“When I was young, I thought that being prudent is a good quality for a man. But as years passed, I realized that it turned into Henry’s terrible obsession with money. He only talked about profit, money, discounts, free coupons… as only there was nothing else in the whole world!” Amelia goes on.
So, when she heard her husband’s last will, the woman wasn’t surprised at all, but she really didn’t know what to do. She understood that if she fulfilled Henry’s last wish, she would be mendicant until the end of her days, so she figured out an ingenious way to avoid it…
When the time has come, she put all their savings to her account. And then she just wrote a check to her deceased husband and put it into the coffin. Thus, Amelia didn’t become poor, and at the same time, she fulfilled her husband’s last will. Isn’t that just brilliant?!
Tell us what you think about this story – has Amelia done the right thing? Was it fair to put a check instead of real money?
