Why you should never accept help from a friendly lawyer.
One day a doctor’s car and a lawyer’s car collided on an isolated country road.
The lawyer, seeing that the doctor was a little shaken up, helped him from the car and offered him a drink from a bottle of whiskey the lawyer had in his car.
The doctor gladly accepted the kind gesture and handed the bottle back to the generous lawyer, who closed it and put it away.
“Aren’t you going to have a drink yourself?” asked the doctor.
“Sure, after the police leave,” replied the lawyer.
A law firm receptionist answered the phone the morning after the firm’s senior partner had passed away unexpectedly.
“Is Mr. Smith there?” asked the client on the phone.
“I’m very sorry, but Mr. Smith passed away last night,” the receptionist answered.
“Is Mr. Smith there?” repeated the client.
The receptionist was perplexed.
“Perhaps you didn’t understand me. I’m afraid Mr. Smith passed away last night.”
“Is Mr. Smith there?” asked the client again.
“Ma’am, do you understand what I’m saying?” said the exasperated receptionist.
“Mr. Smith is DEAD!”
“I understand you perfectly,” the client sighed. “I just can’t hear it often enough.”
