When a young attorney walks into the office late (around 10 or 10:30) wearing a suit, it is generally assumed that this individual is returning from a court appearance.

At this point, it is acceptable to say: "Did you go to court today?"

It is not acceptable to say: "Were you playing lawyer today?"

I would be offended if not for the fact that playing lawyer is pretty much what I do every day.
