This guy gathers his three best friends, a shop owner, a priest, and a lawyer to the local bar to discuss some issues.
The guy says: "I am going to give each of you $25,000 so that you can lay it on my coffin when I die. Now I trust you guys to give me the amount in full since you are my best friends."
His three best friends nod and walks away with the money.
The guy finally dies, and his three best friends goes to his funeral, each with an envelope, each setting his envelope into the guy's casket.
After the funeral, they gather at the bar for a beer.
The shop owner, began to cry "I am so wrong, there wasn't 25,000 dollars in my envelope. There was only 10,000 dollars. I pocketed the rest to myself. I feel really bad right now."
Seeing the man's honesty, the priest also decided to confess, "I, too, fell into temptation, for that envelope only held 15,000 dollars. So much money, I mean, he can't use it up there, can he?"
The Lawyer, drinking beer and proudly said, "I paid him back in full, 25,000 dollars worth of it!"
The Shop Owner and the Priest both dip their heads down in shame.
The Lawyer continued: "I wrote him a 25,000 dollar check."
