Day Brightener – How To Start Your Day With Good News/Bad News

A New York attorney, representing a wealthy art collector, called and asked to speak to his client.

“Paul, I have some good news and I have some bad news.”

The art collector replied, “You know, I’ve had an awful day, Jack, so let’s hear the good news first.”

The lawyer said, “Well, I met with your wife today, and she informed me that she has invested only $5,000 in two very nice pictures that she thinks will bring somewhere between $10 and $12 million…and I think she could be right.”

Paul replied enthusiastically, “Holy cow!!  Well done!! My wife is a brilliant businesswoman, isn’t she? You’ve just made my day.  Now, I know I can handle the bad news. What is it?”

The lawyer replied, “The pictures are of you and your secretary.”
