Old Story:

The returned immigrant said no, but the people in the house insisted he should stay with them, he had with him an old fashioned trunk which he kept in his room, and he used also say there is something in there for the rainy day, so within 2 years the man passed away, after the funeral they returned home and opened the trunk and only to find an umbrella in the trunk.
