Curtain rods.

CURTAIN RODS ---


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 table,
by 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 shrimps dipped in caviar
into the hollow centre of the curtain rods.

She
then cleaned up the kitchen and left.

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 c hecked for dead rodents,
and carpets were steam cleaned.

Air fresheners
were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought
in
to
set off gas canisters, during which time
the two
had to move out for afew 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 couldn't take the
stench any longer, and decided 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 got out, and eventually even the
local realtors refused to return their
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 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 having the
house.

Knowing she could have
no idea how bad the smell really was,
he agreed on
a price that was only 1/10 th of what the house had
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 A HAPPY ENDING, DON'T
YOU?
