    A very successful lawyer parked his brand-new Lexus in front of his office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he got out, a truck passed too close and completely tore off the door on the driver's side. The lawyer immediately grabbed his cell phone, dialed 911, and within minutes a policeman pulled up.
    Before the officer had a chance to ask any questions, the lawyer started screaming hysterically. His Lexus,

    which he had just picked up the day before, was now completely ruined and would never be the same, no matter what the body shop did to it.

    When the lawyer finally wound down from his ranting and raving, the officer shook his head in disgust and disbelief. "I can't believe how materialistic you lawyers are," he said. "You are so focused on your

    possessions that you don't notice anything else." "How can you say such a thing?" asked the lawyer.

    The cop replied, "Don't you know that your left arm is missing from the elbow down? It must have been torn off when the truck hit you."

    "My God!" screamed the lawyer. "Where's my Rolex?"

    Excellent Meena

    You have whipped all the materialists in one master-stroke. When the lawyer laments about his Rolex -at that precise moment - even a die-hard optimist like me will find his hopes on humanity shaken at the very roots. At one level the post will appear only humorous. But at another there could not be a sadder commentary on human nature. The very fact that you appreciate a post like that and want to share that with us all, shows you as a very balanced and life-loving person. May you be blessed.
