Everything She Needs
A married couple is driving along a rural highway in an older automobile doing a steady 45 miles per hour. The woman is behind the wheel.
Her husband suddenly looks across at her and speaks in a clear voice. "I know we've been married for over twenty years, but I want a divorce."
"The wife says nothing, but keeps looking at the road ahead and slowly increases her speed to 50 mph.
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 by the way, she's a far better lover than you are."
Again the wife stays quiet, but grips the steering wheel a bit more tightly and slowly increases the speed to 65.
He pushes his luck. "I want the house," he says insistently. She speeds up to 70.
"I want the car, too," he continues. 75 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 abutment. 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 think I've got everything I need."
"Oh, really," he inquires, "so what have you got?"
Just before they slam into the concrete at 80 mph, The wife turns to him and smiles.
