    Well, in a perfect scenario, what you like to do and what pays well are the same thing. Hopefully this dude actually likes being a lawyer, because if so, more power to him. But if he doesn't, he's going to lead a miserable fucking existence and probably suck at his job.

    He's talking about me.

    I do suck at my job [​IMG]

    My existence is fucking miserable [​IMG]

    What I like to do is drink, but no one will pay me to do it [​IMG]

    I'll pay you to drink (while you dance bottomless and occasionally shout "Teenie weenie shaky shaky!"). Is your weenie teenie enough for this position, though? I've got tons of resumes from the finest trannies in NYC already lined up, so you'd better bring it.

    My weenie is TOO teenie for certain positions. I'll take the job if he wont.
    I don't want to have to deal with whiney, know it all, snobbish customers in wrinkled shorts and loud shirts, wearing flip flops.

    You end up dealing with these assholes in all industries, not just service.

    Sorry, I am half black.

    Dude, I know students who PAID to work during the summer, i.e. "externship for credit," which the school charges tuition for.

    Note the article is 2 years old.

    But still a good read, and advice that no one will heed.


    Yup, and things haven't gotten any better since then. Some 45,000 students just graduated this year, and moar are coming every year. [​IMG]

    Time to think about a new market?

    I know people who get paid more than that to make photocopies at small chicago firms...

    I have been reading about the imminent demise of the legal profession for 25 years. Sometimes I think it is perpetrated by the ABA to keep the marginal people out of the profession. I know tinfoil hat shit.

    I'm about to graduate from law school. Can someone set me up with a $250k SF backup job?

    Talk to MetroStyles. It won't be pleasant, but, money is money.

    From what I'm reading here, aren't most lawyers "marginal people"? Or is that, marginally people?
