Aesop's Fable The Miser

So I'm trying something new for a while - on a suggestion or dare however you want to look at it.
 I'm calling it - Aesop's Fables Retold


The Miser (the real story):

A Miser had buried his gold in a secret place in his garden. Every day he went to the spot, dug up the treasure and counted it piece by piece to make sure it was all there. He made so many trips that a Thief, who had been observing him, guessed what it was the Miser had hidden, and one night quietly dug up the treasure and made off with it.
When the Miser discovered his loss, he was overcome with grief and despair. He groaned and cried and tore his hair.
A passerby heard his cries and asked what had happened.
“My gold! O my gold!” cried the Miser, wildly, “someone has robbed me!”
“Your gold! There in that hole? Why did you put it there? Why did you not keep it in the house where you could easily get it when you had to buy things?”
“Buy!” screamed the Miser angrily. “Why, I never touched the gold. I couldn’t think of spending any of it.”
The stranger picked up a large stone and threw it into the hole.
“If that is the case,” he said, “cover up that stone. It is worth just as much to you as the treasure you lost!
The Vicki Version:
Dear Workers –

I am truly grateful to you as employees. I have made a vast fortune because of you. I live in a mansion; I have beautiful clothing, and eat the finest imported foods.

I do not believe in investing my money, only in making it and saving it away. Except for what I lavishly spend upon myself and family.

Therefore, I decree tomorrow a holiday for you, since it is Sunday anyway, I would not expect you to work since the factory is closed. I hope you find this given in a gesture of good fortune.

Sincerely,
The Miser.

After his employees received the letter, they promptly dug up his money and spent it on themselves.
