A man lying on his deathbed requested that his wife gather up all his money and place it in the attic. He would pick it up on his way out of this life.
Being the faithful, loving wife she had been for over 50 years, she did as she was told. Soon, the man died.
Weeks later, she remembered his request and went to the attic to see if he had followed through.
There, in the same place where she had left it, was the money. “I knew it,” she exclaimed, “I should have put it in the basement.”
