WOW, never cheat on your S.O!!


It could cost you your PC. (BTW you shouldn't cheat regardless)

A friend of mine works with this woman who had suspected that her husband
was cheating on him he was spending all night on his PC and was paying her
little attention but she wanted to find out for sure.
She had my friend come over while he was at work and look at his computer and found out after going through his Trillian
logs that he was meeting another women that weekend (last weekend) at a
hotel. The husband had told his wife he had to go out of town for some company training. She drove to that hotel and found his car and came back and
called my friend up on Sunday and told him to come by and he can have anything he wants for $50. My friend now has a new Dell Inspiron9300 laptop, a Dell 8400 Workstation with 19 inch flatpanel monitor and a Linksys Wireless router. Over $3000 worth of equipment for $50. I asked him what happened with the husband and the wife and he said he doesnt know because she come to work all week. He said he sold the router, disabled the onboard NIC on the PC and bought a new one so they couldnt trace the MAC.

I assume you meant "shouldn't" in your brackets?

Nice edit, Jaz

Ah, Google ads... don't ya love 'em? This one showed up while I was reading this thread
Apparently their context matching is smart enough yet to figure out that this was about one of the reasons not to cheat...

You know what I think is just as bad as cheating on your significant other, actually going over and buying $3000 worth of computer equipment for $50.00 just cause the wife wanted to out of despite. Just because her husband cheated on her, I think its not only wrong of her to sell his own personal stuff but the person buying it knows why she's selling for so cheap.
Why associate yourself in such a mess? That's like those people who key (scratch) someone else's car for taking up two spots, its not the cars fault, it's the person who double parked who should get the beating.

To me, all three are guilty of doing wrong doing to others. Though the most severe is the person actually cheating, that doesn't call for such revenge in anyway to me until she takes him to court and wins his stuff, then she can sell it for however much she wants..

yeah well my friend is not the most ethical individual I know but he did say he kept saying he cant take it and she said take it or Im giving it away anyway so he gave her $50 and walked away laughing.
But the husband shouldnt have cheated in the first place. What you reap is what you sew.

Hey, the guy was clearly incapable of using the computer properly anyway! Who leaves their system in such a state that their private documents can be accessed without at least knowing about it?

Cheers

Not so nice. She should give him 50 bucks, the computers and sleep with your friend. Now that's revenge

I totally agree.. but what she should do is the right thing, if she doesn't want a marriage to go to waste, work it out, if that's impossible, divorce him and let the courts say who gets what, then she can sell off whatever she got from the settlement for however much she thinks it's worth. Doing immature crap like that with possessions that can be easily proven of value is only going to weaken her case in seeking more out of a divorce settlement.

Trust me, my own father went thru a similiar ordeal, he didn't cheat but his wife was just crazy, probably used him from the start. She didn't get crap from the things she did while my dad was out on the road (truckdriver) the week she decided to leave him.
