SoCS — How Do You Do?

How do you do?” The man said to me as he tipped is hat.

“Do I know you?” I asked. “How do I know you?”

How do you know me?” he responded. “Let me tell you how you know me. You know me from those bus stop bench ads. I’m a lawyer and my picture is on nearly every bus stop bench in the city. You need a lawyer, don’t you!”

I was shocked. “How did you know I need a lawyer?” I asked.

How did I know!” he said. “I know because at some point in time, everyone needs a lawyer, and I happen to be a lawyer with a lot of know-how.”

“So you’re saying that you know how to be a lawyer?” I asked. “Doesn’t every lawyer know how to be a lawyer?”

“I would say that many lawyers know how to be a lawyer, although some may not know how,” he said. “But that’s not what I meant. What I meant is that I’m a lawyer who has the know-how to ferret out those who are in immediate need of a lawyer, just like you do now.”

“That’s amazing,” I said. “How do you do that?”

“The same way I know how to be good lawyer for you,” he said.

“Well how about that?” I said. “But how much do you charge?”

How much can you afford?” he asked.

“If you’re really a good lawyer, I can afford however much you charge.”

“Great,” he said. “How about we get started right now.”

“And how!” I said.
