Greedy Husband

BY: Amanda

dailychuckleThere once was a man who had worked all of his life and had saved all his money and was a real miser. He loved money more than just about anything.

One day, he said to his wife, "When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me, because I want to take my money into the afterlife."

He forced her to promise with all her heart that she'd obey his wish and put all their money in the casket with him.

Well, soon after he died.

His wife sat in the church during the funeral next to her best friend. When the ceremony was finished, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the widow said, "Wait just a minute!" and she placed a small box she had with her in her husband's lifeless hands.

The undertakers then locked the casket and rolled it away.

The woman's friend said, "I know you weren't fool enough to put all your money in there with your husband!"

The widow replied, "Listen, I'm a Christian. I can't go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put our money in that casket with him and that's what I did."

"You mean to tell me you put all of your money in that casket?!!"

"I sure did," said the widow.

"How'd you fit it all in that little box?" asked her friend.

"I wrote him a check."
