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?!"
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."
