The very successful lawyer parked his brand-new BMW in front of the
office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he got out, a
truck came along, too close to the curb, and completely tore off the
driver's door of the BMW. The counselor immediately grabbed his
cell phone, dialed 911, and it wasn't more than 5 minutes before a
policeman pulled up. Before the cop had a chance to ask any
questions, the lawyer started screaming hysterically. His BMW,
which he had just picked up the day before, was now completely ruined and
would never be the same, no matter how the body shop tried to make it
After the lawyer finally wound down from his rant, the cop shook his
head in disgust and disbelief. "I can't believe how materialistic
you lawyers are," he said. "You are so focused on your possessions that
you don't notice anything else."
"How can you say such a thing?" asked the lawyer.
The cop replied, "Didn't you know that your left arm is missing from the
elbow down? It must have been torn off when the truck hit you."
"My God!" screamed the lawyer. "Where's my Rolex?"
