I own and work in a small office where we manage commercial real-estate. I have a total of over twenty-two million square feet of warehouse space and over a million square feet of office space. I stay away from retail; the turnover is too great and they require a lot of time and maintenance.
I just love Fridays, it's the slowest day of the week. I generally take the office people out to lunch, I have two women that do all the office work and the billing and one field assistant. To makes sure everyone is happy we rotate who get to decide where we have lunch, and this week we had deli. I ate so much I was stuffed and I ended up leaving the office early.
So the work week has finally ended and the weekend is here and I can take it easy.
My wife of ten years has a small business that helps people get organized. She has a home office but most of her work is done at her customers' location.
Walking in the house I saw my wife talking with a woman at the dining room table. Mia waved at me and motioned to me to come in. "Donna, this is my husband."
"You're Jonny Wall," she said.
"I have been for the past forty years." She reached into her case and pulled out some papers and handed them to me.
"Jonny Wall, you have been served."
"Thank you, and I hope the rest of your day goes as easy as this was," I said. The look on her face was priceless. Mia was even more surprised by my actions, I think. She must have thought I would overreact or do something evil.
I walked to the refrigerator and got a beer out, sitting down at the table to read the papers I was served with. Mia must have let Donna out and gone to the bedroom, since I was all alone and didn't hear her moving around.
After reading the papers, I got another beer and went into the living room and turned on the television. I knew that ESPN had a gold match on and I was wondering who was in the lead.
"Jonny, why are you just sitting there? I thought you would be all pissed off and ranting, but you're just sitting there watching TV."
"What do you want me to do, I've read the court filings, I cannot see anything wrong with your requests. I do wonder what you mean by mental cruelty. I have never done anything cruel to you. I never said anything when you had your affairs with the yard boy, or the pool cleaner, or Shawn from across the street."
"How... , what makes you think I ever cheated on you?"
"Oh I have proof, both pictures, and audio tapes and even sworn statements from two of them. I also have photos of others, but I wasn't able to get their names since they seemed to be one day stands."
"If you thought I was cheating why didn't you leave me?"
"Oh that's simple, you're a great fuck and it would be easier and cheaper than dumping your sorry ass."
Mia just sat there; her mouth was open and not saying anything.
"In your filings you ask for all the cash in the bank, the house, the investment accounts."
"I think that is only fair," Mia said.
"Fine, I have objections to your request; however there just might not be as much money as you think there is. Since you don't want me as a husband anymore, I'll pack my things and move out tonight, as soon as I see the end of today's round of golf."
I packed a few things and went over to my sister's place. I had called her earlier and she told me that I was more than welcome to move in and stay as long as I needed.
Saturday morning Sissy woke me and told me to come down for breakfast; after breakfast Sissy asked what was going on.
