This is a loves story gone bad. The husband, Jake, after 37 years of marriage, decided to leave his wife, Edith, for his secretary.
Jake is a very rich person so of course, his new girlfriend wanted to life in the home he previously shared with his wife.
This home was worth more than a million dollars. In the divorce settlement, Jake’s lawyers fought a good fight and won him the house, so, his new lover moved in with him.
His now ex-wife, Edith, had only three days to move out of the house. On the first day, she packed all of her things. On the second day, the movers picked up her things from the house.
And on the third, last day, she decided to have a supper for one last time in the dining room before she left for good. Her meal was consisted of one pound of shrimps, caviar jar and a bottle of Chardonnay.
But, when Edith was done eating, she took her half eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar and put them into all the hollows of the curtain rods in the house. When she was done, she packed up her purse and left the house.
A few days later Jake moved in with his new lover and everything was going great for them. But, after the first couple of days, a strange and awful smell started to spread in the house.
The smell was unbearable, so they cleaned the entire house, top to bottom, and aired it, but it was not enough. They washed all the carpets to make sure there weren’t any dead rodents and placed air fresheners all over the house.
They even called exterminators to set off gas canisters. Jake and his girlfriend had to move out of the house for the next couple of days.
They even replaced all the expensive carpets, but the smell just would not go away. No one wanted to go near that house anymore. Their maid left them, their friends stopped showing up, and even the repairman could not work there anymore.
Finally, Jake and his lover had no other choice but to sell the house. But the smell was so awful that no one wanted to buy it, even when they cut the price in half.
The story of the stinky house soon spread around the city and no realtor wanted to cooperate with them. They had to take a big loan from the bank to afford a new home for them.
So, it was the time for Edith to strike. She called upon her husband to ask how he was doing. He told her about the problems he had with his house and that he moved out of it.
To that she replied that she wanted the house so bad that she was ready to lower the divorce settlement if he was willing to give her the house back.
Jake, being the naive person, agreed to this, thinking that finally luck started to follow him, so he made a deal with his wife and sold her back the house for 1/10 of it’s actual worth.
Jake only had one requirement – that the papers would be signed the same day. Of course, this was not an issue for Edith and the job was done within one hour.
At the end, a week later, Edith got her house back, and Jake and his new lover pleasantly watched the movers take their things out of the house. They took the curtain rods too.
