Tulkinghorn was very amused upon hearing the tale of the five unsuspecting lawyers and an in-house job at Santa’s Grotto in the North Pole.
Recruitment consultants Hughes-Castell advertised the festive vacancy as a joke, but much to its surprise received a number of serious enquires. One lawyer, who shall remain nameless, had to have the joke aspect of the ad explained several times before he believed it, and another insisted Hughes-Castell was wrong and that there must actually be a job at a company called North Pole.
Meanwhile, one lawyer’s explanation for her mistake was that she felt it could be credible as she has friends who work in the North Pole – presumably not as lawyers.
Poor old lawyers – who would have thought that they still believe in Father Christmas?
