It can be rather unpleasant to be with a stingy partner. People are naturally free to spend their money however they please, but when you’re in a relationship things take on a slightly different dynamic.
In that situation, you must be flexible and make accommodations for one another. This particular tale is one of them.
This story may or may not be true. Despite the fact that it is entirely fictitious, I found it to be amusing and had to respect the widow’s intelligence.
I came across the story earlier today, and when I read the hilarious punchline, I knew I had to share it with you. As the saying goes, shared joy is double happiness!
There once was a man who had dedicated his life to earning a living and accumulating wealth.
With regards to spending money, he was a complete miser. More than almost anything else, he loved his money.
One day the man became ill. He was told by the doctors that he was running out of time.
Immediately after finding out, he said to his wife, “Listen, when I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to go to heaven with all of my money. I promise, his wife responded as she now faced a very challenging life as a widow. ”.
After a short while, the husband passed away. The funeral was held at the local church.
A stretched-out body of their departed loved one was next to the woman, who was seated next to their best friend and dressed in all black. After the service, as the undertakers were about to close the casket, the wife yelled, “Wait a minute!”.
She entered the coffin with a shoe box that she had with her. The funeral directors then locked the casket and rolled it away.
Her friend questioned, “What was that shoe box?”.
He wanted to be buried with all of his money, so I put it in there, the widow retorted. ”.
“Are you crazy, you buried that greedy man with all of his money, right?
Yes, she said, “I did promise.”. As a good Christian, I’m not allowed to lie. I promised him that I would put that amount of money in the casket alongside him.
How, then, did everything fit in that shoe box when he was wealthy?
That was a problem, the wife said. “So I gathered all of it, put it in my account, and then I wrote him a check. ”.
