I almost wish my life was full of emotional woe and tumultuous relationships just so that I could concoct some fancy revenge plan and wreak havoc on some douchebag’s life. Note how I said “almost” though, because getting cheated on sounds like it blows. Again, I wouldn’t know since I’m perfect and my shit does in fact NOT stink, but reading Redditor 70127’s story about how his buddy in college ruined his cheating ex-girlfriend makes me wonder how I’d fuck someone over given an opportunity like this.
I was asked to submit this comment as a post, about one of my college buddies’ pro revenge on his cheating girlfriend of 2 years. He found out that she was cheating on him and he was literally crying in his car for a few days — he was planning on marriage and kids and the white picket fence with her. He didn’t tell her he knew, he told her that he was going to his parents house for a few days to help them with some repairs. Instead he hung out with us and cried, literally cried in front of his buddies, for a couple of days, we helped him get out of it. He sobered up and told us how he was going to destroy her and I didn’t even understand it at the time. But he was headed to a famous law school and was thinking way ahead of us.
He drove to his girlfriend’s mothers house, over an hour outside of town, with her items from his apartment nicely boxed up, and said he wanted to leave them with her for [GF]. GF’s mom and him had met several times, he had gone to their Thanksgiving, etc. GF’s mom was like, OK, but why? Not suspecting anything was wrong. And he said something brief like, “I don’t think we’ll be seeing each other again, but I needed to get this box back to her. But thank you for everything you’ve done for me. I’m sorry it didn’t work out.” GF’s mom is stunned and tries to ask why and what and everything but my friend just starts crying (I don’t think intentionally) and runs off and drives away. He never broke up with the GF — never even contacted her — she heard about it from her mom, who called her immediately, and he received confused and angry texts from the now-ex on his drive home. A little while later (at least a couple of weeks) he gets an email from the GF’s mom, I don’t remember the specifics, but it was not “I apologize for my daughter” but more like “I hope you find a woman who loves you unconditionally” or something to that effect. He responded with something like “Thanks, your note means a lot to me” — nothing negative.
Dude is now a up-and-coming lawyer, and still gets texts from the ex saying that she constantly hears from her mom how she ruined it with the one good guy she had and how she doesn’t deserve to be happy. Friend has never responded to one text, and blocked her from FB. Of course, this was all 100% planned – my friend wanted the hurt to come from someone who would stay in his ex’s life, not from someone who would be quickly forgotten. He deliberately created a rift in the closest relationship that two women can have. And all in a friendly 60-second conversation with no harsh words or accusations.
