Dining out on the firm’s dime: a time-honored law firm tradition, and one of the perks I enjoyed as a summer associate and associate. A couple of many memorable experiences described below….
The Palm, Bruce McNall at the next table,
2 inch-thick filet and all the fixings,
And you ordered a fucking pinot grigio!
No wonder we lost that client.
The Worst Behavior of All Time
Just because you make a million or two and we’re in the private dining room
Doesn’t give you the right to treat the waiter like shit
Just for the hell of it.
I was so naïve in those days.
