Probably all of you have already heard some interesting story when his husband leaves his wife for the young secretary. Well, in this article we are going to write about Jake, who after 37 years of marriage left dumped his wife for his young secretary. The most interesting part of the story is that his new girlfriend demanded that they live in Jake and Edith’s multi – million dollars home. Jake had better and more capable lawyers, he prevailed. So, Edith, his ex – wife, had to leave the house in just 3 days. She spent the 1st day packing her belongings into boxes and crates. On the 2nd day, she had two movers come and collect her things. And the last, 3rd 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 of Chardonnay. After she had finished, she went into each and every room and stuffed half – eared shrimp shells dipped in caviar into the hollow of all the curtain rods. She then cleaned up the kitchen and left. When Jake returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days.
Then slowly, several days later the house began to smell. They tried everything from cleaning, mopping and airing the place out. All vents were checked for dead rodents and carpets were cleaned. Also, they put air fresheners everywhere in the house. In addition, 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 replaced the expensive wool carpeting. Nothing worked. After a while, people stopped coming over to visit. Repairmen refused to work in the house. The maid quit. They had no other solution and because they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move. After a month, 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 Realtor refused to return their calls.
Finally they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place. Edith was curious and called Jake to ask him 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. Jake was convinced that his ex – wife has no idea how bad the smell was, and agreed on a price that was about 1/10th of what the house had been worth, but only if she were the sign the papers that very day. She agreed and within the hour, his lawyers delivered the paperwork. Just one week later, Jake and his girlfriend stood smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home. Including the curtain rods.
