One of the chief hazards of being a criminal defense attorney is developing an unhealthy contempt for the populations that make up your client base — whether it's the street kids pushing dime bags or the dumbass surgeons and their ludicrous "tax shelters." It's fine to gripe about them, but it's poisonous to despise them. We don't listen to people we despise, and we sure don't fight for them the way clients deserve.
That said, I'm sympathetic to people who get worn down by the stupidity and craziness of the people they serve. In that spirit, enjoy the hair-raising stories from this thread "Things I learned from My Patients", in which emergency physicians tell life lessons taught by the dysfunctional people they treat:
2) Always wait until finishing your woodwork with the skillsaw prior to using your meth.
3) Don't swerve your Suzuki Samari to avoid hitting a squirrel in the middle of the road.
Surely some of it is made up. But it's breathtaking.
