Year 2, week 7: BlushTest

Had a chat with my instructing solicitor today.  I’ve probably done about ten cases for him in the last six months and I told him how much I appreciated the work.  He replied with,

‘Well, BabyB, it’s my pleasure.  Always happy to put bread on the table of the junior bar.’

Then without even skipping a beat, he continued,

‘Of course, I’m even happier when I can chat over those cases at Stamford Bridge.’

Well, what can you say?  It doesn’t even qualify as a hint.  More a blatant request for Chelsea tickets in return for regular work.  Now, I’ve checked this before with the Bar Standards Board guidance and it seems that the best way of deciding if it’s appropriate or not is what they call the ‘blush test’.  If it’s something that would make you blush then it’s probably inappropriate.

Which makes life very easy for me, since, as you may already have guessed, I blush at very little.  As we speak, the tickets are winging their way over.
