Wife Plots The Perfect Revenge For Her Husband After He Asked Her To Bury Him With All His Money

Mar 18 | 26 sharesOlivia Morton

Not to sound unnecessarily morbid, but when I die I hope that money is the last thing on my mind. I hope that I will have lived a life so rich in experiences that the value of cold hard cash is exceedingly low in my mind. After all, we're here for a good time not a long time.

I cringe at the thought of my final days being spent calculating how much cash I have. But I am even further repulsed by the idea that in my old age I may demand that a loved one stow all my money into my coffin with me. What's the point? You can't take it with you when you die.

Even if you could, the chances are that they don't accept your currency in the afterlife and I am yet to see a currency exchange office offering a conversion rate for death dollars.

But that's just me. Evidently, not everybody thinks the same. Take for example one man who demanded that his long-suffering wife pack every penny he owned into his casket.

Meanwhile, this man opted to be buried in his beloved car...

Now it's not clear if this is a true story, but it has certainly amused the internet who couldn't help but applaud the wife's cunning plan to ensure she kept her word to her late husband, but also kept hold of his money.

"He was a real cheapskate when it came to his money," the story explains. "He loved money more than just about anything, and just before he died, he said to his wife, ‘Now listen, when I die I want you to take all my money and place it in the casket with me. Because I want to take all my money to the afterlife'."

Of course, in a situation like that, you agree to do exactly as you're asked. How could you refuse someone with such little time left on this planet?

So the wife dutifully agreed to have all of her husband's hard earned cash padded into his final resting place - but, with a twist.

When the day came, the wife didn't waver in her plan. She took a shoebox full of money to the funeral and inserted it into the coffin, just as her husband had asked.

Bemused that she would commit to such a crazy promise when she could have benefited from the money herself, the wife's friend turned to her and said: "I hope you weren’t crazy enough to put all that money in there with that stingy old man."

The now-widow proved her devotion to her husband once more, by declaring: "Yes, I promised. I’m a good Christian, I can’t lie. I promised him that I was to put that money in that casket with him."

"You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the casket with him?" the friend asked.

"I sure did," replied the wife. "I got it all together, put it into my account and I wrote him a check."

Of course, her husband would never be able to cash the check and as a result, the crafty wife managed to fulfill both her husband's and her own dreams!

Now let this story be a lesson to you: don't be stingy with your money, because eventually it will get spent, just not by you!
