I have a lot of friends I grew up with who became lawyers, and each is more of an asshole/bitch than before. Giant chips on everyone's shoulders, plus a mindset warped to lose all facility for independent taste.
We hear bad stroies about lawyers everywhere.
But down here in Charleston,
many of them are gentlemen,
or else very talented actors.
Edit: They even let a couple of them in the Country Club.
