The Real Estate Tycoon

Posted by 15789465 on

I thought you would enjoy this story. Doug Smith is on his deathbed and knows the end is near.  His nurse, his wife, his daughter and 2 sons, are with him.   He  asks for 2 witnesses to be present and a camcorder be in place to record his last wishes, and when all is ready he begins to speak:
  • My son, "Bernie, I want you to take the Mayfair houses."
  • My daughter "Sybil, you take the apartments over in the east end."
  • My son, "Jamie, I want you to take the offices over in the City Centre."
  • "Sarah, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings on the banks of the river."
The nurse and witnesses are blown away as they did not realize his extensive holdings, and as Doug slips away, the nurse says, "Mrs. Smith, your husband must have been such a hard-working man to have accumulated all this property".   Sarah replies, "Property ? .... the man had a paper route!
