A local United Way office realized that the organization had never received a donation from the town€™s most successful lawyer. The person in charge of contributions called him to persuade him to contribute.€œOur research shows that out of a yearly income of at least $500,000, you give not a penny to charity. Wouldn€™t you like to give back to the community in some way?€The lawyer mulled this over for a moment and replied, €œFirst, did your research also show that my mother is dying after a long illness, and has medical bills that are several times her annual income?€Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbled, €œUm € no.€The lawyer interrupts, €œor that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair?€The stricken United Way rep began to stammer out an apology, but was interrupted again.€œor that my sister€™s husband died in a traffic accident,€ the lawyer€™s voice rising in indignation, €œleaving her penniless with three children?!€The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten, said simply, €œI had no idea€€On a roll, the lawyer cut him off once again, €œSo if I don€™t give any money to them, why should I give any to you?€
