This one's for Ezra, our resident wrestling fan.
Above The Law's Summer Associate of the Day brilliantly illustrates (1) that going to law school and getting a summer job at a BigLaw firm does not signify that you have better than a room-temperature IQ, and (2) dangerously entertaining culture shock occurs when students get into a real professional workplace for the first time, having previously interacted with other people mostly over kegs:
[A]t a summer event last night, one the Schulte summers — let's call him Randy Savage — unaware of the identity of a particular stranger, put him in a headlock and called him a (homophobic insult redacted) for wearing a Yankees jersey.
The stranger then asked Randy Savage: "Do you know who I am?" Randy Savage replied: "No, you punk."
Said "punk" turned out to be a Schulte partner. The fate of Mr. Savage is currently unknown.
I can understand hating on the Yankees, because the Yankees are the closest we have to the Galactic Empire. And I can understand how a Red Socks fan might get hired, possibly as a result of the strictures of the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990. But I wonder: did this guy simply realize that BIGLAW was not for him, and decide that he wanted to leave in the most spectacular way possible?
If I find his name I'll post it.
