A man had two great seats for the World Cup final. As he sits down, another man comes along and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him. “No”, he says, “the seat is empty”.
“That’s incredible!” said the second man, “who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the World Cup final, the biggest sporting event in the year, and not use it?”
The first man says, “Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. My wife was supposed to come with me, but she passed away. This is the first World Cup Final we haven’t been together since we got married”.
The second man says, “I’m sorry to hear that. That’s terrible… I guess you couldn’t find someone else, a friend or relative or even a neighbour to take the seat?”
The man shakes his head… “No. They’re all at the funeral”.
