  • The local United Way office donations

    The local United Way office realized it had never received a donation from the town's most successful lawyer.
    A fundraiser called him up and said, "Sir, our research shows that you have an income of over $600,000, but you don't give a penny to charity. Wouldn't you like to give back to your community?"
    The lawyer replied, "Did your research show that my mother is dying form a long illness and her medical bills are several times her income?"
    The volunteer said, "No sir, I apologize, we didn't realize..."
    The lawyer continued: "And that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair?"
    The caller was about to apologize further, but the lawyer continued: "And my sister's husband was killed in a car accident, leaving her penniless, with three children!?"
    The United Way rep was aghast and just said, "I'm so sorry."
    The lawyer continued: "And I don't give any money to them. So why should I give any to you?"
