Taking It With You
As Mr. Smith was on his death bed, he attempted to formulate a plan that
would allow him to take at least some of his considerable wealth with him.
He called for the three men he trusted most his lawyer, his doctor, and his
clergyman. He told them, "I'm going to give you each $30,000 in cash before
I die. At my funeral, I want you to place the money in my coffin so that I can
try to take it with me."
All three agreed to do this and were given the money.
At the funeral, each approached the coffin in turn and placed an envelope
While riding in the limousine to the cemetery, the clergyman said "I have
to confess something to you fellows. Brother Smith was a good churchman all his
life, and I know he would have wanted me to do this. The church needed a new
baptistery very badly, and I took $10,000 of the money he gave me and bought
one. I only put $20,000 in the coffin."
The physician then said, "Well, since we're confiding in one another, I
might as well tell you that I didn't put the full $30,000 in the coffin either.
Smith had a disease that could have been diagnosed sooner if I had this very new
machine, but the machine cost $20,000 and I couldn't afford it then. I used
$20,000 of the money to buy the machine so that I might be able to save another
patient. I know that Smith would have wanted me to do that."
The lawyer then said, "I'm ashamed of both of you. When I put my envelope
into that coffin, it held my personal check for the full $30,000."
