Divorcing after 50 years an elderly couple in Chicago calls his son in Texas and says, “I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; fifty years of misery is enough!”

“Dad, what are you talking about?” The son screams.

“We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the old man says. “We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in New Jersey and tell her!”

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “What the heck, they’re getting divorced,” she shouts, “I’ll take care of this.”

She calls Chicago immediately, and screams at the old man, “You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife.

“Okay”, he says, “They’re coming for family get-together and paying their own travel fare.” !!!
