If you ever want to feel like a complete idiot in front of a bunch of people, try being your own lawyer in court.
I had to go to court to get my inheritance from my husband who passed away in July without a will. I didn't want some blood-sucking lawyer to take half of my savings, so I went to court without a lawyer. And of course the judge used a bunch of confusing legal jargon that left me with a confused look on my face. I felt like an utter retard. But in the end he approved me to have the full powers to make a petition to distribute funds. I suppose it's worth looking like a complete retard to save my savings.
