    Mod, sorry if i am in a wrong thread.. Please read and give comments if you like the story.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Her eyes were swollen and was with full tears. Her marriage life is no longer alive. :cry:

    Radha 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. On the third day, Radha 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.

    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 Anand, her husband returned with his new girlfriend Suja, all was bliss for the first few days. Then slowly the house began to smell. They tried everything; etc cleaning, mopping and airing the place out.

    Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters. During which the love birds had to move out for a few days and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wood carpeting. Still nothing worked !!!!!!!!!!!

    Relatives and friends stopped coming over to visit. Repairmen refused to work in the house. Even the maid quit.

    Finally, Anand and Suja 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. Words got out and eventually even the local realtors refused to return their calls.
    Anand was on great devastation as he had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new house.

    Radha, took this opportunity to call and asked how thing were going on his side. Anand sadly told her the saga of the rotting house. She listened politely and said that she missed her old home very much and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for getting the house. Knowing Radha had no idea about the bad smell of the house, Anand quickly agreed on a price that was about 1/10th of what the house had been worth..but only if Radha were to sign the papers that very day.

    Radha agreed and within the hour, his lawyers delivered the paperwork. A week later, Anand and Suja stood smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home..........
    And to spite Radha..his ex-wife...they even took the curtain rods together...

    I LOVE THE ENDING.....DON'T YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:rotfl
