    Friend's dad always said "If I die at home, take me to work and prop me up at my desk with a pencil in my hand... I get 5 times my salary if I die on the job!"

    I think we could have gotten away with that... Cashing a check at a teller window with a corpse? Not so much.

    Upon re-reading this... I feel bad for the 3 guys. (2 living, 1 dead)

    Well honestly, 3 old men over 65 are living together and one of them dies. They must be pretty desparate to try this. I would rather the dead man's friends get the cash instead of the horrible government.

    There is so much real crime out there I hope they don't throw the book at two old guys. It probably doesn't make much sense, but if you are in a bad situation, what else are you gonna do?

    I hope they at least allow the SS check be cashed to pay for the dude's funeral.

    It's not like this shocks me or anything, but just for the lolz, I wish I coulda been a fly on the wall while these two worked out their plan.

    I have a feeling it woulda been priceless.

    This reminds me of when my great Grandpa was in hospital, and we'd been told they didn't think he would last the next few hours.
    My great Grandma was more concerned about getting to the post office to pick up his pension. Her exact words: "They won't let me claim it if he's already dead"

    Wow, no offense, but when I read the title I assumed it was 2 men under 20, I didn't even think they were 65 and tried something so dumb. Maybe nkelsch was right and there were THAT desperate.



    Oh and extra points for the Weekend at Bernie's referrence on the first page of the thread. I smell another sequel brewing.....(no pun intended)

    I bet they tried to tell the clerk he was passed out drunk and that's why they left him outside.
