    The Salvation Army in Yorkshire realised that it had never received a donation from one
    of Leeds' most successful lawyers.

    So a Salvation Army volunteer made an appointment to see the lawyer in his lavish office.

    The volunteer opened the meeting by saying, "Our research shows that even though
    your annual business turnover is about eight million pounds, you don't give a penny
    to charity. Wouldn't you like to give something back to your community through
    the Salvation Army?"

    The lawyer thought for a moment and said, "First, did your research also show you
    that my mother is dying after a long, painful illness and has huge care bills that are
    far beyond her ability to pay?"

    Embarrassed, the Salvation Army volunteer mumbled, "Uh... No, I didn't know that."

    "Secondly," says the lawyer, "did it show that my brother, a disabled Afghanistan
    Veteran, is blind, confined to a wheelchair and is unable to support his wife and
    six children?"

    The stricken volunteer began to stammer an apology, but was cut off again.

    "Thirdly," the lawyer said, "did your research also show you that my sister's husband
    died in a car accident, leaving her penniless with a mortgage and the burden of
    supporting three children, one of whom is disabled and another who has
    learning disabilities requiring an array of private tutors and specialist nurses?"

    Completely beaten, the humiliated Salvation Army volunteer said, "I'm so sorry. I had no idea."

    And then the lawyer said, "So if I don't give any fucking money to them, what makes you think I'd give any to you?"

    Very good, and likely to be true.
