    After 17 years of marriage, a man dumped his wife for a younger woman.

    The downtown luxury apartment was in his name and he wanted to remain there
    with his new love so he asked the wife to move out and then he would buy her
    another place.

    The wife agreed to this, but asked that she be given 3 days on her own
    there, to pack up her things.

    While he was gone, the first day she lovingly put her personal belongings
    into boxes and crates and suitcases.

    On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her things.

    On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their candlelit Dining
    table, soft music playing in the background, and feasted on a pound of
    shrimp and a bottle of Chardonnay.

    When she had finished, she went into each room and deposited a few of the
    resulting shrimp shells into the hollow of the curtain rods. She then
    cleaned up the kitchen and left.

    The husband came back, with his new girl, and all was bliss for the first
    few days. Then it started; slowly but surely. Clueless, the man could not
    explain why the place smelled so bad.

    They tried everything; cleaned & mopped and aired the place out. Vents were
    checked for dead rodents, carpets were steam cleaned, Air fresheners were
    hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in, the carpets were replaced,
    and on it went.

    Finally, they could take it no more and decided to move. The Moving company
    arrived and did a very professional packing job, taking everything to their
    new home...

    ...including the curtain rods.
