Wanted to test his friends, aranged his own funeral

Almost everyone has sometime wanted to test their friends, to se who is standing by your side in the worst case scenario.

45 year old Amir Vehabovic from Bosnia come up whit the perfect way, he aranged his own funeral, just to se how many and who that would appear.

He had planed the event very closley. He spread out the rumor about his death, put in a obituary in the local paper and posted invitations to 45 of his friends. When the day of his funeral approaced he hide behind a bush to se the friends arrive.

Of the 45 that where invited, there where only one that arrived….. his old mother.

Vehabovic has been quoting saying

– I am very angry, it costed me alot of money to buy false pappers on my passing, and bribing the undertakers to deliver an empty casket.

Now the 44 funeralvisitors that didn´t come, have a angry letter from a dissapointed Vehabovic in their mailbox soon.

– I had belived that more of you would have turned up, this only shows you can trust no one

is part of the letter.
