The mistake I will not repeat...

Yesterday I went to court and by the time I arrived at the bankruptcy department it was still early in the morning. Making people bankrupt is one of the scopes of work which lawyers keen to do. I was among the first as I noticed only 2 or 3 lawyers with the always boring black and white outfits were there, and I expect that my matter will settle earlier so I can straight away go to the Bar Council library to do some research for my master. I approached the clerk at the counter hoping that I can get an early turn but she asked me to check the list of cases on the notice board, and to my surprise my firm’s turn is on number 49 - meaning the last case to be called up. Heh, what the h*** am I doing here in the morning when my turn will only be called in the late afternoon. Can someone just change the rules to the first come first serve basis so it will not abuse the right of those who came earlier.huhuh. I have this kind of submissive attitude (which is not good), so I decided to wait.

Time flipping fast like pages in the book and I realised that I had procrastinated too much time sitting and waiting at the corner of the room. The room was crowded with lawyers who were waiting for their cases to be called before the Senior Assistant Registrar. I glanced at the lawyer beside me who was snoozing soundly; the one in front of me was busily whispering over the phone while I myself kept stretching my legs and covering my mouth to muffle a yawn. The big clock struck 12 times, breaking the silence, my empty stomach rumbled asking to be filled since it was almost lunch hour and I haven’t had my breakfast yet.

There was no sign for my turn to be called up and I was extremely bored so I stuffed my ears with the earphones and switched on my mp3. The sound of my favourite song vibrated my eardrums, tapping one foot as I closed my eyes and hummed to the tune softly. Suddenly I felt something was not right. I opened my eyes and all eyes were actually staring and looking straight in my direction. Some were smiling and some were giving me a reproving look. It was embarrassing, and yet humiliating. Haha I wasn’t humming to the beat, I was actually singing. And everybody was like SHHHH…!!!

Moral: Don’t be 'deafened' by a loud music at the wrong place. That’s the mistake I will not repeat.
