Charity starts at home. Lawyer Joke

Mr Ry

Recommended Posts

The United Way realized that it had never received a donation from the

city's most successful lawyer. So a United Way volunteer paid the lawyer

a visit in his expensive office.

The volunteer opened the meeting by saying, "Our research shows that even

though your annual income is over a million dollars, you don't give a penny

to charity. Wouldn't you like to give something back to your community

through the United Way?"

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 United Way rep mumbles, "Uh... no, I didn't know that."

"Secondly," says the lawyer, "my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and

confined to a wheelchair and is unable to support his wife and six children."

The stricken United Way rep 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?"

The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten, says, "I'm sorry, I had no idea."

And the lawyer says, "So... if I don't give money to them, what makes you

think I would ever give any to you!"
