Consultation fees

A lawyers dog, running around town unleashed, heads for a butcher shop and steals a roast. The butcher goes to the lawyers office and asks, if a dog running unleashed steals a piece of meat from my store, do I have a right to demand payment for the meat from the dogs owner? The lawyer answers, Absolutely.

Then you owe me $8.50. Your dog was loose and stole a roast from me today.

The lawyer, without a word, writes the butcher a check for $8.50. The butcher, having a feeling of satisfaction, leaves.

Three days later, the butcher finds a bill from the lawyer: $100 due for a consultation.
