No sense of gratitude

I was in Court last week waiting for my case to be called on and watching others ahead of me in the list.

One chap made me laugh, he went into the dock where he entered a guilty plea to an assault charge, I think it was ABH.  The judge said he would like a pre-sentence report before passing sentence and that the defendant could have bail until it was ready.

Leaving the Court, the defendant was shaking his head and moaning to his wife/girlfriend about the terrible system and how much time and money it wasted in not dealing with cases quickly.

He didn't seem to have thought that he could have saved all the time and money by simply not launching his unprovoked attack on an innocent bystander.
