This is an article given to me by one of my dearest friend.....
On the first day,
She sadly packed her belongings into boxes, crates and suitcases.
On the second day,
She had the movers come and collect her things.
On the third day,
She sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room by a candle light, she put on some soft background music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar and a bottle of spring water.
When she'd finished she went into each and every room and deposited a few half eaten shrimp dip in caviar into the hollow centre of the curtain rods.
On the fourth day the husband came back with his new girlfriend and at first all was bliss.
Then slowly the house began to smell.
They tried everything, cleaning, mopping and airing out the place.
Vents were checked for dead rodents and carpets were steamed clean.
Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during which time the two had to move out for a few days, and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting. Nothing worked!
People stop coming over to visit.
Repairmen refused to work in the house.
The maid quit.
Finally they couldn't take the stench any longer, and decided that they had to move, but a month later-even though they'd cut their price in half- they couldn't find a buyer for such a stinky house.
Word go out and eventually even the local realtors refused to return thier calls.
Finally, unable to wait any longer for a purchaser, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.
Then the ex-wife called the man and ask him how were things going. He told her the saga of the rotting house. She listen politely and said that she missed her home terribly and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for having the house.
Knowing she could have no idea how bad the smell really was, he agreed on the price that is only 1/10th of what the house would have been worth...but only if she would sign the papers that very day.
She agreed, and within two hours, his lawyers delivered the completed paperwork.
A week later the man and his girlfriend stood smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home.....
.....and to spite the ex-wife, they even took the curtain rods!
I LOVE HAPPY ENDING, DON'T YOU?
