An old boss tried shaming a Lawyer turned bar owner but it didn’t go down well as she helped him redefine the meaning of “being called to bar.”
Twitter user, @Ehjeerho who is a Lawyer turned bar owner recounts how an old boss tried shaming her after she stopped by at the office she used to work but it didn’t go down well.
See what she wrote;
Stopped by my old office. Boss expressed his displeasure about my leaving legal practice. Tried to shame in front of juniors by asking me to move a motion. Smh. Told him, i’ve got 16staff on my payroll, I run the company & besides there are not enough seats in court.
Saw car keys in my hand and said I’m a big girl now. Asked for the car, told him I parked down the street… On my way driving out, I saw him & the juniors clustered at the window peeping, gave them a wave of hand and sped off. 😒
Law school churns out thousands of lawyers every year.
We all can’t be in litigation 🙄. Telling me “you shouldn’t have studied law if you’ll end up running a bar”, told him that “this is the main call to the bar”🍺🍺
Told my old colleague that law is part of who I am, my application might get rusty but basics remain. That as a business manager, i rarely flex legal muscle, something’s are settled over free beer & pepper soup. He shook me & told me how proud he was. 😄
Very few lawyers break even, especially in this Port Harcourt where they still do conventional practice. Only a few diversify & specialize. One lawyer will appear in divorce proceedings, have files for armed robbery charges & show cause in garnishee proceedings.
You can’t make good money from only practice stuck as a junior in a one man firm. Lol. When will you even buy a new bag to house your files? How much more a reasonable car😂😂😂.
Talmbout it’s not about money.
Enjoy your ride to SANship.
Nobody tells you how stressful it can be having your name in the office cause list back to back. 😒
