muppet

I did a good thing last Monday

I was walking along Featherston Street back to the bank when I passed Subway. As I did so, a flyer blew across my path. On the top it said "Lawyers Wanted". I thought "that's crazy - who wants lawyers" and walked on for a moment. But then I remembered a friend who graduated from Law School last year and is still looking for permanent work. He's had bits of work here and there, but nothing permanent. So I turned round and picked up the flyer, took it to the office and mailed him with the details. I got an email back saying he'd give them a call that afternoon. This morning I got a telephone call from him: he starts there at the end of this week. This is marvellous news for him, and pretty good for me too.
