#You Know You’re Talking to a Lawyer When . . .

Another faux twitter post:

  1. You are telling an amusing story and he starts asking questions like you are a trial witness.
  2. She uses the word “tort” in a sentence, and is not ordering dessert.
  3. During a casual conversation, he can compose a grammatically correct paragraph that has more than three complete sentences.
  4. She uses the word “heretofore” in a sentence, and is not making a joke.
  5. He is taking notes during your conversation.
  6. She monitors the amount of time she spends talking to you.
  7. He asks for your opinion on a current event topic and then proceeds to tell you why you are wrong.
  8. She refers to you as an attractive nuisance.
  9. He can tell you the risk of being injured from (a) sleeping on the top bunk, (b) using a propane heater, (c) riding in the back of a pick-up truck, (d) driving a car on the Northway, or (e)  riding an ATV.
  10. She tries to defend the Big Bad Wolf in Little Red Riding Hood.

  1. Erac would probably qualify. He sounds like trouble.
    Gman – when did you learn to think like a lawyer?
    Dave – Et tu Brute. It takes one to know one.

  2. Given that we’re speaking about things within the region of #You Know You’re Talking to a Lawyer When . . . INDIE ALBANY, For some people, they feel as though the law is there merely to protect their interests, and that they have no need for daily interaction. However, they assume that if the day comes where their behaviour is called into question, the law will operate, the course of justice will be run, and the will of the people will be fulfilled. This is perhaps a naïve interpretation of the function of law, and indeed the way it operates in our lives throughout the day. For instance, at the top level we have the constitution, establishing parameters within which the government can and cannot act to protect the citizens of our nation. That has an overwhelming effect on the way in which our government and indeed our country is run, which has a knock on effect on everything we do throughout the day and how we do it. Even at a local level, the law interacts with the services we are provided, the jobs we work and pretty much everything to do with the lives we lead. A distant concept? I don’t think so.
