This Is Why I Didn't Become A Lawyer

plus the fact I didn't have the grades, cash or wardrobe.

Lawyer's Price For Missing Pants: $65 Million

By Marc Fisher Thursday, April 26, 2007; Page B01

When the neighborhood dry cleaner misplaced Roy Pearson's pants, he took action.
He complained. He demanded compensation. And then he sued. Man, did he sue.
Two years, thousands of pages of legal documents and many hundreds of hours of
investigative work later, Pearson is seeking to make Custom Cleaners pay -- would
you believe more than the payroll of the entire Washington Nationals roster?

Take the time to read the link it's pure comedy gold. Of course you guessed it our plaintiff is a lawyer. Granted Mr Pearson's wearing some nice "Hickey Freeman" suits not your off the rack "Garanimal" variety that I wear.
Now to enlighten Mr Pearson here are some basic life rules, guidelines tips etc....... that I tend to follow:
Never rely on picking up anything at the dry cleaner the morning you plan to wear it. It will never work out, Mr Young has been doing my clothes for years and yes he has made a few mistakes but nothing worth suing him over.

When you take 4 day trip pack for 5 days, some things going happen at some point and you don't know where that point is at so be prepared.

Never use a fast food drive in cause you're going to get screwed. It's nothing against you it's just the way fast food restaurants operate. Just think how much money you would save every year by forgetting to put straws in a few dozen orders each day. When you go inside for your food you're in control of the straws napkins etc.....

Only buy genuine Q-tips and Pop Tarts because all of the generic versions suck.
