Penny in the fusebox
A man accidentally killed himself and his family because he was so cheap.
Now as they're being laid to rest, their friends and relatives weep.
He wouldn't have made the decision he did if he'd known what he would lose.
He decided to put a penny in his fusebox instead of a fuse.
One night the insulation burned off the wiring and it burned his house to the ground.
If he would've bought a new fuse, he and his family would still be around.

Wow! You are right, this could be so true. I wonder if this has

really ever happened. The title caught my eye ;), so I said

I must read, was totally different than what I expected, but an

awesome write indeed. Thanks for sharing.
