Mrs Grey was old and deaf, and was in court, accusing a neighbor of allowin his dogs to come into her garden,damage her vegetables and run after her cat and her chickens.
After hearing both sides, the judge thought that it would be best an cheapest for everybody if Mrs Grey and her neighbor could come to some sort of arrangement to settle the matter between themselves, so he asked the lawyer who was representing Mrs Grey to find out how much money she wanted from her neighbor in order to stop the actin against him.
Her lawyer explained to her what was happening, but Mrs Grey could not hear what he said, so he repeated loudly, ‘’The judge want to know what you will take,’’
‘Oh, thank you every much,’’Mrs Grey answered politely. ‘’Please tell him that I’ll a glass of beer.’’
