Funny Short Story With Twist That You’ll Never Expect

Parents Tell Their Kids They’re Getting Divorced but Then This Story Takes a Twist

This funny story is set in a popular retirement town in Phoenix Arizon.

An elderly man in Phoenix calls his son in New York and says,
“I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing, forty-five years of misery is enough.”

“Pop, what are you talking about?”
Screams the son.

“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 Chicago and tell her,”
and he hangs up.

Frantically, the son calls his sister, and upon hearing the story on the phone she explodes with anger.

“They’re not getting divorced if I have anything to do about it,”
she shouts,
“I’ll take care of this.”

She calls her parents in Phoenix 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 she hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife and says,
“Okay, they’re coming for Thanksgiving… Now what do we tell them for Christmas?”
