Default Husband Gets Sweet Revenge On Ex Wife, And She Doesn’t Even Know It

This made me laugh ....


Husband Gets Sweet Revenge On Ex Wife, And She Doesn’t Even Know It

Nobody likes being dumped, and so sometimes the smallest victories can be the most satisfying. That’s exactly the case for this man. This is a review that he left for a thermostat on Amazon.

His Wife

“My former wife loves to take expensive vacations. We live in Ohio, which doesn’t exactly have extravagant places to see unless you like to watch grass growing or interstate construction. While we make OK money, I’m convinced she felt the need to single handedly improve the US economy by taking elaborate vacations: Broadway shows in New York City, gambling in Las Vegas, Spa’s in Arizona, sightseeing in San Francisco. The airlines know me so well they ask about my dog when I call to make reservations. His name is Fred.”

The Thermostat

In my attempt to try and save whatever I could so the princess could have her nice things I bought this Honeywell Wi-Fi enabled device so I could adjust the HVAC while we were away piling up massive amounts of debt on Mickey Mouse watches. I thought we could save a few bucks by keeping the temp cool in the winter and warm in the summer. The device was easy to install. I did not have the “blue” connector so I had to re-purpose the green one – this required an adjustment to the actual HVAC unit in our home. There are plenty of videos on Youtube to demonstrate how to do this. Within an hour I was up and running.

The Revenge

The device works flawlessly. You can adjust the temp from anywhere you have a Wi-Fi or cellular signal. Little did I know that my ex had found someone that had a bit more money than I did and decided to make other travel plans. Those plans included her no longer being my wife and finding a new travel partner (Carl, a banker). She took the house, the dog and a good chunk of my 401k, but didn’t mess with the wireless access point or the Wi-Fi enabled Honeywell thermostat.

Since this past Ohio winter has been so cold I’ve been messing with the temp while the new love birds are sleeping. Doesn’t everyone want to wake up at 7 AM to a 40 degree house? When they are away on their weekend getaways, I crank the heat up to 80 degrees and back down to 40 before they arrive home. I can only imagine what their electricity bills might be. It makes me smile. I know this won’t last forever, but I can’t help but smile every time I log in and see that it still works. I also can’t wait for warmer weather when I can crank the heat up to 80 degrees while the love birds are sleeping. After all, who doesn’t want to wake up to an 80 degree home in the middle of June?

Yes, it’s the small victories that count.
Scott me up Beamy.

There are very few people in this life that I dislike and only one that I actively hate ... my ex-wife. Although we divorced 40-years ago, until recently it seemed that the sole purpose of her life was to make mine as miserable as possible. I wasn't even the guilty party in the divorce but almost as soon as she left she realized that she had screwed up but as there was nothing she could do to redeem the situation, she resolved to make my life as miserable possible. As time went on I could afford to hire better lawyers than she could so the aggravation gradually diminished ... thankfully.

I would have loved to have control of the thermostat. OK, I know that it would have been mean and petty but hell, it would have been fun.
