Harley's Humor


January 4, 2019

A local United Way rep realized it had never received a donation from the town’s most successful lawyer. The rep in charge of contributions called to persuade him to contribute. “Our research shows that out of a yearly income of more than $600,000 you gie not a penny to charity. Would’t you like to give back to the community in some way?” the rep said.

The lawyer mulled this over for a moment and replied, “First, did your research also show that my mother is dying after a long illness, and has medical bills that are several times her annual income?”

Embarrassed, the rep mumbled, “Um ... No.”

“Second, that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair?” The stricken United Way rep began to stammer out an apology, but was cut off.

“Third, that my sister’s husband died in a traffic accident,” the lawyer’s voice rising in indignation, “leaving her penniless with three children?”

“I had no idea...” said the rep.

On a roll, the lawyer cut him off once again, “. . . and I don’t give any money to them, so why should I give any to you?!”
