Who Took the Curtain Rods!!!???

By
Real Estate Agent with Weichert Realtor's Southern Coast

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 the curtain rods!!!!!!



I LOVE A HAPPY ENDING, DON'T YOU?

That's a LOL. I just hope it doesn't give too many people too many ideas.
