    The United Way realized that it had never received a donation from
    the city's most successful lawyer. So a United Way volunteer paid
    the lawyer a visit in his lavish office.

    The volunteer opened the meeting by saying, "Our research shows
    that even though your annual income is over two million dollars, you
    don't give a penny to charity. Wouldn't you like to give something
    back to your community through the United Way ?"

    The lawyer thinks for a minute and says, "First, did your research
    also show you that my mother is dying after a long, painful illness
    and she has huge medical bills that are far beyond her ability to
    pay?"

    Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbles, "Uh... no, I didn't know that."

    "Secondly," says the lawyer, "my brother, a disabled veteran, is

    blind and confined to a wheelchair and is unable to support his
    wife and six children."

    The stricken United Way rep begins to stammer an apology, but is
    cut off again.

    "Thirdly, did your research also show you that my
    sister's husband died in dreadful car accident, leaving her
    penniless with a mortgage and three children, one of whom is
    disabled and another that has learning disabilities requiring a
    huge array of private tutors?"

    The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten, says, "I'm so
    sorry, I had no idea."

    And the lawyer says.....

    "So...if I didn't give any money to them, what makes you think I'd give any to you?"
