Why A Lawyer?
There was a job opening in the countryís most prestigious law
firm and it finally comes down to Robert and Paul.
Both graduated magna cum laude from law school. Both come
from good families. Both are equally attractive and well
spoken. Itís up to the senior partner to choose one, so he
takes ech aside and asks, "Why did you become a lawyer?" In
seconds, he chooses Paul.
Baffled, Robert takes Paul aside. "I donít understand why I was
rejected. When Mr. Armstrong asked me why I became a
lawyer, I said that I had the greatest respect for the law, that Iíd
lay down my life for the Constitution and that all I wanted was to
do right by my clients. What in the world did you tell him?"
"I said I became a lawyer because of my hands," Robert replies.
"Your hands? What do you mean?"
"Well, I took a look one day and there wasnít any money in
either of them!"
