The married couple

A married couple is driving along a highway doing a steady forty
miles per hour. The wife is behind the wheel.



Her husband suddenly looks across at her and speaks in a clear voice "I
know we've been married for twenty years, but I want a divorce."



The wife says nothing, keeps looking at the road ahead but she slowly
increases her speed to 45mph.



The husband speaks again. "I don't want you to try and talk me out of
it," he says, "because I've been having an affair with your best friend, and
she is a far better lover than you are."



Again the wife stays quiet, but grips the steering wheel more tightly
and then slowly increases the speed to 55.



He pushes his luck. "I want the house," he says insistently.



Up to 60. "I want the car, too," he continues.
65 mph. "And," he says, "I'll have the bank accounts, all the credit
cards and the boat!"



The car slowly starts veering towards a massive concrete bridge.



This makes him nervous, so he asks her: "Isn't there anything you
want?"



The wife at last replies-in a quiet and controlled voice.



"No, I've got everything I need," she says.



"Oh, really," he inquires, "so what have you got?"



Just before they slam into the wall at 65 mph, the wife turns to him
and smiles. "The airbag."


Moral of the Story: Women are clever. Don't mess with them.
