Amusing Conversation...

On my way home from work, while on the bus and studying my criminal law flashcards, a man tapped on my shoulder. The card on top of my pile happened to read "Second-Degree Murder." We had the following conversation:

Man (holding a cup of liquid which smelled of liquor): "What are you doing? Second-Degree Murder?"

Me: "Studying for the Bar Exam. I need to know the elements of certain crimes."

Man: "What's that?"

Me: "The exam you need to take to be a lawyer."

Man: "You're going to be a lawyer?!"

Me: "Yep."

Man: "That's great! Cause that means you can't be a Prosecutor!"

Me: (smiling) "Yep."

At that point the guy realized it was his stop and rushed off the bus. Haha, and luckily for me I was able to get back to studying.

But, in the words of Toby Flenderson (from the Office): "I'm just sad the public school system failed him so badly."

  1. I got one for you. The other day the judge was asking a defendant questions to see if she qualified for a public defender. Here's how that conversation went:

    Judge: How many years of schooling have you had?

    Defendant: Four.

    Judge: You only went to school for four year?

    Defendant: High school was four years.

    Judge: You didn't study math did you?

    Everybody in court room: LOL.
