Wordle #123 – Sneer, Sneer and Harsh.


This week’s words: Kit Sneer Pressure Classroom Transpire Sneer Harsh Disruption Angry Withdraw Reproach Lugubrious (adj.)) mournful, dismal, or gloomy, especially in an affected, exaggerated, or unrelieved manner)

The esteemed law firm Sneer, Sneer and Harsh had decided to undertake an education program with the local school as much to promote their business and as much to show their competition, the less than esteemed firm of Lawless, Swindle and Cheetham, that they had not only a social consciousness but a connection with their community.

As it transpired their classroom presentation was excellent as they regaled the students with harrowing stories from their courtroom experiences.

They put together a small kit to distribute to each student and tried to make their presence in the school the least disruption they could.

All was going well until Klaus Harsh, the senior member of the practice filled in for one of the younger Sneers. Klaus Harsh was a man used to the cut and thrust of the courtroom and so found undue pressure in the classroom with students asking him questions he could not answer.

Klaus was a lugubrious man on any good day. If he wasn’t a lawyer, he would have made an excellent funeral director as he had that hangdog look about him. The pressure of the classroom got so great he could feel the anger growing within him and as a result, withdrew before he said something that might not be considered beyond reproach. After all, Klaus was more human than most people gave him credit for.

It was a great relief to him when the education program came to an end and Sneer, Sneer and Harsh went back to what they did best, upholding the law.

    The company’s name doesn’t inspire you with much confidence…bit like the doctor at Parramatta hospital years ago…Dr Death. I kid you not – that was his name 😮

  2. Love the names of the law firms, they sound like trustworthy, friendly fellows lol

    A fun read. Odd the names of some companies though.

    Some names one would thing should be changed. We had a family member who rarely used her first given name as too many children in her classes growing up had the same name. When she married she took her husbands name – but formally changed her name to lose her first name. So now uses what was her middle name as her first, her family name as her middle and her husband’s as her surname.
