We have a group of attorneys visiting from the Frankfurt office to meet with a client who has some business issues in Europe he needs our help with. It's dangerous when people visit from outside our four walls. They ask too many questions, and remind people here that not everyone operates the way we do. When one of them said to an associate, "You mean you do work on weekends?" I cringed. I worry that it'll remind them that not everyone lives the same life as we do, and make them think too hard about the quality of their existence. Of course, they also ask amusing questions like about how the auto-flushing toilet works, and why the portions at lunch are so big.
