    Default curtain rods--- PRICELESS

    On the first day, she sadly packed her belongings into boxes, crates and suitcases.



    On the second day,
    she had the movers come and collect her things.



    On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining-room table, by candle-light; she put on some soft background music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar,and a bottle of spring-water.





    When she'd finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half-eaten shrimps dipped in caviar into the hollow centre of the curtain rods.




    She then cleaned up the kitchen and left.



    On the fourth day, the husband came back with his new girlfriend, and at first all was bliss.

    Then, slowly, the house began to smell.



    They tried everything; cleaning, mopping, and airing-out the place.



    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 time
    the two had to move out for a few days, and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting. Nothing worked!



    People stopped coming over to visit.

    Repairmen refused to work in the house.

    The maid quit.



    Finally, they couldn't take the stench any longer, and decided they had to move, but a month later - even though they'd cut their price in half - they couldn't find a buyer for such a stinky house.



    Word got out, and eventually even the local realtors refused to return their calls.




    Finally, unable to wait any longer for a purchaser, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.




    Then the ex-wife called the man and asked how things were going. 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 having the house.




    Knowing she could have no idea how bad the smell really was,
    he agreed on a price that was only 1/10 th of what the house had been worth ... but only if she would sign the papers that very day.




    She agreed, and within two hours his lawyers delivered the completed paperwork.




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







    ... and to spite the ex-wife, they even took the the curtain rods!

    This was on a tv show called Urban Legends. I laughed at the end when they took the rods with them. The way it was on the show was the ex was having one last dinner party with her Gf's and they had a fish and seafood spread, came up with this idea....lol
