You could throw your dastardly husband’s stuff out the window in classic rom-com style or you could slash his tires like a country song. You could be the better person and move on with your life.
Or, you could do like this Canadian woman and put up a Craigslist ad for a yard sale resplendent with the lying cheater’s worldy goods. Metaphorical burn.
According to The Province, the Craigslist ad read “Husband left us for a piece of trash, selling everything while he is gone this weekend with his floozie.” She sold his favorite sofas, tools “he didn’t have a clue how to use,” and absolutely no clothes as those, probably tainted with floozie lipstick prints, were burned in the driveway. Literal burn!
“I want the house empty on Monday when he returns because that will be a shock for him to see. So come pick out what you would like Saturday and Sunday at 8 a.m,” said the ad.
“Don’t come too early (like he did) because I will be thoroughly enjoying some wine with my girlfriends this evening as we clean out all this stuff and likely be nursing hangovers in the morning. So please speak softly to the ladies wearing the sunglasses.”
Will the revenge of a woman scorned prove profitable or just the subject of a blues song? Well, the woman might have to split half the proceeds with her “lying, cheating” husband but she’ll always have her blues song.
