An idea for Christmas

An elderly father in Britain calls his son in Cape Town and says, ‘Son, I hate to ruin your Christmas, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; 35 years of misery is enough.’
‘Dad, what are you talking about?’ the son screamed.
‘We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,’ the old man says. ‘We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Australia and tell her.’
Frantic, the son called his sister, who exploded on the phone. ‘Like heck they’re getting divorced,’ she shouted, ‘I’ll take care of this.’
She immediately called her dad and screamed down the line, ‘You are NOT getting divorced! Don’t you do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back and we’ll both be there on Friday. Until then, don’t do a thing. DO YOU HEAR ME?’
The elderly father hung up and then turned to his wife and said. ‘It worked, they’ll be here for Christmas and paying their own air fares.’
