How to get off a speeding ticket
The following true story from a woman in San Diego proves that jokes can never compete with real life when lawyers are involved:
I received a speeding ticket while I was employed as a legal secretary to a sole practitioner. The attorney I worked for offered to appear in court for me as a favor (he felt guilty for underpaying me over the six years I assisted him). When the judge asked what my plea would be, he said, Your honor, my client pleads guilty to the speeding violation, but I ask that you dismiss the fine because my client cannot afford to pay it; she isnt making very much money at this time.
The judge asked, What does your client do for a living?
Your honor, my boss replied, she is my secretary.
At this point the whole courtroom erupted into laughter--and the judge dismissed the fine.
I no longer work for this attorney; Im looking for a higher-paying position!
