Divorced at Christmas

There once was an old man who called his son the day before Christmas Eve and said, "Son, I hate to ruin your day but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty five years of misery is enough!"

"Dad, what are you talking about?" the son screamed.

"We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the father said. "We're sick of each other and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister and tell her."

Frantically the son called his sister who absolutely exploded on the phone, "Like hell they're getting divorced! I'll take care of this!"

She immediately called her father and screamed at him, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back and we will both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, do you hear me? Don't do a thing!" She then hung up.

The old man also hung up the phone and turned to his wife and said, "Done. They're coming for Christmas, and they're even paying their own way."
