Therefore, an elderly woman should not be called as a witness by Ann WoodTherefore, an elderly woman should not be called as a witness:
In court in a small South American city, the prosecutor calls a witness - an old grandmother.
It starts with the question:
"Mrs. Jones, do you know me?"
"Of course I know you, Mr. Williams." I've known you since I was a kid, and I admit I'm very disappointed with you - you lie, you cheat on your wife, you manipulate people and you talk nasty things behind their backs. You are thinking of a great job because you do not have enough brains to understand that you are just an ordinary bureaucrat.
The prosecutor is shocked, does not know what to do next, reaches the other end of the room and asks:
"Mrs. Jones, do you know the lawyer?"
"Of course I know him." I know it, Mr. Bradley, from a baby called. He is lazy and has a problem with alcohol. There can be no normal relationship with anyone, let alone that he cheats on his wife with three women. By the way, one of them is your wife.
The lawyer is neither alive nor dead.
The judge asked both lawyers to approach him, and said quite quietly:
"If any of you idiots ask the witness if she knows me, I'll send you both to the electric chair!"
