Disturbing Thought

Today I went to the market to pick up some groceries. I passed by the produce isle and saw several tomatoes spilled on the ground. I thought nothing of the spill, at the time, and went on with my shopping. Fifteen minutes later I returned to the produce isle and the spill was still there.

A normal person would only think to avoid the spill, but law students are not normal people.

Only, one thing ran through my head, TORT LAWSUIT!!!!

It’s disturbing when you can’t even do your marketing without law on your mind. What is law school doing to us?

After reading the name of your blog on a blogroll, I thought surely this will be good.

Turns out that you are a total douche - and you are the typical asshole/gunner law student that nonbody can stand.

Anonymous Douche bag-

I am not exactly sure where you got this idea that I am a “typical asshole/gunner law student that nobody can stand”. If it was my post on having torts on my mind at the market, the intention of the post proves the exact opposite of your claim. Being appalled and protesting a system, which demands such attention that you can’t do your shopping in peace, is a slacker value, not a gunner, whatever it takes, value.

If your claim stems from raising my hand in class to prevent the professor from hassling me in every class, then, I again, must disagree with your claim. I don’t take his BS and when he throws it at me, I throw it back. I still study far less than the average student in his class and would prefer to be silent in his class. But since I can’t, I am standing up for my dignity.

Do I study sometimes? Yes. Do I go to class? Yes. I am not stupid enough to waste my time and money on law school, if I am not going to prepare myself to succeed. I have better things to do with my time.

But I am vehemently against the stress, cut-throat competitiveness, unfriendliness, large amounts of studying, and inhumane environment of law school. I don’t buy into the B.S. If I need time off, I take it. If others need my notes, I share them. And most importantly when I value something more than law school, I put the right amount of time into it. Does this put me behind a lot of the time? Yes. Am I lazy and don’t get to the work a lot of the time? Yes. But, I am proud of the fact that I put the proper time into law school and don’t put time into the BS.

If this means that I am not a slacker, than I am not a slacker? But I don’t think my slacker credentials are really at stake. What is at stake, is that you make broad insulting statements without any basis, and then hide behind anonymity and don’t have the courage to stand behind your statements.
