SMELLY CURTAIN RODS! YOU WILL LOVE THIS!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

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.

                               movers
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.
 

                                     table
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.

 

                                                      mop
 
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!!!

 

                                                       cleaner
 
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.

 

                                                                phone
 
Finally, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.

 

                                                                money
 
The ex-wife called the man and asked how things were going.

 

                                                      wife
 
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

 

                                                     house
 
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.

 

                                                   lawyer
 
A week later the man and his girlfriend stood smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home........

 

                                                             boxes
 
And to spite the ex-wife, they even took the curtain rods

                                                                 rods

I LOVE A HAPPY ENDING, DON'T YOU?

This is the greatest!  I have often thought of revenge, but this really takes the cake.  I wonder if I can get into the house of a certain bank CEO?  Thanks.  Too funny, really.....
