The story of one man’s plot to catch his wife cheating is spreading across the Internet like wildfire.
In a story shared by The San Francisco Globe, a man apparently had a feeling that his wife was cheating on him, but instead of confronting her, he decided to plan a birthday surprise with her family to catch her in the act.
“So I had a feeling she was cheating as she set off a lot of red flags. Constantly laughing and smiling when texting, saying it was just her mother when I asked. Needing to stay late every night after work,” the man writes. “When I'd call in her co-workers said she left hours ago. When I asked her what was going on she'd laugh it off and say it was just something they did to each other at the office all the time.”
After some other signs popped up, the man decided that he would plan to catch her cheating on her birthday, but instead of just doing it himself, he wanted her whole family involved.
“You see after asking her what she wanted to do on her birthday this year she was rather insisted on me going out of town with my friends as she just had to work anyways and didn't want to be reminded she was aging,” the man explained. “So I know something is up and after finding a bottle of champagne and two glasses hidden in my closest something in me snaps. So I do what any sensible man would have done. I leave and go to my friends house pretending like I am going out of town. While there I call up her mother, father, sister and several of her friends. I tell them how I want to give her a big surprise by sneaking into her room with party streamers, kazoos and a big cake with candles. Sounds fun right?! Well, boy was it.
“I had everyone meet me outside our apartment at 8:30 in the morning,” the man continued. “We all pile in the elevator (about 8 of us in total); her mother is holding the cake and I'm reminding everyone to be as quiet as they can be. I put my key in and unlock the door; we all sneak in and make our way down the hall towards the bedroom. Each holding a kazoo and her mom holding the cake grinning from ear to ear.”
The plan wound up going exactly as the man envisioned, and when it came time to reveal the surprise, everyone got a lot more than they bargained for.
“Well as I throw open the door, we all yell surprise! But the surprise was on us and there was my wife, butt naked with her lover staring at us wide eyed,” the man recalled. “Mom drops the cake, sister screams, father begins to shout. I pretend like I'm horrified to which her friends try to push everyone out while yelling at her. My wife, excuse me, ex-wife is sobbing and screaming how could I while the lover is desperately trying to put his pants on while running out of the place. Needless to say, it was one of the best birthday presents I have ever given.”
It’s safe to say this couple’s marriage didn’t end well, but at least this guy has a story to tell.
