Kagan gave Gorsuch a lesson in being the junior Supreme Court justice

Source: The Hill

Before the election and his nomination by President Trump to the Supreme Court, Gorsuch had a lesson from current junior justice Elena Kagan, the Washington Post recounted Sunday.

...

Kagan said the junior justice is assigned to the monthly cafeteria committee until the next justice is confirmed. The committee helps decide the meals for when the justices dine together during oral arguments.

...

The third task, which Kagan called the “most important junior justice responsibility”: They must open the door. “Literally if I’m like in the middle of a sentence — let’s say it’s my turn to speak or something — and there’s a knock on the door, everybody will just stare at me, waiting for me to open the door," she said.

8. I can't help but laugh...

This is so typical in an office. Who's bringing the donuts? Don't forget the card and flowers for so and so. Mundane things can be funny.
