Having a stingy partner can be very irritating. People are naturally free to spend their money however they see fit, but being in a partnership changes a few things.
You must make accommodations for one another in that circumstance. Such a tale as this one!
Whether or not this tale is true, I don’t know. Although it is entirely fictitious, I found it hilarious, and I have to respect the widow’s intelligence.
This tale caught my attention earlier today, and I felt compelled to share it with you because of the narrative’s great punchline. As the expression goes, “Joy shared is joy doubled!”
A man who had worked hard his entire life and saved all his money existed.
When it came to spending money, he was a real cheapskate. More than anything, he was obsessed with money.
The man became ill one day. The doctors informed him that he didn’t have long to live.
After finding out, he first told his wife, “Now listen, when I die, I want you to take all my money and place it in the casket with me. Because I want to take all my money to the afterlife.”
“I promise,” said his wife, who now faces a very poor life as a widow.
“Are you crazy?!”
The husband went away a short while later. At their neighborhood church, the funeral was held.
The wife was seated in black next to their best friend, while the deceased was laid out in the coffin. Just as the funeral directors were about to close the casket after the ceremony ended, the wife interrupted them, saying, “Wait a minute!”
She came over with a shoe box and placed it into the coffin. She had a shoe box with her. The coffin was locked, after which the funeral directors rolled it away.
Her friend said, “What was that shoe box?”
The widow replied, “He wanted to be buried with all his money, so I put it there.”
“Are you crazy?! You buried that cheapskate with all of his fortunes?”
She said, “Yes, I promised. I’m a good Christian; I can’t lie. I promised him that I would put that money in that casket with him.”
“But he was rich; how did it all fit inside that shoe box?”
“Well, that was a problem,” said the wife. “So I got it all together, put it into my account, and wrote him a check….”
