A dog ran into a butcher shop and grabbed a roast off the counter. Fortunately, the butcher recognized the dog as belonging to a neighbour of his. The neighbour happened to be a lawyer. Incensed at the theft, the butcher called up his neighbour and said, 'Hey, if your dog stole a roast from my butcher shop, would you be liable
for the cost of the meat?'
The lawyer replied, 'Of course, how much was the roast?' '$7.98.'
A few days later the butcher received a check in the mail for $7.98.
Attached to it was an invoice that read: Legal Consultation Service: $150.
