Joke about a doctor - level 3, A11

A doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party.

When they were talking, they were interrupted by people who described their health problems and asked the doctor for medical advice.

After an hour of this, the doctor asked the lawyer, "What do you do to stop people asking you for advice when you are not at work?"

The lawyer replied, "I give them the advice, and then the next day I send them a bill for the advice. They pay the bill, and never ask me for advice again when I am not at work."

The doctor was surprised but decided to try it.

The next day while the doctor was preparing for his work, the postman pushed a letter into his letterbox. The doctor opened the letter. The letter was from the lawyer. It was a bill for the advice.
