Glad tidings of comfort and joy
A lawyer has raised eyebrows at Howes Percival by sending a female partner a 'stress willy' as a Secret Santa gift.
Staff in the firm's Leicester office had to post their Secret Santa presents directly to individuals. A male insolvency solicitor decided the perfect prezzie for a partner was a squeezy dong to relieve tension, according to a source.
"It was a case of 'whodunnit' until the male solicitor confessed" to the female partner, said the insider.
Howes Percival did not respond to repeated requests for comment about the gifting of the squashable member.
It was not the only firm where the spirit of Christmas took a peculiar turn. At Harneys, two partners "thought it would be funny to send a potato parcel with a picture of their faces to clients in lieu of the traditional bottle of champagne," a source told RollOnFriday. After some post-Christmas debate, staff concluded that the clients may not have received it "all that well," said the source.
Harneys did respond to requests for comment.
