Can somebody please tell me what the point is of graduating at the top of your high school class, getting into a good college, avoiding the bottle enough to excel at your undergrad major, studying 9 hours a night (for months) to get in the top 2 percentile of the LSAT, peddling yourself in twenty different cities to get into a good law school, avoiding the bottle enough to amjur torts and constitutional law and evidence classes and be the class asshole, killing yourself over law review, finishing law school just in time to start studying for the Bar, passing the Bar on the first try just in time to get a low-paying, thankless junior attorney job, blowing your first two months of salary on a decent suit to wear to court, billing two-hundred hour weeks until your boss actually gives you a closet-sized office…ultimately to make your Hardass Asian Parents adequately proud when they say, “our son is a lawyer“…
…but to throw all of that pride away by representing a lawsuit litigant whose reason for suing Victoria’s Secret is that the jeweled heart on her used thong snapped off and hit her in the eye?
Even my parents want that tuition money back.
