A man's final wish
An old penny pincher had no friends. Just before he died he asked
his doctor, lawyer, and pastor to gather around him at the
"I have always heard that you can't take it with you. But I
want to disprove that theory," he said. "I have $90,000
under my mattress, and when I die, just before they throw the
dirt on me at my burial, I want you each to toss in an envelope
with $30,000 within."
The three attended the funeral and each threw his envelope in the
grave. On the way back from the cemetery, the pastor said,
"I must confess. I needed $10,000 for my new church, so I
only threw in $20,000." The doctor then said, "I must
confess too. I needed $20,000 for a new hospital I was opening
up, so I only threw in $10,000."
The lawyer looked at them both and shook his head. He then said,
"Gentlemen, I'm surprised, shocked, and ashamed of you. I
don't see how you could dare to go against that man's final wish.
I mean, I threw in my personal check for the full amount."
