The other day I was telling a friend that I still had a few hang ups on being known as an attorney.
"I don't understand," I told her,"there are some really good lawyers out there."
Today, I am sitting at my Tex-mex restaurant within earshot of one of those awesome online date meetings.
The dude is talking incessantly and is clearly a lawyer.
So far he's discussed how the baseball commissioner's authority over the draft is in violation of anti-trust laws; how you shouldn't be able to go to jail if you lie under oath to Congress in an improperly called hearing; that you shouldn't be taxed when receiving a gift because you haven't yet sold anything; and how everyone in corporate America is a lazy whiner because all they do is go to meetings all day and never get anything done, and woe if any of those people ever had to work in a law firm environment.
I must look like I'm about to throw up because my waiter just asked me if i wanted to order a pitcher instead of a single margarita.
PS - Now he's schooling her on how to properly execute a yard sale. This dude, he knows EVERYTHING and is right about EVERYTHING. Personally, I'm debating whether to sit here quietly, punch him in the face, or go tete a tete and make him look like an idiot. Going to be non-lawyerly and stay mum I think.
