Time for another rule

This would be Rule No. 12. It is related to the First Corollary to Rule No. 7, which states that a good seat is, by definition, one in which you will not draw attention. Rule No. 12 is: Do not stand out. This means you want to stay off the radar of anyone with the firm. You don't want them to think you're really good, you don't want them to think you are really awful. You just don't want them to know who you are, what your name is, or anything. You want to be that guy in the middle. No distinguishing characteristics.

Well, I apparently fucked up. For some reason, the firm's privilege guru made me one of the first two people put on privilege QC (quality control, people). This means I now have to actually think, deciding whether a document is privileged or not, despite how the first reviewer coded it. This is not a preferred position. I am making the same amount of money as everyone else, but a wrong decision now can potentially get me fired. No one ever got fired for calling too much stuff privileged, but a lot of people have been fired for deciding a document is not privileged when the firm later decides that it is. Je suis really fucking unhappy.
