An elderly man in Florida calls his son who lives in New York.
The father says to the son, “I hate to tell you, but we’ve got some troubles here in the house. Your mother and I can’t stand each other anymore, and we’re getting a divorce. I’ve had it! I want to live out the rest of my years in peace. I’m telling you now, so you and your sister shouldn’t go into shock later when I move out.”
The man hangs up the phone, and the son immediately calls his sister who lives in the Hamptons and tells her the shocking news.
The sister says to him, “I’ll handle this!”
She calls Florida and says to her father, “Don’t do ANYTHING until we get there! We’ll be there Wednesday night.”
The father agrees.
He hangs up the phone and hollers out to his wife, “All is okay honey, they are coming for Thanksgiving. Now, what are we going to tell them for Christmas?”
