37 years of marriage weren’t important for Jake when he decided to leave his wife for his young secretary. His new love partner wanted to live in his and Edith’s home which is more than one million dollars worth. His lawyers won in the lawsuit and Jake was free to live in the house with his lover.
Edith had three days to leave the house. On the first day she packed her stuffs into box crates and suitcases. The second day the movers came to get her things. On the third day, she decided to sit down in the dinning-room for the last time. She had a meal of a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar and a bottle of Chardonnay.
When she was done with her lunch, she went into each and every room and placed half-eaten shrimp shells soaked in caviar into the hollow of all of the curtain rods. Then she went back in the kitchen, cleaned it and left the house. Then her husband and his new lover moved in and everything was great in the first several days.
Then, a strange and disgusting smell began to spread around the house. It was unbearably, so they tried with cleaning the house and airing it. They ensured that there aren’t any died rodents and washed the carpets. They had air fresheners everywhere.
They even brought exterminators in order to set off gas canisters. They had to move out from the house for several days. They also replaced the wool carpeting, which was pretty expensive. But the smell was still there and it was getting worse.
Their friends stopped coming by, and even their repairman couldn’t work anymore in the house. The maid also was gone.
They were forced to move out from the house because the smell was too strong.
The house was on sale, but there weren’t any buyers, even when the price was cut on half.
Their story spread around the city quick and even their local realtors avoided to return their calls. So, they were forced to take a huge loan from the bank to buy a new house.
Edith called her ex-man to ask him how the things are working out for him. He told her about his problems with the house. She listened like she didn’t know anything and told him that she misses the house so bad that she would decrease her divorce settlement in exchange for taking the house back.
He was thinking that the fortune has smiled upon him and agreed to give her the house on a price around 1/10 of the overall worth. He had only one condition, she needed to sign the papers that day. She agreed and the job was done within one hour.
One week later the two lovers were satisfied while watching the movers packing their things and taking them into their new house.
