Divorce proceedings

    A married couple are driving along a highway doing a steady eighty kilometres per hour. The wife is behind the wheel. Her husband suddenly looks across at her and speaks in a clear voice. "Darling," he says. "I know we've been married for twenty years....... but I want a divorce."
    The wife says nothing, keeps looking at the road ahead but slowly increases her speed to ninety kph. The husband speaks again. "I don't want you to try and talk me out of it" he says, "because I've
    been having an affair with your best friend, and she's a far better lover than you are." Again the wife stays quiet, but grips the steering wheel more tightly
    and slowly increases the speed to one hundred and ten.
    He pushes his luck. "I want the house," he says insistently. Up to 120. "I want the car, too," he continues. 130kph.
    "AND," he says, "I'll have the bank accounts, all the credit cards and the boat." The car slowly starts veering towards a massive concrete flyover.
    This makes him a wee bit nervous, so he asks her..
    "Isn't there anything you want?" The wife at last replies - in a quiet and controlled voice. "No, I've got everything I need." she says. "Oh, really?" he enquires, "so what have you got?" Right before they slam into the wall at 160 clicks, the wife turns to
    him and smiles.
    "The airbag."
