Lawyer Job Interview
There was a job opening in the country's most prestigious
law firm and it finally comes down to Robert and Paul. Both
graduated magna cum laude from law school. Both come from
good families. Both are equally attractive and well-spoken.
It's up to the senior partner to choose one, so he takes
each aside and asks, "Why did you become a lawyer?" In
seconds, he chooses Paul.
Baffled, Robert takes Paul aside. "I don't understand why I
was rejected. When Mr. Armstrong asked me why I became a
lawyer, I said that I had the greatest respect for the law,
that I'd lay down my life for the Constitution and that all I
wanted was to do right by my clients. What in the world did
you tell him?"
"I said I became a lawyer because of my hands," Robert
"Your hands? What do you mean?"
"Well, I took a look one day and there wasn't any money in
either of them!"
