At a Loss

with 4 comments

At dinner tonight, I tried to explain Contract Law to Sam. I began by extolling the millions of interpretations of whether a hypothetical sign across the street could actually form a contract with the consumer who views it, and if the store that the sign is in is contractually bound to sell those Maine lobsters for 4 dollars to the consumer.

She stops me after 3 different interpretations or so:

Sam: “I guess that’s the thing that I hate about law. There are so many different interpretations.”

Bill: “That’s what makes it awesome! You just have to argue your viewpoint best.”

Sam: “Yeah, but it’s hard to argue with stupid people.”

My only relevant response was “Well, I think this will make a good blog post.”
