The neighbour dropped a bombshell

As the man made his way to his seat at the World Cup Final, he couldn’t help but feel excited.But as he sat down by the pitch, he noticed the seat next to him was empty.

“What a waste,” he thought to himself. “Who would have a seat like this and not use it?”

Curiosity getting the best of him, he leaned over to his neighbour and asked if someone would be sitting there. “No,” the neighbour replied. “The seat is empty.”

The man couldn’t believe it. “This is incredible,” he exclaimed. “But seriously, who in their right mind would pass up the chance to watch the World Cup Final from this seat?”

That’s when the neighbour dropped a bombshell. “Actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first World Cup

Final we haven’t been to together since we got married.”

The man’s heart sank. “Oh, I’m so sorry to hear that. That’s terrible.”

But then he had an idea. “Couldn’t you find someone else to take her seat? A friend, relative, or even a neighbour?”

The neighbour shook his head. “No,” he said. “They’re all at the funeral.”
