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 very nice bottle of wine.
When she finished, she went into
each and every room in the house 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.
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 could have 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!
