Tales of the Giant Crab – 11
During most of the time I’ve written about Walt being in
Washington. he was going to law school. He finally graduated and had to
take the District of Columbia bar exam. To ensure he wouldn’t be late for it, he
rented a hotel room very close to the exam site and stayed in it studying .
He called the hotel switchboard and asked the person at the desk
to make sure that his room would get a wake up call early enough so
that he would have plenty of time to get to the exam. When he
woke up the following day ,he realized he had never received the call, and he was very late. The exam had already started. He hurriedly dressed. By the time he actually arrived
at the bar exam, it was half over. He wound up having to take it again many months afterwards which was the next time it was it was given.
