Daily Joke: A Successful Businessman Has a Candid Talk with His New Son-in-Law
Today’s dose of laughter is all about in-laws. With a disillusioned father-in-law and another’s show of appreciation, the relationships between in-laws will always provide a source of humor.
ALWAYS AN OPTION
A successful businessman’s only daughter recently got married, and he decided to have a private talk with his new son-in-law to welcome him to the family properly.
“As you know, my family is my world,” he said to his son-in-law. “You are part of that family now, and so I am making you an equal partner in my business. All you have to do is go to the factory every day and learn the operations."
The son-in-law slowly shook his head and said, “I’m sorry, but that won’t work, my doctor told me to stay away from noisy places like factories due to my ear condition.”
“I see,” the father-in-law replied, “Then you can work in the office and take charge of some of the operations.”
“I can’t stand being stuck behind a desk in an office all day, so that won’t work either,” the son-in-law said.
The father-in-law scratched his head in puzzlement. “Hang on a second,” he said. “I just made you an equal partner in my flourishing business, but you can’t be in factories, and you won’t work in the office. What am I going to do with you?”
“Easy,” his son-in-law said. “Buy me out.”
SHOW OF APPRECIATION
A rich mother in law wanted to test whether her three sons-in-law really liked her, or just pretended because of her wealth.
She devised a plan to test their real intent and decided to invite each of them to go jogging with her. The following morning the first son-in-law joined her for a run, as they reached the river she purposefully slipped into the river.
Within seconds he pulled her to safety and to show her gratitude, she sent him a brand new Lexus and $20m in bearer bonds. She attached a note that read, “Thank you for saving my life - MIL.”
The next morning she resumed her efforts when her second-son-in law joined her for a jog. When they got to the river, she fell into the river again. Her second-son-in-law also rushed to her aid and saved her life.
Grateful for his efforts, she also sent him a Lexus and $20m in bearer bonds and a short note, “Thank you for saving my life - MIL.”
Pleased with the outcome thus far, the time came for her third son-in-law’s test. When they got to the river, she got swept into it's current for the third time.
He made no attempt to rescue her and walked back home. The following morning he received an Aston Martin, a Jaguar, and $50m in bearer bonds with a note that read, “Thank you for saving my life - FIL.”
