Yesterday one of my clients told me a story about a plumber who did an insurance based job for her. That's part two, but here's the first.
He said he had to call a barrister. Apparently he was sent a notice which said he was clocked speeding. So in an effort to throw the authorities off the scent he said it wasn't him driving, it was his mate.
So who's your mate? er,. He then made up one, who obviously cannot be found.
By the way, was your mate insured to drive your car? Well of course he was. Duh!
Needless to say he's been called to account hence the barrister.
My client asked why he didn't just admit the offence in the first place. No way.
Having fixed a leaky wash basin he billed the client for the best part of £600, justifying the price on 'it being an insurance job'.
Client wants a receipt, he doesn't have his book. Thankfully he doesn't get the money. Unfortunately; for him, my client happened to be a retired police women. Oh dear.
Probably needed the money to pay the barrister.
What's with some people. They get in a hole and just keep digging.
