The young bride approached her awaiting husband on their wedding night
and demanded $20 for their first lovemaking encounter. In his highly
aroused state, he readily agreed.
This scenario was repeated each time they made love for the next 30
years, him thinking it was a cute way for her to buy new clothes, etc.
Arriving home around noon one day, she found her husband in a very
drunken state. Over the next few minutes she heard of the ravages of
financial ruin caused by corporate down sizing and it's effects on a
50 year old executive. Calmly, she handed him a bank book showing
deposits and interest for 12 years totaling nearly $1 million dollars.
Pointing across the parking lot she gestured toward the local bank
while handing him stock certificates worth nearly $2 million dollars
and informing him that he was the largest stockholder in the bank.
She told him that for 30 years she had charged him each time they had
sex, and this was the result of her investments.
By now he was distraught and beating his head against the side of the
car. She asked him why the disappointment at such good news and he
replied, "If I had known what you were doing, I would have given you
all of my business!"
