You give [the law profession] a bad name
Years ago, I worked for a lawyer. For a couple of months. A kind of...lawyer-y lawyer, the kind that gives them all bad names. The kind you think of when people are telling lawyer jokes. Hence I only worked there for a few months. (I took a picture of his Yellow Pages ad, it was so stereotypically bad. I might even still have his equally bad business card.) He had tons of turnover, probably because he came across as kind of slimy. Well, in the course of researching something else (don't ask) I randomly stumbled across the little gem of information that he was disbarred two years after I quit. You know why? Because people who seem slimy usually are, and they always get their comeuppance eventually.
