Spouses who cheat might find themselves in some fairly messy situations. The lying, sneaking around, and deceptions can catch up quickly. And in most cases, the consequences are NOT worth the drama and trouble that could have been avoided by just being honest in the first place. Trying to lie to the person who knows you best in the entire world almost never turns out alright, and as this guy learned the hard way…treating your spouse like an idiot is usually the WORST idea you could ever have…
A fifteen-year-old came home with a Porsche and his parents began to yell and scream, “Where did you get that car?”
He calmly told them, “I bought it today.”
“With what money!?” demanded his parents. “We know what a Porsche costs.”
“Well,” said the boy, “this one cost me fifteen dollars.”
The parents began to yell even louder. “Who would sell a car like that for fifteen dollars!?” they asked.
“It was the lady up the street,” said the boy. “Don’t know her name — they just moved in. She saw me ride past on my bike and asked me if I wanted to buy a Porsche for fifteen dollars.”
“Oh my goodness!” moaned the mother, “she must be a child abuser. Who knows what she will do next? John, you go right up there and see what’s going on.”
So the boy’s father walked up the street to the house where the lady lived and found her out in the yard calmly planting flowers. He introduced himself as the father of the boy to whom she has sold a Porsche for fifteen dollars and demanded to know why she did it.
“Well,” she said, “this morning I got a phone call from my husband. I thought he was on a business trip, but I learned from a friend he has run off to Hawaii with his secretary and really doesn’t intend to come back. He claimed he was stranded and asked me to sell his new Porsche and send him the money. So I did.”
He thought he was sneaky. He thought he had covered all of his bases. He thought that he could avoid the commotion of trying to split their assets in a messy divorce. He was so, SO wrong! Honestly, this sounds like something I might do if I found myself in this position. This woman is a genius. I can just imagine the conversation after he realized what had happened!
“But, $15? I’m…uh, I’m stranded!”
“You can go ahead and give that $15 to your lawyer…you’re going to need it when you get back home!”
I hope she cancelled all of the credit cards, too!
