Saturday’s smiles

An old man was on his death bed wanted to be buried with his money.

He called his priest, doctor and lawyer to his bedside. “Here’s $30,000 cash to be held by each of you. I trust you to put this in my coffin when I die so I can take all my money with me.”

At the funeral, each of the three put an envelope in the coffin.

As they drove away together, the priest suddenly broke into tears and confessed, “I only put $20,000 into the envelope because I needed $10,000 to repair the roof of the church.”

“Well, since we’re confiding in each other,” said the doctor, “I only put $10,000 in the envelope because we needed a new X-ray machine for the pediatrics ward at the hospital which cost $20,000.”

The lawyer was aghast. “I’m ashamed of both of you,” she exclaimed. “I want it known that when I put my envelope in that coffin, I enclosed a check for the full $30,000.”

    The undertaker, sucpicions, aroused, removed the three envelopes,cashed the $30k with the estate’s bank sent in his disbursment statement along with an invoice for $30k plus GST and handed the cash to his service club treasurer.

    The moral of the story; The kitchen hand nearest the oven when the cake goes in is best placed to know what’s is cookin, everyone else only thinks they know.
