Highlights From The Letter To The Other Man
There are plenty of creative ways to get back at a cheating spouse. Check out the very public way this guy confronted his wife's supposed "other man."
What He DidDesertrose7 / pixabay.com
Everyone handles cheating differently. Some people stay with their significant other, some just end it, and some get back at them, or the person they're cheating with. That's what this husband did. He shamed his wife's assumed "other man" in the most permanent and public place he could: the internet. While we don't have confirmation that this letter is completely legitimate, we get a sense that it is. Here's the letter he posted to Craigslist, edited for clarity.
"To the guy doing my wife. You know who you are. Yes I know."
It's hard to read this part in any voice but Lauren Conrad's. Is anyone else having flashbacks to "The Hills" when she and Heidi Pratt (then Montag) were yelling outside of a club? We very clearly remember the phrase "You know what you did" being thrown around.
"No I am not angry, I would just ask a few things of you. After all, you are giving it to my wife."HeloResende / pixabay.com
This is the moment when most of us would start looking over our shoulders, wondering what sort of debt we'd now owe this guy for the rest of our lives.
"1. Please stop leaving the seat up, I keep getting blamed and it is starting to get old."rizzidesigns / pixabay.com
One might think that, if you're sleeping with someone else, you'd consider that there are two possible culprits. Then again, the magic and mystery is said to fade away post-vows; maybe you'd just hope the new guy would want to keep some of the mystery alive.
"2. You may be giving me a chance to go fishing more often, but please stop drinking my beer."Pexels / pixabay.com
"It is fine if you have a couple while you visit (God knows I drink plenty before I find her attractive), but please leave me a few as I have to be there longer than you."
"3. If you do drink the last one, buy more or leave money on the counter. I will pick some up."magma / pixabay.com
This is just common courtesy, man. Honestly, it's like taking a cross-country ride from someone and not even offering to pitch in for gas. You just don't do it.
"4. Please replace the toilet paper when you use it all."kropekk_pl / pixabay.com
"For some reason my 5-year-old son believes if it's not there, he does not have to wipe. We keep it under the sink, unless you can recommend a better spot?"
"5. After doing my wife, please use something disposable to wipe off with."miniqueaustralia / pixabay.com
"The basket of clothes on the right is mine and the clothes are clean. As my wife does not do my washing, I run out of time rushing to work. Last week my sweatshirt was crusty (thanks)."
"6.Please do not tell my children that you are their uncle, they are young not mentally challenged."
Sleeping with someone else's spouse is already a pretty garbage move. Trying to worm your way into the lives of their kids is just another much lower level.
"7. Please stop turning the heat up."Arcaion / pixabay.com
"You pay nothing and MUD is putting it in my a**, my wife may like it but I think it hurts." Granted, we're not entirely clear if MUD is supposed to be...mud or if that's an acronym for something. We'll let you decide.
"8. When she asks, "Do these pants make me look fat?" say no."Myriams-Fotos / pixabay.com
"You may think giving a different answer will make her think twice about eating a gallon of ice cream a day but all you are doing is giving her a reason to go buy more pants that she will look just as fat in."
This is a little bit of a low blow to his wife. Then again, if she is cheating, well, there's no excuse for that. Hopefully his view on her looks didn't contribute to the problems in their relationship...
"9. Stop eating the baked goods."moleshko / pixabay.com
"The brownies you ate were from my mom for my birthday. My wife has not cooked anything that good for years, and if she does, she will not share." So clearly food does play a bit of a role in their issues, noted.
"10. Try shifting your weight when you sit on my chair."spaway / pixabay.com
"The recliner that I rarely have time for (soccer games and practice, basketball camp for the kids takes much of my time and I try to help with school work too) has a groove in it that forces me to roll to the left."
"Lastly I would like [to] thank you for taking her to lunch on [Valentine's] Day."annca / pixabay.com
"She was not as hungry as usual and only ordered one meal. I may be able to use the money I saved to take the children to a movie. I hope you can help me with these items, it may become awkward if I have to confront her. If you can do this for me I will give you a heads up on when I will be gone and for how long so that you don't feel rushed."
