The story of Knocker Uppers and a lesson for lawyers

A few days back, I was reading about the Industrial Revolution in Europe when I came across the story of ‘knocker-uppers’.

#knockerupper #lesson #lawyers #revolution
It was a profession in Britain and Ireland that started during the Industrial Revolution. This was prevalent even in the 1920s when alarm clocks were priced exorbitantly and were not reliable. A knocker-upper's job was to rouse sleeping people so they could get to work on time.
They would wake up their clients by tapping on their bedroom windows. On the street outside, walking to the next customer's house would be a figure wielding a long stick.

"His phone rang in masjid by accident during prayers.

The imam gave a short sermon after prayer and made him a reference point to careless worshiper.

Other worshippers around him admonished him after prayers too for interrupting.
His wife kept on lecturing him for his carelessness too when he got home.

Other brothers shook their heads in disgust.

You could see the shame, embarrassment and humiliation on his face.

He never stepped foot in the masjid again.

That evening, he went to a bar.
He was still very nervous and was trembling from his shame.

He ordered a drink.

He spilled his drink on the table, the bottle falls by accident too and some of the contents splashed on some of the people around.

Those it splashed rushed towards him.
