Road trips with your best friends can be really exciting! The adventure, the sight-seeing…and best of all, the snacks! Most of us don’t take really long road trips more than once or twice a year, but it’s usually during these lengthy trips that things can sometimes just go horribly wrong. These guys were on one such trip only to have run into a horrible blizzard! They were forced to ask a stranger for help, but one friend had other plans in mind…
John decided to go skiing with his buddy, Keith. So they loaded up John’s minivan and headed north.
After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. So they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could spend the night.
“I realize it’s terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but I’m recently widowed,” she explained. “I’m afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house.”
“Don’t worry,” John said. “We’ll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the weather breaks, we’ll be gone at first light.” The lady agreed, and the two men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night.
Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on their way.
They enjoyed a great weekend of skiing.
But about nine months later, John got an unexpected letter from an attorney. It took him a few minutes to figure it out, but he finally determined that it was from the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on the ski weekend.
He dropped in on his friend Keith and asked, ‘Keith, do you remember that good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our ski holiday up north about 9 months ago?
“Yes, I do.” Said Keith.
“Did you…happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and pay her a visit?”
“Well, um, yes!” Keith said, a little embarrassed about being found out, “I have to admit that I did.”
“And did you happen to give her my name instead of telling her your name?”
Keith’s face turned beet red and he said, “Yeah, look, I’m sorry, buddy. I’m afraid I did. Why do you ask?”
“She just died and left me everything.”
Keith turned out to be a pretty scummy friend! Blaming John for everything when he thought it might save him from a little bit of trouble. Like dad always said, “what goes around, comes around!” I hope John keeps everything and kicks Keith to the curb! What a jerk!
