A lawyer's dog， running around town unleashed， heads for a butcher shop and steals a roast. The butcher goes to the lawyer's office and asks， “if a dog running unleashed steals a piece of meat from my store， do I have a right to demand payment for the meat from the dog's owner？” The lawyer answers， “Absolutely.”
“Then you owe me $8.50. Your dog was loose and stole a roast from me today.”
The lawyer， without a word， writes the butcher a check for $8.50. The butcher， having a feeling of satisfaction， leaves.
Three days later， the butcher finds a bill from the lawyer： $100 due for a consultation.
