The Evil Lawyer

Have you ever noticed how, if a book has a lawyer character, that character almost always sucks. I mean, the character is almost always inflexible and boring and stuffy and rude (even if the character ends up being a good guy - aka Mr. Darcy in Bridget Jones). The lawyer is never witty and fun, never adventurous and quirky, rarely happy. Does this forecast a sad, boring, stuck up future for me?

Well, while Miranda on SATC started out stuffy and boring, she ended up very happy and fun! I don't think you have a stuffy future ahead of you at all! :)

Hey, if it makes you feel better, nurses are usually the rather dim witted, nubile female who is oozing sex.

Yes. Save yourself. Keep your sense of humor! :)

That's an outdated stereotype, for sure! I have a friend that's a lawyer and she's perfectly lovely!
