Check For $ 100,000

got together with his closest friends one day, who
happened to be a Priest, a Doctor, and a Lawyer
The Rich Man was very old, and getting older, and
was thinking about his approaching death. He told
his three friends this, and asked them to do a

"Here are three envelopes, each contain $100,000,
one for each of you. I don't wish to go to the
afterlife without my money. Please, when I am
buried, would each of you throw your envelopes
into the grave on top of my coffin?"
The three friends agreed, and took the envelopes.

funeral, the Doctor, the Priest and the Lawyer
threw their envelopes on his coffin.
As they were leaving the funeral, the Priest said
to the others, "I have a confession to make. The
church needed a new altar badly, so I . . . I took
$5000 to buy it," and looked at his feet.
The Doctor said, "Well, since you've admitted it,
I too must confess that I took money. The
children's hospital where I work needed a new,
expensive X-ray machine, so I took $30,000 to
The Doctor and the Priest both turned to the
lawyer, expecting a similar confession. Instead,
he said "Oh, no, I deposited the money in my
account and dropped a check for all $100,000 in
