Daughter is shocked by dad’s unexpected text message – the ingenious reason why is priceless

Some people always have to get their way. They see everything as a competition, but not all competitions are about being the fastest or strongest – you’ve got to be smart as well.

On the day before Christmas Eve, a man in Minneapolis sends a text to his daughter who lives in Chicago since a few years back. He writes: “My dear daughter, I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; 45 years of misery is enough.”

“Dad, what are you talking about?!?” his daughter instantly replies.

“We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the father writes, “We’re sick of each other and I’m sick of writing about this, so you call your brother in Milwaukee and tell him.”

Can’t believe her ears

Frantically, the daughter calls her brother in Milwaukee. He gets absolutely furious when he hears the bad news, and says to her, “Like hell they’re getting divorced! I’ll take care of this!”

He hangs up and immediately calls his parents in Minneapolis, and screams at his father, “You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my sister back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. “There we go! They’re coming for Christmas – and they’re paying their own way.”

SHARE if you think the father’s trick was clever!
