True Story

A barrister of my acquaintance, who specialises in family and children's law, was recently briefed to deal with a matter in court. He prepared the case, and as sometimes happens the hearing went ahead but ended rather earlier than expected.

Blessing his luck, my learned friend joined some friends for a round of golf in the afternoon. As golfers do, the party laid little bets on longest drive, nearest the pin, and suchlike harmless nonsense.

At the end of the day, totting things up, our man discovered that he had made more from his wagers than he had been paid for his professional services.
