The old, stingy lawyer was dying and was determined to prove wrong the old saying; “You can’t take it with you.”
He instructed his wife to go down to the bank and withdraw enough money to fill his huge suitcase. His plan: Put the luggage directly over his bed and when he died he grab it on his way up to heaven.
Inevitably the old ambulance chaser died.
When his wife was up cleaning in the attic one day many years on, she came across the forgotten suitcase.
She then said to herself, “That old fool. I knew he should have had me put it in the basement!”
