|A lawyer had a wife and 12 children and needed to move, as his rental agreement was coming to an end forthe home where he lived, but was having difficulty in finding a new home.|
When he said he had 12 children, no one would rent a home to him because they knew that the children would destroy the home. He could not say that he had no children, he could not lie, after all, lawyers cannot and do not lie.
So, he had an idea - he sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with 11 children. He took the remaining one with him to see homes with the real estate agent.
He liked one of the homes and the agent asked, "How many children do you have ?"
He answered, "12 children."
The agent asked, "And where are they now?"
The lawyer answered, with a sad look, "11 of them are in the cemetery with their mother."
And that is the way he was able to rent a home for his family without lying.
Moral: it is not necessary to lie, one only has to choose the right words. Lawyers don't lie... They are great!!!
