A lawyer was setting up his business and things were not going very well. Although he had some clients from his previous firms, he wasn’t getting any new ones.
Finally, a week after opening, a man walked into the office. The lawyer quickly picked up his phone and pretended to be speaking to a client about winning an important court case and negotiating the costs.
The man who had walked into the office raised his eyebrows, and the lawyer thought he must be impressed.
“Sorry about that,” said the lawyer. “You know how it is. Work never stops. How can I help you today?”
“I’m here to help you, actually,” said the man. “I’m the one who’s supposed to be connecting your phone.”
