Three Sons

10 poundsA father told his 3 sons when he sent them to university: “I feel it’s my duty to provide you with the best possible education and you do not owe me anything for that.
However, I want you to appreciate it. As a token, please each put £1,000 into my coffin when I die.”
And so it happened. His sons became a doctor, a lawyer and a financial planner, each very successful financially.
When their father’s time had come and they saw their father in the coffin, they remembered his wish. First, it was the doctor who put 100 £10 notes onto the chest of the deceased.
Then, came the financial planner, who also put £1,000 there.
Finally, it was the heartbroken lawyer’s turn. He dipped into his pocket, took out his cheque book, wrote a check for £3,000, put it into his father’s coffin and took the £2,000 cash. He later went on to become a member of Parliament……. 👿 😯

    That’s happening right here in America too. It appears you have to be a bottom feeder to be in politics.

    Have a fabulous day Steve. 🙂

    Funny and sad and true all at once! We have some good people who run for office here, but they never get elected, only the scoundrels do.
