divorce at 65 mph


Recommended Posts

not sure if posted but my boss sent me it, thought it was good so ehre it is.


A married couple is driving along a highway doing a steady forty miles per hour. The wife is behind the wheel. Her husband, a divorce lawyer, suddenly looks across at her and speaks in a clear voice, "Darling," he says. "I

know we've been married for twenty years, but I want a divorce."

The wife says nothing, keeps looking at the road ahead but slowly increases her speed to 45 mph.

"I don't want you to try and talk me out of it", he says, "because I've been having an affair with your best friend, and she's a far better lover than you are."

Again the wife stays quiet, but grips the steering wheel more tightly and slowly increases the speed to 55.

The husband confidently says, "I want the house."

The wife knows he has the skill to get the upper hand in a divorce proceeding. Up to 60.

"I want the car, too," he continues.


65 mph.


"And," he says, "I want the bank accounts, all the credit cards and the boat."

The car veers towards a massive concrete bridge. This makes the husband nervous, so he asks her: "Is there anything you want?"

The wife at last replies, in a quiet and controlled voice. "No, I've got everything I need." she says.

"Oh, really?" he says with derision. "So what have you got?" Just before they slam into the wall at 65 mph, the wife turns to him and smiles and says






"The airbag."
