Overheard in Family Court...

Woman (to lawyer, in tense voice): “He is threatening to quit his second job! He can’t do that, can he? Can we stop him?”

Female Lawyer: “Don’t worry, we will take care of all of that…”

(The two woman pass out of earshot… a moment later, a stressed man arrives and begins pacing…)

Man (to me): “This is hell. Divorce is hell. No one should ever get married, you know?”

Me: “Hey, why do you think I’m here?”

I suspect that the man went with the woman, but I cannot know. But the entire exchange is very illustrative of what the court system does to men today, I think.
