Doctors and Lawyers

Two attorneys boarded a flight out of Seattle. One sat in the window seat, the
other sat in the middle seat. Just before take-off, a physician got on and took
the aisle seat next to the two attorneys. The physician kicked off his shoes,
wiggled his toes and was settling in when the attorney in the window seat said,
“I think I’ll get up and get a coke.” “No problem,” said the physician, “I’ll
get it for you.” While he was gone, one of the attorneys picked up the
physician’s shoe and spat in it. When he returned with the coke, the other
attorney said, “That looks good, I think I’ll have one too.” Again, the
physician obligingly went to fetch it and while he was gone, the other attorney
picked up the other shoe and spat in it. The Physician returned and they all sat
back and enjoyed the flight. As the plane was landing, the Physician slipped his
feet into his shoes and knew immediately what had happened. “How long must this
go on?” he asked. “This fighting between our professions? This hatred? This
animosity? This spitting in shoes and pissing in cokes?”
