Lawyer$$$

Recently I had to engage in legal services (no I was not misbehaving or in any trouble!) and my jaw nearly hit the floor when I saw those costs. The whole time I had my appointment I was so stressed out about the legal hourly costs. They are the ones that would do your head in! When it got to one hour I started freaking out and packing up my stuff.

I think in the future I might stick to reading legislation and judiciary websites myself and trying to wrap my own head around legal concepts – instead of paying someone else to do it for me.

SO was going to have kittens when he saw that bill from an hourly to nearly two hours. Clearly I went for the wrong industry. Making between $300-900 for an hour’s work is absolutely crazy. What is that money spent on doing?

This hilarious picture sums up my experience.
