You may have read this before, but it’s a great reminder.
> An old man in Miami calls his son in New York and says, “Listen, your mother and I are getting divorced. Forty-five 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,” he says. “I’m sick of her face, and I’m sick of talking about this, so call your sister and tell her,” and he hangs up. > Now, the son is worried. He calls his sister in Atlanta. > She says, “Like hell they’re getting divorced!” > She calls their father immediately. “You’re not getting divorced! Don’t do another thing. The two of us are flying home tomorrow to talk about this. Until then, don’t call a lawyer, don’t file a paper. DO YOU HEAR ME?” She hangs up the phone. > The clever old man turns to his wife and says, “Okay, they’re both coming for the weekend and paying their own airfares!” Moral to the story: Don’t wait for your parents to play a prank on you to see you!
