Growing up, we find ourselves being governed by the "laws" our parents created for us. "No boys in your room," "No shoes inside," "No food upstairs," etc. After all, their house, their rules, right? But growing up in a household where one or more of your parents actually studies the law, you not only learn right from wrong but also how to cover your ass in tough situations (thanks, dad). So, if your living room was filled with dusty old books nobody read and completed crossword puzzles, or you found yourself constantly talking about depositions at the dinner table, then you know what I'm talking about. Here are 25 indisputable pieces of evidence that you will consent to if you're the child of a lawyer (trust me, I'm right on this):
1. You have an undeniable urge to object whenever someone says something ignorant in class
2. Your family's favorite games to play involve words: Scrabble, Bananagrams, Boggle, etc.
because your parent always kicked your a** at Clue.
3. You always sent your parent your essays to edit
4. Because growing up, any field trip forms or permission slips had looked like this
5. You could recite your Miranda Rights before the Pledge of Allegiance
6. And any potential boyfriend or girlfriend can expect more than just the usual cross-examination
7. You've successfully talked your way out of a parking or speeding ticket
because you can
8. Yellow legal pads always sort of just appeared
and they were everywhere
9. Asking your parents for something involved a power-point presentation and a 10-page plea
"Hello. Thank you for agreeing to speak with me today, your time and consideration. Here are just a few *42* reasons why you should let me eat my dinner in the bath"
