I’ll Have My Sec­re­tary Do It

30-some­thing guy to group: So yeah, I mean my ex-wife found out I bought a new car, a Benz, and that my new girl­friend was dri­ving around in it. So she got all pis­sy and told me to buy her a car. So I bought her the shit­ti­est Toy­ota I could find at the used car lot. No joke, this thing is a death trap. I hope she burns alive in it.
Friend: Um, don’t you have kids?
30-some­thing guy: Yeah, so?
Friend: Does­n’t your ex-wife dri­ve the kids?
30-some­thing guy: Oh fuck me, now I have to tell her that I tried to kill her.
