Daily Joke: An Elderly Farmer Sued a Railroad Company
Here's a hilarious read about an elderly farmer who served a railroad firm a lawsuit over his missing cow.
After searching tirelessly for his prized cow, the farmer realized that the animal got missing while grazing on the field along the railroad.
With sheer frustration, he decided to sue the railroad company, blaming them for the disappearance of his livestock.
The firm hurriedly hired one of the best lawyers from an urban area. One glance at the case and the attorney resolved to talk the old farmer into considering an out of court settlement and was convinced that the strategy would work.
With his excellent skills, he successfully changed the mind of the plaintiff, who not only agreed to settle out of court but signed some documents that implied that he was to take half of the money he asked.
Feeling rather accomplished outside the courtroom, the city attorney approached the farmer and confessed his actions. He said:
"You know, I hate to tell you this, but I put one over on you in there. I couldn't have won the case."
The lawyer continued by explaining how he could have lost the case. First, there was no witness from his end, and the engineer and fireman employed by the company were missing in action on the morning of the incident.
Surprisingly the elderly farmer responded that he was not sure if he would emerge victorious after suing the company. In an attempt to explain himself, the farmer said:
"Well, I'll tell you, I was a little worried about winning the case myself because that [expletive] cow came home this morning."
While the city lawyer thought he outwitted the elderly farmer, it appeared that the farmer got a good deal from getting convinced!
