There was a job opening in the country’s most prestigious law firm and it finally comes down to Michael and Peter. Both graduated top of the class at law school, both come from good families and both are equally attractive and well-spoken.
It’s up to the senior partner to choose one, so he takes each aside and asks, “Why did you become a lawyer?” In seconds, he chooses Peter. Baffled, Michael takes Peter aside.
“I don’t understand why I was rejected, when Mr Harrisson asked me why I became a lawyer, I said that I had the greatest respect for the law, that I’d lay down my life to uphold it and that all I wanted was to do right by my clients. What in the world did you tell him?”
“I said I became a lawyer because of my hands,” Michael replies.
“Your hands? What do you mean?” “Well, I took a look one day and there wasn’t any money in either of them!”
