Sometimes you just have had enough. So it's time, even after all these years. Or maybe not...
An old man in Miami calls up his son in New
York and says, "Listen, your mother and I are getting divorced.
Forty-five years of misery is enough."
"Dad, what are you talking about?" the son screams.
“We can't stand the sight of each other any longer,” he says. "I'm sick
of her face, and I'm sick of talking about this, so call your sister in
Chicago and tell her," and he hangs up.
Now, the son is worried. So he calls up his sister. She says, "Like hell
they’re getting divorced!" and calls her father immediately. "You’re
not getting divorced! Don't do another thing, the two of us are flying
home tomorrow to talk about this. Until then, don't call a lawyer, don't
file a paper, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and she hangs up.
The old man turns to his wife and says "Okay, they’re coming for Christmas and paying their own airfares."
