Never ask a Georgia grandma a question if you aren't prepared for the answer


Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Lawyers should never ask a Georgia grandma a question if they aren't prepared for the answer.

In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know me?' She responded, 'Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you'll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.'

The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?'

She again replied, 'Why yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.'

The defense attorney nearly died.

The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said,

'If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I'll send you both to the electric chair.

    Thanks for the chuckle to begin my day. I'm from the South - grew up all over, but spent the last and a good portion of those years in Georgia - namely Atlanta area. I'm often told I talk too much, but from where I sit, I don't see me talking any more or any less than most who are talkers. But although I try to be polite and considerate, I do tend not to embellish stories, but to tell things the way they are and where you can't mistake what I'm saying, so yes sometimes I could say things in fewer words. So when I saw the title to this blog I just had to see what it was all about.
