I have Olympic fever, literally. Sore throat, headache, sneezing, the works and whilst other colleagues in the office have been immune to my legal lurgy, many have been competing in their own office-based events.
This week, for example, I’ve witnessed a secretary in the 400m backpedal. She claimed to have sent out an engagement letter before later confessing. We’ve also had a team of trainees in the 10m Due Diligence Dive into a sea of papers and a corporate partner in the Long Client Management Jump. The client was upset about calls never being returned promptly. Has nobody told him that the Olympics are on? In London?
Today some of my colleagues will be competing in the following events:
Men’s 100m Out Of Court Settlement Sprint
Men’s 42kg Warranty Wrestle
Women’s 62kg Trademark Taekwondo
Men’s 200m Confidential Canoe Sprint
Women’s Synchronised Shareholders Agreement
Men’s Bona Fide Boxing Match
You’ll find me in the cheap seats, cheering them on. Achoo!
