Vandals had set fire to a farmer's haystack which then spread to his barn.
While he surveyed the wreckage, his wife called their insurance company
and asked them to send a check for £30,000 the amount of insurance on the barn.
“We don’t give you the money,” a company official explained.
“We replace the barn and all the equipment in it.”
“In that case,” replied the wife, “cancel the policy I have on my husband.”
