Ungrateful

Reminds me of the story of two old friends who happened upon each other at the store one day. One of the men was obviously in a foul, depressed mood, not even able to work up a weak smile to celebrate this chance encounter with a face and voice from his past. “What’s the trouble, buddy?” the other man asked. “Oh, let me tell you, my uncle died three weeks ago and left me $ 40,000.” “Really?” “Yeah, then the week after that, a cousin I hardly even knew died and left me $ 85,000. Then last week, one of my great-aunts passed away and left me a quarter of a million dollars.” “You’ve got to be kidding me?” his friend exclaimed. “Then why the long face?” “This week … nothing!”
