A family waits for a guest and when he arrives he shows them a monkeys paw.He tells them that it has a curse and grants three wishes but at a price.
The soilder leaves and the mans son/grandson makes fun of the tale and presures the man to make a wish. The problem is he's happy with his life but makes a wish for 200 dollars.
Nothing happens that night so they head to bed. The next morning the son heads to work and all is usual. Then later on in the day a man comes up to the families house. He informed them their son had a accident with the machine and for his work they recieved..........200 dollars
When the mother heard the news of him dying she was surprised. She told her husband to wish him bac. The husband protested when he heard. He thought she was going crazy.
