The FA Cup Final
It’s game of the FA Cup Final between Leeds and Derby,Stuart makes his way to his seat right at center ice. He sits down, sees that the seat next to him is empty.
He leans over and asks his neighbor Francis if someone will be sitting there. ‘No’ says Francis.‘The seat is empty.’
‘This is unbelievable ,’ said Stuart. ‘Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the FA Cup and not use it?‘
Francis says, ‘Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away.
‘This is the first FA Cup match we haven’t been to together since we got married.’
‘Oh, I’m so sorry to hear that. That’s terrible… But couldn’t you find someone else, a friend or relative, or even a neighbor to take the seat?’
Francis shakes his head. ‘No,’ he says. ‘They’re all at the funeral.’
