  1. Probably dumb question

    I've been involved in way too many conversations surrounding bathroom talking etiquette. It seems to be the case that for men, the bathroom deadbolt is connected to the mouth, and once that door is locked, the mouth is sealed. Women on the other hand seem to be more free with their conversations in stalls, and it's apparently normal to talk to each other between stalls.
  2. Let's do lunch.....NOT

    Found a gem near my office. Caribbean rice and beans + goat gravy + homemade hot sauce for $3.15. You can add meat (jerk chicken, curried goat, curried chicken, oxtail) for a few dollars.
  3. I skim canlii every day on my lunch.
  4. Let's do lunch.....NOT

    I used to just walk to the local supermarket/deli every day and buy a fresh bun and coldcuts for under $2.
  5. Given Credit for Work

    OP, check your bank account every two weeks and see if anything is being deposited in there. That's all the credit you deserve for your work.
  6. Style of Firm Dinners

    I don't need some fancy chef to tell me what the right fork is to eat my salad with. The right fork is whatever fork I decide is the right fork.
  7. Style of Firm Dinners

    I recently went to some charity event with a 5 course meal. If it wasn't bad enough that I used the wrong utensils on the first course, the server took my clean fork and left the dirty one! I was humiliated.
  8. What did you do in your pre-articling break?

    The break between graduation and articles is called writing the bar. I do think there were a couple of weeks between writing the solicitor exam and my articling start date, although I probably wasted that week away worrying about whether I passed. edit: can confirm:
  9. Arguably my most important moments in law school were my abysmal performances in moots. Got those extremely bad learning experiences out of the way when they didn't count (as much).
  10. Levitt LLP

    Hmm... now I'm hoping I get a file with this guy...
  11. "Senior Call Pays" Rule

    God I wish I got to go to court every week.
  12. Articling vs LPP route? Need advice!

    I read this paragraph and thought you were being paid by someone from the LPP to say those things.
  13. Hired but snooping around

    I assume based on your user name it involves 101 children?
