We all keep secrets from each other. It’s only natural – telling the truth is often inconvenient, and admitting something bad you’ve done can change people’s opinions of you. But telling a lie (or omitting the truth) is also risky. Not only because it will make you less virtuous, but also because small lies often lead to bigger lies – and suddenly you’re trapped in a web where you always have to remember what you’ve said to who.
The couple in this funny story kept a big secret from each other for 30 years, and when it was finally revealed, neither of them could believe what they were hearing.
The last line absolutely made my day! I sure didn’t see that one coming. I hope you’ll laugh as hard as I did!
A young couple in love had just gotten married. On their wedding night, the young bride told her eager husband that she wanted $20 for their first love-making encounter.
The husband had already stripped down to his underwear, and was highly aroused. He readily agreed, and they had an incredible night together.
This scenario repeated itself each time they made love for the next 30 years. The man thought this was a cute way for her to buy new clothes and such.
When the wife arrived home around noon one day, she found her husband in a very drunken state. Over the next few minutes, she heard of the ravages of financial ruin caused by corporate downsizing and its effects on a 50 year old executive, and that he was almost bankrupt.
Wife reveals her secret
Calmly, she handed him a bank book showing deposits and interest for 30 years totaling nearly $1 million dollars.
Pointing across the parking lot, she gestured toward the local bank while handing him stock certificates worth nearly $2 million dollars and informing him that he was the largest stockholder in the bank.
She told him that for 30 years, she had charged him each time they had sex, and this was the result of her investments.
The man looked absolutely distraught.
The wife was shocked when he started banging his own head against the side of the car.
She asked him, “What’s wrong? This is good news!”
The man replied, “If I had known what you were doing, I would have given you all of my business!”
SHARE if you laughed!
