Miser’s last wish

There was a man who worked hard all his life and he was so tight with his money that he became a real miser, but accumulated lots of money.
Shortly before his death, he said to his wife:

”When I die, I want you to put all my money with me in the coffin. I want to take my money with me to another world.”
He forced his wife so that she promised to fulfill his request after his death.
Well, he died…
When he was lying in a coffin, his wife dressed in black sat by him, and next to her sat her friend. 
After finishing the ceremony, just before the coffin has been closed his wife told her friend to wait a minute. She approached the coffin and put in it a small metal casket, which she brought with her.
Then her friend said, “Girl, I know that you are not that stupid, it is really silly to put all this money together with your husband in the coffin. ”
But a loyal wife replied: “Listen, I am a Christian, I can’t go back on my word. I promised my husband that I put money into the coffin. ”
Her friend asked, surprised: “Do you want to tell me that you actually put all the money in the coffin? ”
“Of course I did,” said the wife;
“I gathered all the money, put it into my account, and wrote him a check. If he executes it, then
he’ll be able to spend all his money.”

This story belongs to all ingenious women, we know, and to
all men who think they are smarter than women ;-)))

What do you think?
