Year 3, week 8: old tricks

“You really thought I’d fall for that old trick, BabyB. I’d have thought more even of you?”

It was TopFirst and he had called me on my mobile to discuss the case in which my client’s gone missing. “I have no idea what you’re talking about,” I replied.
“Oh, come off it. Calling up my clerks with a made up solicitor’s name? You think I’m not going to check that up before spilling my guts to the clerks?”
“You’re losing it TopFirst.”
“Yeh, particularly as UpTights had warned me that you’d try this little trick sooner or later. Seems OldSmoothie’s been using it on her for years.”

Oh.
“Anyway, I thought I’d return the gesture and when I rang your clerks trying to book you for Monday they were more than happy to tell me that the case definitely wouldn’t be going ahead and I quote, “because his client’s done a runner.” Sloppy, BabyB. Look forward to seeing you in court. Oh, and by the way. For the avoidance of doubt. Guess what? We hereby withdraw even the paltry offer we made you last week. Come to court with no client and no notice to the court and I’ll be seeking wasted costs against you personally.”

Oh.
