Never dismiss coincidence, it's right around the corner
I work as a paralegal for an attorney. On Monday a woman came to see him, I took notes, she was there to see if she could recover her share of her inheritance. Her brother was executor and he claimed there were only debts and nothing to distribute.
Two weeks later a young woman was referred to the attorney. Her case was about a lawyer, he was executor of her father's estate. There was nothing to distribute, there was nothing in the estate except debts.
The brother in case 1 was the attorney in case 2. With the second visit my boss took both cases. And so a thief was caught, unraveled by coincidence. My boss used that as an example for me, coincidences do happen. Think about our affair he said, what coincidence was going to give us away.
