Consultation Fee – Cunning Lawyer
A cat came running round the corner heads straight to the meat shop and before the butcher could do anything takes a piece of meat in its mouth and runs away. The butcher run’s after the cat and catches it only to find out that the cat belongs to a lawyer. He goes to the lawyer’s office and asks, “if a cat comes running and steals a piece of meat from my store, do I have a right to demand payment for the meat from the cat’s owner?” The lawyer answers, “Absolutely.”
“Then you owe me $29. Your cat was loose and stole meat from my shop today.”
The lawyer, without a word, hands in $29 to the butcher. The butcher, having a feeling of satisfaction, leaves.
One week later, the butcher finds a bill from the lawyer: $50 due for a consultation!!!
