The Kind Lawyer
One afternoon a lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two menalong the road-side eating grass.
Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate.
He asked one man,"Why are you eating grass?"
"We don't have any money for food," the poor man replied. "We have toeat grass."
"Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you," thelawyer said.
"But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there,under that tree."
"Bring them along," the lawyer replied.
Turning to the other poor man he stated,"You may come with us, also."The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, "But sir, I also have awife and SIX children with me!"
"Bring them all as well," the lawyer answered.
They all entered the car, which was no easy task,even or a caras large as the limousine was.
Once under way, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said,"Sir, you are too kind."
"Thank you for taking all of us with you
The lawyer replied, "Glad to do it.""You'll really love my place."
"The grass is almost a foot high."
