Now, saw you’re a judge. You’re an important man; you have to look the part. So you’ll have a few quite expensive suits to wear when it’s required to look impressive.
So far, so good.
Now, say you go and get these fancy threads dry-cleaned. And somewhere along the line a mistake is made; a pair of trousers goes missing. What would you do?
I would have answered along these lines:
Well, I’m a judge, and therefore it should be safe to assume I have some living grey matter between my ears. So I’ll go to the dry cleaning place, have a chat with them and reach an equitable settlement, one where I either get my trousers back, or sufficient cash to replace them.
This is clearly not the right answer. The right answer is to take them to court. And ask for $54,000,000.
Thankfully, you then fail in your case. But you’re still drawing a salary from the same legal system that you tried so hard to screw.
Which is a tad worrysome, methinks.
Didn’t the Honourable and Blessed Sir Bono of Hewson have some incredibly important trousers also?
