“Why did I do law? Why didn’t I do something I enjoy?”
The answer to that is local law clerk Louise Degally didn’t want to die poor.
But after taking a clerkship with one of Betoota’s big six law firms, it seems that not even all the riches in town are enough to buy her soul.
“They [colleagues] keep cornering me, trying to make me sign up for the mixed netball competition they have with other firms during the lunch hour,” said the 23-year-old.
“I’d rather be skinned alive to be real with you. What is wrong with these people? Don’t they have lives outside work? No! I don’t want to be your friend, I want to be your colleague! That’s it!”
“Any why during lunch? Why? Take your lunchtime mixed netball and shove it up your arse, Lucy! And David, fuck you and your mixed touch. After work time is my time.”
However, as much as the recent graduate doesn’t want to sign up for these light sporting commitments, Louise has conceded that it’s just a matter of time until she caves.
One thing that might save her is her summer caseload, which is a ‘fate worse than touch’ according to the popular Gemini.
“I’ve got the most boring clients in the world, which is a double-edged sword I guess,” she said.
“They take up a lot of time but I’m constantly two minutes away from putting my head in the microwave and setting it to defrost,”
“But it keeps me away from inter-frim mixed netball.”
More to come.
