A raging fire swept across the plains one day and burned down the farmers barn.
While he was out surveying the burned out wreckage, his wife called their insurance company and asked them to send a check for $75,000, which was the amount of insurance on the barn.
“We don’t actually give you the money”, an insurance company official explained. “We replace the barn and all the equipment in it”.
“Oh!”, exclained the farmer’s wife.
“In that case”, she replied, “please cancel the policy I have on my husband”.
