A man was filling out a life insurance application, but he was struggling with one of the sections.
The insurance salesman asked him what the problem was.
The man replied that he couldn’t answer the question about his father’s cause of death.
When the salesman asked him why, the man went red with embarrassement, but after regaining his composure, explained that his father had been hanged.
The salesman thought about this for a moment and then said, “Just write that your Father was taking part in a public function when the platform gave way”.
