This is something that I feel applies today.
This story will be a favorite for everyone for Thanksgiving!
There was this man in Phoenix, Arizona…he called his son that lives in New York the day before Thanksgiving… I hate to ruin your day today, Son but, I have to tell you, SON… that your Mother and I are divorcing… forty-five years of total misery is long enough…I have had it!
POP! What do you mean…what in the world are you talking about… the boy screamed! What do you mean?
WE can’t stand the sight of each other… We are sick and tired of talking about it… so you just call your sister in Chicago and tell her about it!
Franitic the Son hangs up and calls the sister in Chicago and tells her all about it .. the phone call from their Father and she explodes about this on the phone… there’s no way that they are getting divorce, I’m going to take care of this!
She calls Phoenix, immediately and screams… at her Father, You are not getting a divorce… Don’t do a single thing till I get there… I’m calling my brother back, and will get there … we will both be there tomorrow morning, don’t’ do anything till we get there… Don’t do a ting… do you hear me!
The old man hangs up the phone and turns to his wife, and says to his wife, it is all “OKAY” they are coming for Thanksgiving… and they are paying their own way!
