Some days are better than others in this line of work. Some days are spent on endless and frustrating telephone calls to banks and insurers, trying to further client cases.
And then there are days like today. A client called to say his redress cheque had arrived and rather than be boring and pay off the credit card, he and his wife had decided to treat their kids to a holiday of a lifetime this summer in Disneyland. Many of their children’s friends had been and, of course, their kids had begged them to go. Very hard for a parent to always have to say no to such things. But no longer – they will be on their way in August.
Days like this make all the hassles worthwhile.
