Laughter Corner:- Whatsapp forward;


-----------
This actually took place in *Charlotte, North Carolina*, USA.

A lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars, then insured them against, among other things, loss due to fire.

Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars, the lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company.

In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost 'in a series of small fires.'

The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason, that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion.

The lawyer sued and WON! (Stay with me.)

Delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company that the claim was frivolous. The judge stated nevertheless, that the lawyer held a policy from the company, in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining what is considered to be unacceptable 'fire' and was obligated to pay the claim.

Rather than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid *$15,000* to the lawyer for his loss of the cigars that perished in the 'fires'.

_NOW FOR THE BEST PART_...

After the lawyer cashed the cheque, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!!!

With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of *intentionally burning his insured property* and was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine.

This true story won First Place in last year's *Criminal Lawyers Award* contest in USA.

Moral: As you Sow,
So shall you Reap.

In the climax, I was expecting lawyer to put another case stating all the fuel that was filled in the tank is burnt and hence, claim some huge xxxxx dollars for the loss

Can't quote the exact source for these two as both were WhatsApp forwarded.

Excellent take on real world problems

A borrowed piece: Original source unknown.

Quote:
When I arrived at the workshop to pick up my car, I was told the key had been locked in it. I went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver's side door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked. "Hey," I announced to the mechanic, "it's open!"

To which he replied, "I know - I already got that side."

This is hilarious! Pity the TBHP logo covers a bit of the text.

I had made a suggestion about the watermark in the suggestions thread but have had no response on that.

OT: It's better to add buffer space at the bottom before posting. If you can't do that, then report your own post requesting the mods to fix the image.

That's probably why they have roped in Boman Irani (respect him a lot as an actor); to tell us not to take the peace of mind bit too seriously .

^^^^^

A spot of grammar and spelling mix ups here. What Skoda was trying to say - 'we want a piece of your mind'
