Sometimes you just have to laugh!
And for fairness, next up will be a joke about title insurance companies.
If you think lawyers don’t have hearts, read the best lawyer story of all time…Bar none.
The Salvation Army realized that it had never received a donation from the city’s most successful lawyer, so a volunteer paid the lawyer a visit in his lavish office.
She opened the meeting by saying, ‘Our research shows that even though your annual income is over two million dollars, you don’t give a penny to charity.
Wouldn’t you like to give something back to your community through our fine organization?’
The lawyer thinks for a minute and says, ‘First, did your research also show you that my mother is dying after a long, painful illness and she has huge medical bills that are far beyond her ability to pay?’
Embarrassed, the rep mumbles, ‘Uh… no, I didn’t know that.’
‘Secondly,’ says the lawyer, ‘did it show that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair and is unable to support his wife and six children?
The stricken woman begins to stammer an apology, but is cut off again.
‘Thirdly, did your research also show you that my sister’s husband died in a dreadful car accident, leaving her penniless with a mortgage and three children, one of whom is disabled and another that has learning disabilities requiring an array of private tutors?’
The humiliated representative, completely beaten, says, ‘I’m so sorry. I had no idea.’
And the lawyer says, ‘So, if I didn’t give any money to them, what makes you think I’d give any to you?’
