With tears in her eyes, this recently divorced woman spent a few days packing her belongings into boxes, going through "memory lane" at almost every step. Almost every item had something that was special some long time ago, but not any more. The day before the movers come to collect her things, she sat down for the last time at her beautiful dining room table and light a candle, put some soft background music and began to eat her last diner at her old house: she had shrimp, caviar and soda.
Once she finished half her diner, she went into each room in the house and took down the curtain rods, methodically she stuffed half eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar into the hollow rods and put them back up. She cleared the house and left for the last time.
Then her ex-husband and his new girlfriend took over the house and happily moved in, for a few weeks all went well, then a bad smell began to make the house an uncomfortable place to be in, they tried cleaning everything, airing the place out, calling a pest inspector to make sure there were no dead rodents under the house. Carpets were steam cleaned, air ducts were inspected, air fresheners were installed everywhere, but nothing worked!
The stench made it impossible to live in the house and they decided to move out and rent a place while they tried to sell the house. Almost two months later and having reduced the price almost in half, they could not find a buyer for the stinky house, as word got out about the problem, Realtors even refused to show it anymore.
Then the ex-wife called the man who had cheated her and with whom she has had a bitter divorce, she asked how things were going, he told her about the problems with the rotten house, she listened politely and even told him that she missed her old house, and that she would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for getting the house at about an 80% discount of what the house had been worth.
The ex immediately agreed but only with the condition that she sign the papers that same day. within hours, his lawyers delivered the paperwork and the deal was done. Two days later the ex-husband and his girlfriend come back to the house to take the last pieces of furniture, he was not happy that he had given so much to the ex, so he took everything he could to his new place... including the curtain rods!
Happy Endings Can Happen Almost Everywhere, Don't You Love Them?
