Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

Some professions, by its high academic standards and training of their students, occasionally makes dealing with these professionals a bit foreign in feeling...or maybe, out-of-place from normal daily life. Take for example, the language lawyers use because of their specialty training. It speaks very much like one from a foreign country.

time and advise from lawyers

“A lawyer’s time and advise is his stock in trade.”

Thank goodness, Jerry Seinfeld playfully describes what we all need to know before some of us travel over to foreign lawyer country:

“What are lawyers really? To me, a lawyer is basically the person that know the rules of the country. We’re all throwing the dice, playing the game, moving our pieces around the board, but if there’s a problem, the lawyer is the only person that has actually read the inside of the top of the box.”

When visiting the legal world, one usually hires a lawyer to help navigate successfully in this foreign land…

Well, it is all Greek…I mean, foreign to me.

This Weekly Photo Challenge is Foreign. According to the definition given, “Foreign… (rightly so) often brings up images of things outside of your own nation, it can also apply to things outside of or different from your normal environment, or even something which is out of place in general.”

      Yep, the medical field is another foreign language all its own, Angelswhisper. Yep, yep, yep…plus they have their own handwriting codes to go along with the language. haha…
      I had a great Sunday and my apologies for such a late response back to you. Where do the days go?!?

    A fun take on the challenge, and it reminds me what I have always said. One only needs to learn Greek to be able to understand all languages. Now I can add laws…

    There are many jobs that seem foreign to me because they have their own lingo and sayings that just sound like code! I remember sitting in a courtroom for three months and at the beginning I was kinda lost but after awhile I started picking up on the things they would say and understand what they actually meant! 🙂

      Hey, Cafe,
      Yeah, I guess repetition is the key and surrounding ourselves in the language spoken helps to grasp it a lot quicker. I appreciate the visit and chat 🙂

    That is so true. Other professions that is not in conjunction to ours will feel foreign. I’m used to medical stuff and terms and law, architecture, economics are foreign and unfamilar. Great post.

      Island T., now that you mention it…we can never, ever say those dreaded words…”I’m so b-o-r-e-d” when there is so much to discover!!

      Thanks for braving the uncharted foreign law land…haha. 🙂
