THE HIT AND RUN CASE

Fiji Sun - - Sunfun -

A very suc­cess­ful lawyer parked his brand-new Lexus in front of his of­fice, ready to show it off to his col­leagues. As he got out, a truck passed too close and com­pletely tore the door off of the driver’s side. The coun­selor im­me­di­ately grabbed his cell phone, di­aled 911, and within min­utes a po­lice­man pulled up. Be­fore the of­fi­cer had a chance to ask any ques­tions, the lawyer started scream­ing hys­ter­i­cally. His Lexus, which he had just picked up the day be­fore, was now com­pletely ru­ined and would never be the same, no mat­ter what the body shop did to it. When the lawyer fi­nally wound down from his rant­ing and rav­ing, the of­fi­cer shook his head in dis­gust and dis­be­lief. “I can’t be­lieve how ma­te­ri­al­is­tic you lawyers are,” he said. “You are so fo­cused on your pos­ses­sions that you don’t no­tice any­thing else.” “How can you say such a thing?” asked the lawyer. The cop replied, “Don’t you know that your left arm is miss­ing from the el­bow down? It must have been torn off when the truck hit you.” “Ahhh!” screamed the lawyer. “Where’s my Rolex!”
