There’s nothing like a bit of team building and, as one magic circle firm recently discovered, softball can be nothing like a bit of team building.
A group of lawyers was enjoying a spot of everyone’s favourite touchy-feely summertime sport when things suddenly got a little bit boisterous. Some hoity-toity partner kicked a poor associate, apparently for no good reason. The injured lawyer then hobbled over to the Bruce Lee wannabe, just to make amends (even though he was the poor sod who had just been kicked) only to be told by the foot-happy partner to “just play the f**king game”.
Hmm… and partners wonder why their associates hate them.
