Home for Thanksgiving
An Elderly man living in Denver calls his son a couple of days before Thanksgiving and says, “Son, I have called to tell you that your mother and I are getting a divorce. After 35 years we have had enough!”
The son was shocked and replied, “Dad why are you doing this?”
The father replied, “I can’t stand your mother anymore, she is always getting on my nerves, and I never want to see her again. Now, call your sister and let her know.” Then he hung up.
The son calls his sister and tells her about the upcoming divorce. The sister replied, “There is no way we can let this happen after all these years, we have to do something.”
The son calls his father back and says, “I talked to my sister and we will be there tomorrow! Don’t do anything until we get there. Don’t sign any papers, don’t get a lawyer, don’t do anything!” Then the son hangs up the phone.
The father looks to his wife and says, “Well, it looks like the kids are going to be coming for Thanksgiving and they will be paying for their own flights!”
