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?"
