Let's hear it for the Irish and the Scottish amongst us

My grandad was Irish and my mother-in-law was Scottish so I am allowed to pass on this gem to you as told by a friend.

My father who lived in Scotland called me in London the day before Christmas Eve and said,
"I hate to ruin your day but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty years of misery is enough".

"Dad, what are you talking about?'" I said.

"We can't stand the sight of each other any longer", he said. "We're sick of each other and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Dublin and tell her".

In a panic, I called my sister, who exploded on the phone, "Like hell they're getting divorced", she shouted, "I'll take care of this".

She called Scotland immediately and screamed at her father, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling Sean back and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?"and she hung up.

Our old man hung up the phone and turned to mum.
"Done! They're coming for Christmas - and they're paying their own way for once."
