CURTAIN RODS----PRICELESS


She spent the first day packing 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 table by candle-light, 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 had finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half-eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar into the hollow of the curtain rods. She then cleaned up the kitchen and left. When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days. Then slowly, the house began to smell .

They tried everything; cleaning, mopping and airing the place out . Vents were checked for dead rodents and carpets were steam cleaned .

Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during which they had to move out for a few days and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting.

Nothing worked!!! People stopped coming over to visit. Repairmen refused to work in the house. The maid quit .


Finally, they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move.

A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, they could not find a buyer for their stinky house . Word got out and eventually even the local Realtors refused to return their calls Finally, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place. The ex-wife called the man and asked how things were going. He told her the saga of the rotting house. She listened politely and said that she missed her old home terribly and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for getting the house back . Knowing his ex-wife had no idea how bad the smell was, he agreed on a price that was about 1/10th of what the house had been worth, but only if she were to sign the papers that very day . She agreed and within the hour his lawyers delivered the 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 A HAPPY ENDING, DON'T YOU?

Great story. I totally love all the graphics you put in too.

And yes, you may add me to your blog list if you so desire. My blog is slow at the moment as my daughters are in spending a few weeks with my mom and dad in Tennessee. I did not realize how boring my life was without my girls here to make me laugh or do things with! Blogging about laying around on the sofa watching TV with my husband would be boring.

I have heard this before, but its still just as funny hearing it again, and even better with all of the pictures! You sure picked exactly the right pics. The part I love the best is at the very end where they said they even swiped the curtain rods to spite the ex wife! hehehe!

Bridget said...

I'm glad you've added some new pictures of the family. I've always enjoyed how cute your daughter is but I couldn't really see your son because of his ninja garb. He is so cute too! It's no wonder they are both so adorable, you are gorgeous and your hubby is quite a good looking guy too.
The teen years weren't too easy for my daughter and me but we've managed to maintain a close relationship and it gets better all of the time. She is 21 now.

Raxx, Thanks for the compliment. I turned 50 in January so I'll take all of the compliments I can get. LOL I just took some shots of my daughter tonight with her hair and makeup done so that she looks a little older. I'll post one tomorrow. TTFN, B.
