A man in Brisbane calls his son in Sydney the day before Christmas Eve with some bad news.

“I hate to ruin your day, but your mother and I are getting a divorce,” he says. “I’ve endured enough misery over the past 45 years.”

Upset, the son screams and asks what went wrong.

“We can’t stand the sight of each other anymore,” the father says. “We’re sick of each other and I’m sick of talking about this. Call your sister in Adelaide and tell her.

Sure enough, the son rings his sister in Adelaide and she doesn’t take the news well.

“Like hell they’re getting divorced,” she screams. “I’ll take care of this.”

She calls her dad in Brisbane.

“You are not getting divorced,” she says. “Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back and we’ll be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do anything!”

The father hangs up the phone and smiles at his wife with glee.

“Sorted! They’ll be home for Christmas and they’re paying their own way.”
