Funny Lawyer Story

Funny Lawyer Story

A lawyer arrived home late, after a very tough day trying to get a stay of execution for a client who was due to be hanged for murder at midnight. His last minute plea for clemency to the governor had failed and he was feeling worn out and depressed.

As soon as he walked through the door at home, his wife started on him about, 'What time of night to be getting home is this? Where have you been? Dinner is cold and I'm not reheating it'. And on and on and on.
Too shattered to play his usual role in this familiar ritual, he went and poured himself a shot of whiskey and headed off for a long hot soak in the bathtub, pursued by the predictable sarcastic remarks as he dragged himself up the stairs.
While he was in the bath, the phone rang. The wife answered and was told that her husband's client, James Wright, had been granted a stay of execution after all. Wright would not be hanged tonight.
Finally realizing what a terrible day he must have had, she decided to go upstairs and give him the good news. As she opened the bathroom door, she was greeted by the sight of her husband, bent over naked, drying his legs and feet. 'They're not hanging Wright tonight,' she said.
To which he whirled around and screamed, 'FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, WOMAN, DON'T YOU EVER STOP?'

Good one, Sam

Believable, too. Of course, a story about a lawyer having a bad day is always welcome. And we've all known women like that. Some of us have even married them - before we came to our senses & ditched them.

Amen

That chick could have been my ex. If I got her a gold plated Cadillac, she would bitch because it wasn't platinum, and then she would bitch about how much it costs, then she would bitch because the leather had too much Armor All on it, then she would bitch because the radio wasn't programmed right for her, then she would bitch because I didn't earn enough money at my three jobs and then she would bitch because I didn't have her dinner on the freaking table when she got in from sitting at her freaking desk all day, eating bon bons and talking on the damn phone...

What were we talking about?
