So I came across a story the other day and I’m really hoping it’s true because this widow is a straight savage. In relationships, money can be an extremely stressful and difficult thing to share. It doesn’t mean this is always the case. I’m not the most frugal person in the world, but my partner happens to be on the cheaper side and we seem to make it work. Now, with that being said, if you are married to someone for years, sit by them on their deathbed, and are there right up until the end – you should know, that is now YOUR fortune. Whether it’s real or not, we can all learn a thing or two from this widowed wife. Also sorry not sorry – your husband sounds like a huge d*ck. Either way here’s the funny little story your friends might get a kick out of.
There was a man who had worked all of his life and has saved all of his money. He was a real cheapskate when it came to his money. He loved money more than just about anything. One day, the man fell ill. He was told by the doctors that he didn’t have long to live. After finding out, the first thing he told his wife was:
“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 would now face a very poor life as a widow.
A short time later, the husband passed away. The funeral took place at their local church.
He was stretched out in the casket, the wife was sitting there in black next to their best friend. When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said:
“Wait a minute!”
She had a shoe box with her, she came over with the box and placed it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket and rolled it away.
Her friend said:
“What was that shoe box?”
