100 words about money being the root of all evil‘You remember my friend Janice?’

‘Course I remember her, Nan.’

‘Her daughter, she’s a lawyer and she could use some help. Lot of unfair dismissal cases and such. It’s not human rights, but it’s a start.’

‘Nah, human rights, that’s so five years ago. I was young and stupid.’

‘Idealistic, I’d call it. Didn’t you study law to help people?’

‘The internship you hated because it was so tedious?’

‘Tedious. And unpaid. You should see my starting salary, though.’
