There was a heated discussion in the backseat. future lawyer of americaReid(8):   There is NO WAY you would make it all the way through law school. Rhett(6):   I could so. It is YEARS and YEARS. I could do it. No you can’t. I can!   I am going to be a lawyer just like Ryan. Ryan(11):   Rhett, law school is going to be hard, but you can probably do it. Reid:   That is why I am going to be a janitor.   I don’t want to go to school forever. Ryan:   You do NOT want to be a janitor. Yes I do.   I am going to be a janitor. Janitors don’t make very much money.   You won’t have enough money to live on. Janitors make $15 an hour and I will work 12 hours a day.   12 x 15 equals a LOT. {I looked back in the rear view mirror to see Reid deep into calculations in his head.} You should really be a lawyer.   It is WAY more than $15 an hour. But they have to go to school for a long time.   I just have to go to janitor school.   It is short.   MOM!   How long is janitor’s school? Me:   I don’t even know.   It might be a weekend course or on-the-job training. SEE!   You will be studying for YEARS and I will be making money as a janitor. But you will be CLEANING! Yes.   Cleaning is easy for me. {Here is where I roll my eyes…no one in my house has demonstrated cleaning skills that would be worthy of pay.} But you will be at risk for Mesothelioma! Only an 11 year old with a bright class action trial law future would think of such a thing.
