A very rich man didn’t enjoy a great life in terms of spending money. He didn’t spend any money on himself, his wife, clothes, vacations, restaurants or even donate to charity. He only liked to put money in the bank in a joint account with his wife.
His wife was always complaining but her rich husband’s answer was always the same: “There will be enough time to waste the money, now that I am young, I want to collect money. Who will take care of us in our old days?”
Years passed and life was always very hard for the wife but she loved him enough to stay patient and just live an average life, even though they were very wealthy.
They got older and the rich man became sick. Doctors told him that he didn’t have much time and that he should enjoy the remaining short period of his life.
His wife complained again and said: “Now it’s time to go around the world with this money and enjoy our last months of being together by making great memories that will last.”
But he couldn’t spend his money.
She asked: “What are you going to do with all of these fortunes if you are not going to spend a penny of it?”
He replied: “I was going to write my will after all the properties get transformed into cash. You have been a great wife for all these years so I am leaving you this house and a quarter of all my cash.”
“What are you going to do with the remaining three-quarters of the money?” She asked. He replied: “I would like you to burry them with me please.”
The rich man died and at his funeral, his wife wrote a cheque for the amount of the three-quarters of the cash and left it in her husband’s coffin.”
