One of my students could not take my college seminar final exam because of a funeral.

“No problem,” I told him. “Make it up the following week.” That week came,and again he couldn’t take the test due to another funeral.

“You’ll have to take the test early next week,” I insisted. “I can’t keep postponing it.”

“I’ll take the test next week if no one dies,” he told me.

By now I was suspicious. “How can you have so many people you know pass away in three weeks?” I asked.

“I don’t know any of these people,” he said. “But I’m the only gravedigger in town.”
