Putting your foot in it

A gem of an anecdote reaches the snail this month. No names, no pack drill, but rumour has it that while at a client function and very drunk, a partner at a national firm interrupted a conversation between another partner and a director of a major bank, got annoyed about something for no reason, kicked the other partner in the groin and stomped off. His departure from the firm followed soon after. Of course, his exit could also be because, according to one source, he never billed anything anyway.
