Here is another reason we women should not be messed with....
CURTAIN RODS

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 curtain rods!!!!!!

I LOVE A HAPPY ENDING, DON'T YOU?

I have been watching this Point/Counterpoint thread develop and I have been trying to link in something that seems appropriate to the cause.

But I am idiotically, technologically awful so I am asking for help.

If you are interested, please check out "Man Cold" either through Google or You Tube. It is one of those You Tube videos. When I try to link it, one of the feeds keeps stopping. There is other stuff on the You Tube page that I don't want. But maybe that just comes with the You Tube territory. I am just trying to capture the video.

I have to laugh every time I see this thing.

So if anybody else thinks it is funny and is willing to do the link, that would be great.

Thank you.

btw I can't quite understand the last thing the paramedic says to the wife. And I also can't understand the last thing the husband says about how he wants his soup.

I apologize for being so inept, but I really think some of you out there might like to see Man Cold.

Susan & Tom,

Thanks for reprinting the shrimp story. I had seen it a while back and thought it was a scream. I've looked for it since so I could pass it on. All's well that ends well.

Thanks Peech.

For all you women who have husbands who say: "I never know what to do to make you happy" ..... I suggest that you copy this and give it to your husband. Mine now has the script and I hope he sticks to it!! ;D

You are welcome jjdees. I thought it was hysterical too.
And for all of you who commented on a man needing to use the words "yes dear" or words to that effect...my husband included that advice in his wedding reception speech as the father of the bride. Wise man.
