Lawyer with 12 young ones...... (General Discussion)

A lawyer, who had a wife and 12 children, and needed to move because his
rental, agreement was terminated by the owner who wanted to reoccupy the home.

But he was having a lot of difficulty finding a new house. When he said, he had 12
children, no one would rent a home to him because they felt that the children would
destroy the place.

He couldn't say he had no children, because he couldn't lie. Now we all know lawyers
cannot, and do not lie. So, he sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with 11 of their kids.

He took the remaining one with him to see rental homes with the real estate agent.
He loved one of the homes and the price was right, the agent asked: How many children do you have? 12
"Where are the others?" The lawyer, with his best courtroom sad look, said "They are in the cemetery!"

MORAL:

It's not necessary to lie, one only has to choose the right words.

What sort of a discussion are you wanting on this? Or is it a joke?

After I had posted it, I wanted to delete it but couldn't. I am not happy with this new computer.

This storry reminded me of one TV station that tells lies by stretching the truth.

So, was the lawyer wrong, or was the rental agent wrong to assume that they were all dead?

It was lying by omission. I wouldn't rent to him either for 12 kids need lots of space. Relater should have asked a better question. They both were in the wrong.

I agree with you.......

I was taught many years ago, "Always remember that a computer is only as good as what the operator enters." :-D

After reading this a couple of times I got it, sort of a joke I guess.
