There I was getting ready for a nice Friday night when the telephone rings at five to five in the afternoon. A barrister, no less on the other end of the phone. Wants to know if it’s possible to serve a court order on-the-hurry tonight, before 9 pm? “Yes,” I tell him, “no problem one of my London Process Servers will do it”.
So at 8 pm I am in the middle of the east end knocking on someone’s door and would you believe it, there’s no one home. I must come back tomorrow!
But why are these Court Orders always obtained on a Friday afternoon and why do they always have to be served on the hurry? What’s wrong with Tuesday or Wednesday?
