This is a question Stupid Colleagues

Godwin's Lawyer tells us: "I once worked with a lad who believed 'Frankenstein' was based on a true story, and that the book was written by Shirley Bassey." Tell us about your workplace dopes.

I work in court at the Old Bailey
A few months ago one of our ushers was about to bring a judge into the courtroom but had misplaced his door knocker. It was to his detriment that he decided to use the ill-advised substitute of a packet of Polos, which promptly exploded and showered down around them both like painful minty confetti.

Another time he accidentally fell asleep during a fairly tedious hearing. Upon waking he mistook a pause in breath for the end of the day and in his loudest and jolliest voice stood up and announced 'COURT RISE!' right in the middle of the judge's ruling.

I used to be a Magistrates' Courts usher
What a laugh that job was. Most of the staff were frankly barking.

The staff seem comparatively normal!
Last week my clerk said to me 'Just so you're not alarmed, the defendant may growl and chuckle in the dock.' A wonderful place to work :)

Oh yes, the defendants certainly liven the place up!
Especially the Touretters.
