An elderly man, 82, just returned from the doctor’s only to
find he didn’t have long to live. So he summoned the three most important
people in his life to tell them of his fate.
"Well, today I found out I don’t have long to live. So
I have summoned you three here, because you are the most important people in my
life, and I need to ask a favor. Today, I am going to give each of you an
envelope with $50,000 dollars inside. When I die, I would ask that all three of
you throw the money into my grave."
After the man passed on, the 3 people happened to run into
each other. The doctor said, "I have to admit I kept $10,000 dollars of
his money, he owed me on lots of medical bills. But, I threw the other $40,000
in like he requested."
The priest said, "I have to admit also, I kept $25,000
dollars for the church. It’s all going to a good cause. I did, however, throw
the other $25,000 in the grave."
Well, the lawyer just couldn’t believe what he was hearing!
"I am surprised at you two taking advantage of him like that. I wrote a
check for the full amount and threw it all in!"
