Frozen!



"TTT, I was just staffed on a project overseen by a cold blooded reptile. She would literally BLAST the AC like you wouldn't believe, and would constantly bitch to the maintenance men about how supposedly "warm" it was. Can anyone say early onset menopause? It's no fun standing at the bus stop in the sweltering early summer heat wrapped up like Nanook of the North in your winter coat. Thirty people are absolutely fucking miserable, but nobody has the courage to stand up and say anything. Market is so rotten, so-called professional admitted attorneys are afraid of rocking the boat and being blacklisted and frozen out of low rate $20 an hour temp gigs. We all rather spend our summer days hauled up in a windowless supply closet, cryogenically frozen like Walt Disney, praying that we don't come down with pneumonia lacking health insurance. We should all kill ourselves now."

That's because..in the event that anybody did speak up, there are, sadly, many of us pathetic enough to wish we could be on this project.

Yes, I feel the same way, please kill me now.

40,000 JD's are being pumped out as we speak. 365 days later, another 40,000. It's only going to get worse.

Why don't you? Nothing better than a lawyer who gives up on life and ends it all.

Hey fellow scambloggers, I've started a blog. Hopefully this will destroy the idea that higher-ranked schools are morally sound and that their students are fine.

while i agree that there are miserable pay conditions in the market right now, this complaint is ridiculous.

first of all, if it's cold, nobody's telling you to dress up bundled "like a nanook" even outside of the office. normal people take off their jackets in the heat and hold them in their hands. or better yet, leave the jacket at the office, as you don't need it anywhere else. (although, if you're afraid your colleagues will steal it, then I guess that's a valid concern)

second of all, you should count yourself lucky because being in a cold environment is an exponentially better situation compared to being in a hot environment. You can always just put on more clothes. You can't rip off your freakin' skin. (well, I guess you can, but the point is it is easier to deal with a cold environment than a hot one.)

10:53 is on the mark. This is going to get FAR WORSE. When you have Ivy-League law graduates/recent admittees doing doc review next to you, and sociopaths control the temperature of the room....you can be deaf, dumb, blind, mute with a third eye in the middle of your forehead and realize that it's going to get worse. $18/hour average nationwide in 2011.

Christ, that sounds like the gig I'm working on. It's some closeted foreigner who initially caused the temperature trouble (not Nigerian, but his home country's initials are NZ). Yeah, I do want to kill myself...the truth of this type of existence just walloped us.

Kill yourself, please. Spare us your self-pity.

Quit your bitchin', you little pussy - hordes would gladly take your place, and the unlicensed will do the work for less and not complain.

I hate people like you, dumbass bitch.

Now listen to me carefully and do exactly as I say: go to the bathroom, open up that razor blade and slash down your wrists. Remember, down! Not across. Do it. Do it now!

Dear 1:39 A.M.,

Put a gun barrel in your mouth and pull the trigger, you worthless faggot.

Thanks.

Can someone please take video of some stuff at doc reviews and post on youtube? the world needs to see this stuff.

Quit the bitching about it being cold. It should be cold, because it keeps you awake. The project I'm on has had the temps over 90 in the office, and we can't dress down for the heat, so it is miserable. And it is always the women who are cold. Here's a tip ladies, don't wear a see through silk dress to work and you might not be cold. Just a thought.

Catching pneumonia at work might be a novel way of claiming short-term disability, getting you some much needed rest (just make sure you've got the meds to recover from it). (Snap) Mmmm...you actually need health insurance to get meds. Never mind....

Recent media states that at least (minimum) ten(10) law schools are admitting to lowering grading standards merely to assist their graduates in their job hunting. Not only is this a complete outrage, but it further supports what everyone who graduated law school in '60s through '80s knew long ago, and witnessed e.g. not very P.C. to recite.

The point being is that the law schools are enabling a culture of to be guaranteed unfulfilled expectations to advance social policy of those who could care less about actual standards, and more about political theory and victimization.

Clients, partners, law firms, corporations, legal aid, and the law graduates themselves are being fxxxxx over, by their own profession and its leaders.

Lowering standards does nothing but guarantee that the best jobs will go to those with stronger skills from other countries, and who attended law schools outside the U.S., who then attend the LL.M programs at NYU and Columbia - and who will actually get the jobs.

If you are merely in law school because it is "there" and you can get student loans, knowing you might appear to be better than you are because of intentional grade inflation - do yourself and the world a favor - stay away. You are on a path to professional suicide because sooner or later your "fraud" will be discovered. You'll last 3 years at best, because no one will trust your work.

Just look at the people who work at these projects. They are self-entitled losers who lack the ability to think outside the box.

The reality of being a monkey clicker clashes constantly with their faggoty image as an "esquire." Don't waste your time with these types. Let them expire of their own accord.
