Oh the joys of visiting Above The Law and bravely reading through the comments on posts! Usually I make through the first ten, scroll to the end of the comments, work my way up and even then my attention only lasts about 20 seconds due to the sophmoric content.
But I love it when comments come in from non-attorney staff and are spot on. In a recent article on whether or not you should give a gift to your secretary (and if so, what item or value), there is this hidden gem:
“I hope all of you cheap bastards who don’t believe a hard-working secretary deserves at least a 5% bonus, whether you are partners or associates, all get herpes, you pass it on to your undersexed, tight-assed wives (or husbands), they divorce you, then you marry a younger spouse who gives you syphilis. Laywers are sometimes unjustifiably the most self-centered, greedy, and elitist people in this country. “
Ahhh, good times. Good holiday times.
