At the offices of Messrs. Venal & Grabbit, Solicitors...

Valentine's Day? More like Divorce Day: Number of break-ups on February 14 soars
- Daily Mail


  1. Dear Messrs Venal and Grabbit,

    While we at Tightwad and Curmudgeonly commend you for this initiative, we would suggest that such initiative could be expanded upon substantially.

    For example, we have decided to keep open our offices over the entire Valentine's weekend, staffed solely by unpaid interns, (VERY junior staff keen to be rewarded with a training contract, will be available for advice via the telephone) in tandem with an annexe set up at the local social hotspot - i.e that reigion of our fair city where clubs and pubs are at their most concentrated - in order to accept initial instructions with regard to marital discord, since we find that alcohol and general inter party disappointment over this particular weekend will undoubtedly lead to a surfeit of work in the months to come which will carry substantial monetary worth.

    We, the senior partners, will unfortunately be unavailable during this busy time since we will be holidaying on the island of Necker, enjoying the full fruit of last years Valentines initiative.

    Sincerely Yours,

    Tightwad and Curmudgeonly, Solicitors and Commissioners of (Non Swearing) Oaths.

  2. Dear Tightwad and Curmudgeonly,

    What a most excellent idea! We are instructing our training contract hopefuls (not that they have much hope of getting a contract, but that's another matter) accordingly.

    Yours in profits,

    Venal & Grabbit.
