Although the holidays are a time to come together and appreciate the people in our lives, some families have to deal with some fairly deep problems each year. This family was no exception. Dad had to admit something terrible to his son, and was too upset to call his daughter at all.
A man in Phoenix called his son in New York the day before Thanksgiving and said,”I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.”
“Pop, what are you talking about?” his son demands.
“We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” he says. “We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her.”
Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “Like hell they’re getting divorced,” she shouts, “I’ll take care of this!”
She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at her father, “You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.
The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. “Okay,” he says, “they’re coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way.”
Ha! What would you do if your parents pulled something like this? Or…did it give you a brilliant idea?!
