This is a cute story.

Subject: Curtain Rods

This should bring a smile to your faces……..puts a whole new slant on

the word revenge!

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 candlelight, put on some soft background

music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle

Chardonnay. When she had finished, she went into each and every room and

stuffed half-eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar, into the hollow of

all 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 1/14th 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 ……………… including the curtain rods.



Have a nice day……..
