When...

You are all too familiar with your mail carrier's routine (mine takes his 30 minute lunch beginning at about 12:30 in the adjacent parking lot before delivering my building's mail)

HAH. I recently moved, and just made friends with my mailman yesterday. He told me about his route in detail. I may love him.

You know you're a law school applicant when you ignore the legions of current students on TLS warning you not to go, the recent graduates and practicing attorneys on the scamblogs who were in your shoes just a few years ago, the well-established professors who write extensively about the horrific market facing their students, and the mountain of job data which clearly demonstrates that law school is financial suicide for most students, all because you are a special snowflake who can beat the odds at your TTT and you just can't wait to become a lawyer and learn teh lawls.

... it's 7:02 in the morning and you're running late for work because you're on TLS giving careful consideration to every post (even the ones written by people who probably have no idea what they're talking about).
