View Full Version : The Obedient Wife

There was a man who worked all of his life, had saved all of his money, and
was a real miser when it came it his money.

Just before he died, he said to his wife, "When I die, I want you to take
all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to
the afterlife with me."

And so he got his wife to promise him with all of her heart that when he died
she would put all of the money in the casket with him.

Well, he died.

He was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting there in black, and
her friend was sitting next to her.

When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to
close the casket, the wife said, "Wait just a minute!" She had a box with
her. She came over with the box and put it in the casket. The undertakers
locked the casket down and they rolled it away.

So her friend said, "Girl, I know you weren't fool enough to put all that
money in there with your husband."

The loyal wife replied "Listen, I'm a Christian; I can't go back on my word.
I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him."

"You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him!!!?"

"I sure did," said the wife. "I got it altogether, put it into my account
and wrote him a cheque. If he can cash it, he can spend it."
