A very successful attorney parked his brand new
Lexus in front of his
office, ready to show it off to his
colleagues. As he was getting out, a
truck came along too closely and
completely tore off the driver’s door.
Fortunately, a cop in a police car was
close enough to see the accident and
behind the Lexus with his lights flashing.
Before the cop had a chance
to ask any questions, the attorney started
hysterically about how his Lexus, which he had just purchased
day before, was completely ruined and would never be the
same, no matter how
any car body shop tried to make it new
After the lawyer finally wound down from his rant, the cop shook
his head in
disbelief. “I can’t believe how materialistic you
lawyers are,” he said.
“You are so focused on your possessions that you
neglect the most important
things in life.”
“How can you
say such a thing?” asked the lawyer.
The cop replied, “Don’t you even
realize that your left arm is missing? It
was severed when the
truck hit you!”
“OH, MY GOD!!!” screamed the lawyer. “My Rolex!!”
