A doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party. Their conversation was constantly interrupted by people describing their ailments and asking the doctor for free medical advice. After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asked the lawyer, â€œWhat do you do to stop people from asking you for legal advice when youâ€™re out of the office?â€
â€œI give it to them,â€ replied the lawyer, â€œand then I send them a bill.â€
The doctor was shocked, but agreed to give it a try.
The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepared the bills. When he went to place them in his mailbox, he found a bill from the lawyer.
