Some people can surprisingly go out of their way to ensure that they have all the money in the world. Sometimes this may lead to hilarious consequences.
This story shows how a wife found a loophole in her husband’s strange ploy to take away all his money when his dies.
Once there was a man who worked so hard for earning money that he believed that he could not give it to anyone who didn’t work as hard as him – which meant he also did not want to leave any money for his wife who was nothing like him.
So, when he was almost sure that he would soon die, he told his wife, “Listen, when I die I want you to put all my money in the casket with me. I want to die with all that money and take it to the afterlife.”

He made his wife promise that she would grant him his last wish and bury all his hard-earned money alongside him during his funeral.
Eventually, the husband died and he was stretched out in a casket. His wife stood amid the mourners in her black attire right next to her best friend.
Just before the undertakers were about to close the casket, the wife spoke up, “Wait a minute!”
She stepped forward with a shoebox tucked under her arm. She placed it inside the casket and asked the undertakers to close the casket. They did so, locked the casket, and rolled it away.
When she returned to her spot after the ritual, her best friend told her, “I hope you weren’t crazy enough to put all that money in there with that stingy old man.”
She watched him with a smile. “Yes, I had promised. I’m a good Christian and I can’t lie. I promised him that I was to put that money in that casket with him.”
“What?” her friend was shocked. “You put every cent of his money in the casket with him?”
“Of course,” the wife replied. “I got it all together into my bank account and wrote him a check, which is inside that shoebox.”
