An old man was on his death bed, and wanted to be buried with his money. He called his priest, his doctor and his lawyer to his bedside. Heres $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 man put an envelope in the coffin. Riding away in a limousine, 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 were 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. Im ashamed of both of you, he exclaimed. I want it known that when I put my envelope in that coffin, I enclosed a check for the full $30,000.
