I got a new job!

Post by LittleBear »

After several months of seeing the overdraft increase as my useless Clerks failed to bill any of my cases due to Computer difficulties. (Ie despite having a years notice that the new software would not work on windows 98, they didn't get around to installing at least XP), I have just been offered a place at a defense only Bar Marked, Quality Marked and ISCN 9000 marked Chambers. My old Clerks details have been passed on to the Assassins Guild!

You know those who, having been mugged and stabbed, fired, dog run over, house burned down, wife eloped with best friend, daughters becoming prostitutes and their countries invaded - still say that "all is well"?
I'm obviously not one of them.

Possibly... although I suspect a modern barrister like LittleBear will have an electronic wig. An iWig, if you will.

You could hide headphones under a barrister's wig :twisted:

OOops, sorry, nearly too busy spamming to remember what the thread was about - Well Done, that little bear in the corner - or should that be, "Right On , Commander!"...

Leave tommorow. Will have the statisfaction of slamming my resgination letter down "The Prisoner" style and walking out to start on Monday. Not having been paid for anything since May has not been fun! Thanks guys. Ooliting has helped keep me insane during some difficult times. My Q-mine is armed and as I am still cloaked the Clerks don't suspect a thing. Met new Clerk today and transfered all my work.

"Then hear me speak now: Exterminate! Exterminate!" (last Dalek)

"Revenge is a dish best served cold." (old Kingon proverb.)

As thread readers will have gathered RL has hampered my OXPing, but I will get round to finishing Wacky Racers. Should be out at least before X-mass.

Oh and TGHC, you can hide headphones under a Judges Wig, but not a barristers. Ours don't go down far enough at the sides. :wink:
