One Crazy Fiber Lady

Best Craigslist Post EVER

March 5th, 2010 · 12 Comments

After a few years of practicing law, I have realized that my law degree is useless and that I don’t want to be a lawyer anymore. I bought it for over $150,000 (brand new), but I will let it go for $112,281, which is the current outstanding amount of my student loan balance.

It measure 8 1/2 x 11 inches. Cum Laude version. It’s printed on super-fancy parchment paper (looks like the Constitution, but newer).

This priceless collectible will permit you to be surrounded by hobby-less, anal assholes whose entire life is dictated by hourly billing and valued by the number of typos they can pick out in any given document. Additionally, this piece of paper has the amazing ability to keep you from doing what you really want to do in life, all in the name of purported prestige and financial success. Finally, superficial girls will swoon over you with retarded thoughts of “sugar daddy” when they hear that you are a lawyer.

Please note that this piece of shit isn’t even written in English. It’s in Latin, but I have the translation.

This is actually a serious post. I will really sell this piece of shit. $112,281 or best offer. E-mail Alex.

It was really here.  I wonder how much I could sell my non-cum laude version for 😉 And people wonder why I gave it all up to become a software developer!

Craft on!

    Thanks for sharing! I’m not sure I’m going to share it with my lawyer brothers, though!

    That pretty much says it all!

    Our former lawyer, Joann, quit for the same reasons and now happily teaches history at the community college.

    Hee! I love the remark about hobby-less-ness. Wonder who does diplomas in Latin these days.

    That is how I feel, exactly. However, I don’t know if I can make any money other than practice. But one day when my kids are grown and gone, I will do what I love; and no longer be a slave to my law degree. Thanks for posting. And thanks for friending me on Ravelry.

    Very funny and very sad!!
    My son decided not too long ago to go the pre-law route in school. He just told me last night that the law courses he’s taking are proving to him that it’s all about how to get around the law and it often boils down to the judge’s interpretation. He’s disillusioned already.
