It's a good thing that no one has put me in charge of anything

Summer Associates are everywhere in my building and in areas that I traverse frequently (The Courthouse). They are well dressed. Bright eyed. Bushytailed. And are the legal profession’s version of lambs being led to the slaughter. Or lemmings being marched to their death. Either way they are funny to see out of their offices. I really think that their managing partners/associates should be like: ‘I have to have this filed in the next 20 minutes. I’m not going to tell you where the courthouse is, how or where you file it, or anything else you may need to know. But you have to do it. If you fail, don’t bother coming back to the office. Ever.’

That would make my encounters with them so much the better.
