It's the time of the month and I'm so easily annoyed with things which I normally would not layan... So, please bear with me on this, okay?
I was waiting for my turn at the bank this morning, when this girl walked in. She looked quite "high and mighty", if I may add - wearing a black skirt and a white top, with her hair neatly tied in a bun. And my first thought was, "Hmmmm....she's probably a student from the Law Faculty, and she probably had just finished a mooting competition, or session, or training at the Law Faculty or something like that".
Yup, she looked THAT young, and quite inexperienced.
She sat beside me, and suddenly her phone rang, and this was what transpired -
"Hello? Yes...I'm at the bank now. You're still in court? I was there the whole of this morning. XYZ is till there. The hearing is still going on. I'm going back to court after this. Uh-um...Uh-um...Okay. I'll see you there later, okay? I should be back in court in about an hour or so, etc."
(Or something like that lah...)
And I think everybody sitting at the waiting area could hear every word she said.
Firstly - Hello?! You're in a bank, and you're not supposed to use your handphone, dear.
And secondly - you could surely lower down your voice when you answered the call, couldn't you? Or you could just answer your phone outside the bank? Unless of course you WANTED everybody to listen to your conversation?
(And I suddenly remembered what Phoebe said in one of the FRIENDS series when somebody asked her for a favour and she said, "Oooohhh, I wished I could, but I don't want to!" Hehehe!)
And I thought THAT was so applicable to Little Miss Legal-in-Black-n-White this morning.
Please don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to generalize here and put all legal freshies down, because I know for a fact that not all freshies in the legal fraternity are like that. But there ARE a few who act so like they're "Partners" already when they're in fact still chambering, maaa!! Why aaaaarr like that?
In fact, sometimes when I go to hospitals pun, some of the housemen act more terrer than their consultants!
Oh, puhleeez la, girl. Been there, done that laa... You were probably in court the whole morning doing a few mentions and some J-I-Ds here and there ajer pun...
And you were probably still in your diapers when I was called dulu.
Rasa macam nak bagi ajer kat lawyer hingus meleleh tu my call card tadi...But, then again, I'm not that cruel...
But, hmmmmm, in retrospect, maybe I should have, kan?
That should get it into her that there are so many out there yang dah makan asam garam longer than her. Tak payah lah nak aksi unnecessarily. Bukan boleh menang kes pun...
Hmmmmphhh... Okay, dah lepas tension. Hehehe! :)
