    sounds about right.

      I find fault with a long-term relationship being defined as over 2 years.  I think 4 weeks is more than enough quality time needed to realize your whore-stress isn’t that much fun at eight in the morning, either.

    The moral: Two-thirds of male bankers will pay half a million to be rid of one bitch and are willing to fight tooth-and-nail to get another back.

    The banker’s wife meets him at the front door and says, “All you do is work and talk about money anymore.  I want a divorce!'”

    The banker pleads, “Oh please baby, I’m sorry…tell me what you want and I’ll get it for you.  Nothing is too good for you.  How about a new remodel for the home?”  She shakes her head “no”.  

    “How about a 2-week cruise?”.  Again, she shakes her head “no”.

    The banker, getting alarmed, says, “OK, how about a new Honda van or maid service”.  His wife gets angrier and shouts, “No!” through clenched teeth.

    “Honey, I’ll get us a beach hous…how about that??” whines the banker.  Wife screams, “No, no, no!!!  I want a divorce!!”

    Banker says, “Well, I wasn’t planning on spending that much……”
