When a significant other cheats on us our natural reaction is to want to get revenge. Most of us either don’t do it or if we do it isn’t very creative. That was not the case for one Amanda Chatel.
As she writes regarding what she did in an article for Your Tango, “Yes, I know that puts me in the ‘crazy’ category, but f*ck it.”
I beg to differ. I think what she did was fantastic. Here’s why…
After analyzing what was said, what wasn’t said, plus some brewing up of suspicions on my part, my husband decided to come clean about a cold hard fact: He, a 48-year-old man, had cheated on me with a 20-year-old; a sprite young thing just two years older than his own daughter (not mine; a daughter from a previous marriage).
If that weren’t enough, they were “soulmates” (they both like The Beatles and have the same birthday) and she was moving in with him. And just when I thought I couldn’t take anymore, she, his 20-year-old “soulmate,” sent me a poem; a poem she wrote about me.
Wow. That’s… amazing.
Before I took to Google, I briefly considered packing up my own sh*t. Yes, I know that puts me in the “crazy” category, but f*ck it. You get cheated on by your husband, then receive a poem from his 20-year-old girlfriend, and then we can talk.
But I realized such a thing probably wouldn’t make it through customs. So, after a bit of research, I came across, Sh*texpress, a website that provided the exact service I needed. For less than $20, I could send a delightful care package of horse sh*t to anyone in the world. It was an anonymous service, although something tells me that when he opens it, it won’t be very anonymous.
Chatel closes her story with this quote, “Was I immature to do such a thing? Probably. Did they deserve it? Absolutely.”
That I can definitely agree with.
