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?"
