Anybody have any good stories about a fellow attorney or staff member who was fired?

A guy in my new associate class got hammered and passed out at the firm holiday party two months after we started and then threw up all over the inside of the car of a partner who took mercy on him and drove him home. Didn’t last to the new year. Also know a guy who got fired for padding expenses and a woman fired for padding her hours. And one of our summer clerks a long time ago got fired for sexually harassing a female partner by asking her out, stalking her, and trying to grope her in an elevator.

Some guys are pathological. Some of the stuff my wife experienced at work back in the day was mind blowing. That said I do think the year of me too has gotten through to many former incorrigibles, who often think the whole thing is BS but are behaving better out of self preservation.

Staff member made a fake newspaper obituary for her grandma to call off. Impressive level of double down effort for someone who apparently didn't realize that estate planners/admins know how to confirm whether someone is dead (was the second family death in a month). I regret not attending her unemployment hearing🍿

Still alive! And I'm the same way, I'd think I'd jinx my target. Same reason I can't cancel my excessive life insurance policies...

Does anybody have tips for internal networking or reaching out to people? My coach wants me network more and to cold email people and introduce myself, but that gives me such bad anxiety (for no logical reason because anxiety) I have some pretty low confidence so this is one of those things that really stresses me out.

One of the good things to come out of this quarantine, is people spending more time developing software, due to the lack of anything else to do. There’s going to be some amazing tech coming soon

My start date got pushed back a few months. I stand the risk of violating my status (on OPT) because of the 90 day rule. I told the company and they politely asked me to figure it out. I can’t find anyone who’s hiring right now. What are my options since the company doesn’t seem to care?
