply doens't exist. I don't know how much clearer I can be!
