The Mother-in-law’s Test

A woman wanted to test her three son-in-laws to see what kind of men that her daughters had married.

To test the first one, she arranged for the two of them to go for a walk along the river. During the walk she pretended to lose her footing and fell into the river. The young man immediately dove into the water to rescue the woman.

The next day he was shocked to see a brand new car parked in his driveway. On the vehicle was a note that said, “Much love and appreciation, Your Mother-in-law.”

To test the second one, she again arranged for the two of them to go for a walk along the same river. Once again she pretended to lose her footing and fell into the river. As before, the young man immediately dove into the water to rescue the woman.

The next day, he too saw a brand new car parked in his driveway with a note that said, “Much love and appreciation, Your Mother-in-law.”

It was the same test for the third one. As they walked along the river she “lost her footing” and fell into the river. Quickly assessing the situation, the young man released a maniacally chuckle and left the scene. The woman was pulled away by the river’s current and drowned.

The next day the third son-in-law awoke to find a brand new car parked in his driveway. He rushed outside to see what it was about. He could hardly believe his eyes when he read the note, “Much love and appreciation, Your Father-in-law.”
