A lawyer’s dog, running about unleashed, headed for the local butcher’s shop and steals a roast off the counter.
The butcher goes to the lawyer’s office and asks, “if a dog, running unleashed steals a piece a piece of meat from my store, do I have the right to demand payment for the meat from the dog’s owner?” “Absolutely”, the lawyer responded.
The butcher immediately shot back, “Good! You owe me $7.99 for the roast your dog stole from me this morning.”
The lawyer, without a word, writes the butcher a check for $7.99.
A few days later, the butcher browsing through his mail, finds an envelope from the lawyer.
The content reads “For your Consultation: $25.00.”
