After 48 years of marriage, an elderly Sindhi man in Bombay calls his son in
New York and says, "I hate to ruin your day son, but I have to tell you that
your mother and I are getting a divorce; 45 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 Hong Kong and tell her!"
Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like heck
they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of
this." She calls Bombay 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??" and she hangs up.
The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay", he says,
"It's all set. They're both coming for Diwali and paying
their own airfare!!"
