I have to give Dave credit for this because his description lead me to this topic.
Finally, I can pinpoint exactly what it is about law school and law students that drives me absolutely batty. It is the intense level of smugness that has lead me to refer to anyone unnecessarily smirking in law school as a “Smuggle.” A smuggle is a person who cannot actually bear the opinions and intelligence of others that rival their own. It is the snubbing of others that are not in law school. Most pointedly, it is the self-satisfaction of believing you are better than your own peers when you are decidedly not.
Pray you, the self-effacing modern student, do not befall this compelling, spreading disease.
