The article presents a joke for financial planners. The joke is all about a planner who was reading an article that stated that with just a few minor medical breakthroughs, it would become common for people to live past the age of 100. The planner told this news to his client, who seemed unhappy about the news. Puzzled, the planner asked if the client was not excited about the prospect of living to the age 100. The client answered that living to 100 would be great, but what scares him is the thought of his 75-year-old son wanting to move back in with him.
