Relationships are tough – marriage can be even tougher. In my case, I don’t make a purchase over $50 without notifying my husband about it. Likewise, he’ll call me to let me know. This prevents overdraft fees and confusion when we work on the budget later that month. While our budget might be missing a few zeros compared to this story, the same concept seems to hold true! After reading this story, I shudder to think of how their conversation over dinner will be like!
Several men were in the locker room of the gym when a cell phone on a bench rang and a man put it on speaker and begins to talk. Everyone else in the room stopped to listen.
WOMAN: “Hi Honey, it’s me. Are you at the club?”
WOMAN: “I’m at the shops now and found this beautiful leather coat. It’s only $2,000; is it OK if I buy it?”
MAN: “Sure, go ahead if you like it that much.”
WOMAN: “I also stopped by the Lexus dealership and saw the new models. I saw one I really liked.”
MAN: “How much?”
MAN: “OK, but for that price I want it with all the options.”
WOMAN: “Great! Oh, and one more thing. I was just talking to Janie and found out that the house I wanted last year is back on the market. They’re asking $980,000 for it.”
MAN: “Well, then go ahead and make an offer of $900,000. They’ll probably take it. If not, we can go the extra eighty-thousand if it’s what you really want.”
WOMAN: “OK. I’ll see you later! I love you so much!”
MAN: “Bye! I love you, too.” The man hung up. The other men in the locker room were staring at him in astonishment, mouths wide open.
He turned and asked, “Anyone know whose phone this is?”
Yep. I definitely do not want to be in her shoes when they find out what happened! Up until they realize what happened, I bet she was having the best day of her life! Her dream home, a gorgeous new car, and a nice leather jacket to tie it all together – all for under one million dollars?! What a great bargain!
This story is just too funny. I don’t think I would be able to go through with a prank like this! That’s just too much pressure.
