A Visit From the Kids

A man in Cleveland calls his son in Philly the day before Christmas Eve and says, "I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; thirty 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 father says. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you can call your sister in Houston and tell her."

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like hell they're getting divorced!" she shouts. "I'll take care of this!"

She calls home immediately, and screams at her father, "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? NOTHING!!" and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "It's arranged," he says, "the kids are coming home for Christmas - and they're paying their own way."
