    > 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?
