A lawyer’s dog, running about unleashed, beelines for a butcher shop and steals a roast.
The lawyer answers, “Absolutely.”
“Then you owe me $40.00. Your dog was loose and stole a roast from me today.”
The lawyer, without a word, writes the butcher a check for $40.00.
Several days later the butcher opens the mail and finds a bill from the lawyer: $200.00 due for a consultation.
