Just One DUI? C'mon!

There was one good moment on day 2 at orientation. A guy from the bar came to scare the shit out of everyone. If you have a lot of felonies or bad credit than watch out. I'm guessing the anxiety of starting law school plus this guy's warning created the perfect storm for some people.

In the moot court room which filled the entire incoming 1L class a guy who was part nervous, part anxious and entirely an idiot raised his hand. "What if you have one DUI? Can you still take the bar?" he asked with anger and confusion in his voice. It almost sounded like he was trying to play it off as a hypothetical at first but it was obvious who he was asking for.

The entire room broke out into laughter and the bar guy responded by saying "One shouldn't be a problem, but two..."

Funny moment in an otherwise boring day.
