Different people resort to different way of dealing with grief, however, this guy has set a new record to cope with his grief over his wife’s betrayal. Where most men would be furious at the thought another man getting it on with his wife, mostly showing angst ridden reactions but this one decided to rake your funny bone with making the events of his wife’s affair very public. He started a thread online to confront “the other guy” with a hilarious open letter to the guy who’s shagging his other half, making incredibly funny yet generous requests.
The surprisingly light-hearted letter, titled To The Man Doing My Wife, was posted to Craigslist and included a number of, to be fair, pretty reasonable gripes.
Blamed for it, to stop drinking all of the beer in the fridge when he’s away – or at least to buy some more or leave a bit of money if he does.
He also wrote:
Please replace the toilet paper when you use it all. 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?
He also requested that the interloper use something other than his clothes to ‘wipe off with’.
After doing my wife please use something disposable to wipe off with. 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).
Various other requests followed, but in the end he also wanted to thank his rival for taking his wife to lunch on Valentine’s Day – meaning she wasn’t hungry on their date and he was able to save some money.
And what’s a better way to conclude if not being each other’s wingman 😉
P.S. I’m going to take the kids to the Great Wolf Lodge on the 3rd of April for four days, I have a bottle of vodka above the fridge if you find yourself low on beer.
