Some stories have the power to touch our hearts and bring a smile to our faces. In a world that can feel grim and serious, a funny anecdote is always welcome. This particular story has all the ingredients of an entertaining tale – drama, revenge, and an unexpected ending.

It all begins with a letter from a husband. He decides to ask his wife for a divorce. But little did he know, his wife had a brilliant response up her sleeve – a response that will leave you in stitches.

The husband’s letter goes like this:

“Dear wife,
I’m writing you this letter to tell you that I’m leaving you forever. I’ve been a good man to you for 7 years and I have nothing to show for it. These last 2 weeks have been hell. Your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today and that was the last straw. Last week, you came home and didn’t even notice I had a new haircut, had cooked your favorite meal, and even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. You ate in 2 minutes and went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps. You don’t tell me you love me anymore; you don’t want sex or anything that connects us as husband and wife. Either you’re cheating on me or you don’t love me anymore; whatever the case may be, I’m gone. Your EX-Husband. P.S. Don’t try to find me. Your SISTER and I are moving away to West Virginia together! Have a great life!”

Now, brace yourself for the wife’s brilliant reply:

“Dear Ex-Husband,
Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. It’s true you and I have been married for 7 years, although a good man is a far cry from what you’ve been. I watch my soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining and griping. Too bad that doesn’t work. I DID notice when you got a haircut last week, but the first thing that came to my mind was ‘You look just like a girl!’ Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can’t say something nice, I didn’t comment. And when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY SISTER because I stopped eating pork 7 years ago. About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them, and I prayed it was a coincidence that my sister had just borrowed $50 from me that morning. After all of this, I still loved you and felt we could work it out. So when I hit the lottery for 10 million dollars, I quit my job and bought us 2 tickets to Jamaica. But when I got home, you were gone. Everything happens for a reason, I guess. I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won’t get a dime from me. So take care.
Your Ex-Wife, Rich As Hell & Free!”

Now, isn’t that a hilarious and unexpected twist? This witty and clever response from the wife just goes to show that revenge can come in the form of humor.
