A man has great tickets for the World Cup Final. As he sits down,
another man comes down and asks if anyone is sitting in the empty seat
next to him.



"No," he says. "The seat is empty."


"This is incredible!" says the other man.


"Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the World Cup
Final, the biggest sporting event, and not use it?"


"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 to together since we got married."

"Oh, I'm sorry to hear that...that's terrible. But couldn't you 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."
