. But odds are when someone claims to be a lawyer, they are not one
I'm used to that at the library. When someone claims they are a lawyer, what they meant was either 1) they read one "Know your rights" book or 2)they are the crazy fuckers who spend everyday with one of the Vernon Code books or some other type of law books, making notes that probably mention the Devil 20x a page.
My "favorite" (as in, may he rot in hell for not sharing resources and thinking it's an emergency call to tell his friend, "I'm leaving the library and getting a beer.") is a guy who claims he is a lawyer, but he signed one of our legally binding contracts that says "you can not take one of our laptops that you signed out into the bathroom" and of course I catch him getting into the bathroom with it. He of course rolled his eyes at me when I told him he can't go into the bathroom with it and he said, "what am I suppose to do with it when I have to go to the bathroom?" This is the same guy who claims he is a business man and runs a record label.
