Random Ramblings 5: One of those days II

Today was one of those days. Just like the other though probably worse.

Woke up late for the last day of trial. Late as in Court has already started late. This time round the alarm wasn't set and the past two nights of preparations till 4 am didn't help. Thankfully Ms A. was there to hold the fort for a while.

Client/witness made a significant boo-boo on the stand. It is never pleasant to be rudely surprised by sudden disclosures at trial. It is even worse to learn of some entirely new vital piece of information from your own client when he/she is being cross examined on the stand.

My witness was a pain in the ass. An unpleasant one at that and the cross ex didn't go very well. To top it off, I lost my ring, somewhere, somehow. Wonderful.

I don't know how lawyers lead such a life. I'll drop dead in two months if I have to work till 4am regularly.

I make it a point not to do it on a regular basis if that helps ^^
