John asks his wife, Mary, what she wants to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. “Would you like a new designer bag?” he asks.
“Not really,” says Mary.
“Well how about a new Mercedes sports car?” says John.
“No,” she responds.
“What about a new vacation home in the country?” he suggests.
She again rejects his offer.
Frustrated he finally asks, “Well, what would you like for your anniversary?”
“John, I’d like a divorce,” answers Mary.
John thinks for a moment and replies, “Sorry dear, I wasn’t planning to spend that much.”
