Unexpected consultation lawyer fee
A Kota Kinabalu lawyer’s dog, running around Kota Kinabalu unleashed, heads to Kota Kinabalu Central Market and steals a roast. The affected seller from the Kota Kinabalu Central Market goes to the Kota Kinabalu lawyer’s office and asks, “if a dog running loose because of the owner mistakes and steals a piece of meat from my stall, do I have a right to demand payment for the meat from the dog’s owner?” The Kota Kinabalu lawyer answers, “Yes, of course”
“Then you need to pay me $8.50. Your dog was loose and stole a roast from me today at the Kota Kinabalu Central Market.”
The Kota Kinabalu lawyer, without a word, writes the Kota Kinabalu Central Market seller a check for $8.50. The seller, having a feeling great because get paid, leaves with satisfication.
Three days later, the butcher finds a bill from the Kota Kinabalu lawyer: $100 due for a consultation fee.
