Part of being a good lawyer is gathering all the facts. I know that sounds like something that Captain Obvious would say. Of course, you have to ask the right questions to get the true facts.
Which brings me to a story on that thought:
A salesman was knocking on doors along a country road. He came upon a farmhouse that was surrounded by a picket fence. There, sitting on the porch sat an old farmer. Inside the fence there was a mean-looking dog lying on the ground.
The salesman called over the fence to the farmer, “Does your dog bite?”. The farmer shook his head and answered that his dog does not bite. The salesman then confidently opened the fence and walked toward the farmer to show him what he was selling.
Suddenly, the dog attacked the salesman viciously and bit him. The salesman was able to shake the dog off and jump back over the fence. With his pants torn, he hollered back at the farmer, “I thought you said that your dog doesn’t bite”.
The farmer answered, “My dog doesn’t bite, but that’s not my dog”.
And for pic o’ day
