A father told his three sons when he sent them to the university:
“I feel it's my duty to provide you with the best possible education, and you do not owe me anything for that. However, I want you to appreciate it, so as a token, please each put $1,000 into my coffin when I die.”
And so it happened…
The sons became a doctor, a lawyer and a financial planner, each very successful financially.
When the day came and they saw their father in the coffin, they remembered his wish.
First it was the doctor who put ten $100 bills onto the chest of the deceased.
Then came the financial planner, who put $1,000 there, too.
Finally, it was the heartbroken lawyer’s turn.
He dipped into his pocket, took out his checkbook and wrote a check for $3,000.
He put it into his father's coffin, and took the $2,000 cash…
Apologies to lawyers out there. 😂😂
