His ex-wife acted too calm and friendly after losing her home to her cheating former husband who moved in with his new lover, but he never knew that she had the best trick ever under her sleeve.
They say that revenge is a plate better served cold, and this recently divorced woman would know about this. She not only devised a simple master plan to get back at her ex but ended up keeping the very expensive family home.
It all began with a secret affair between a married man and his secretary, but when things started to get more serious between the two, the man was convinced that he could no longer stay married to his wife of decades.
37 years of marriage weren’t important for Jake when he decided to leave his wife for his much younger secretary, who naturally insisted on living in his and Edith’s very expensive home.
Jake’s lawyers won in the lawsuit and he was free to live in the house with his new love. He gave Edith three days to leave.
On the first day, she packed her stuff into box crates and suitcases. The second day the movers came to get her things.
On the third day, she had lunch in the dinning-room for the last time. She had a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of Chardonnay.
When she was done, she went into each and every room and placed a half-eaten shrimp shell soaked in caviar into the hollow of all of the curtain rods.
Then she went back to the kitchen, cleaned it and left the house. Her husband and his new lover moved in immediately and everything was great for the first several days until a horrible smell started to spread around the house.
It was unbearable – they first tried cleaning the house and airing it. They ensured that there weren’t any dead rodents in there and washed the carpets.
They put air fresheners everywhere and even hired exterminators to set off gas canisters. Despite all their efforts, they had to move out of the house for several days.
They also replaced the wool carpeting, which cost a lot of money. But the smell remained and got even worse.
Their friends stopped visiting them, and even their repairman quitted over the unbearable smell in the house. Then the maid followed. The couple was forced out of the house by the smell.
They had no alternative but to put the house for sale, but despite cutting the price on half, they couldn’t find anybody willing to buy the foul-smelling property.
Soon, the house had a reputation around the city, and when it reached the ears of local realtors, they stopped returning their calls. All that was left for the lovers to do was to take a huge loan from the bank to buy a new house.
One day, Edith called her ex-husband to ask him how things were working out for him with his new relationship, and he told her about all the problems he had with the house.
She listened and told him that she missed the place so much that she would decrease her divorce settlement in order to get the house back.
He was thinking that fortune had smiled upon him and agreed to sell her the house for one-tenth its value on the condition that she signed the papers that same day. The deed was done within an hour.
One week later the two lovers watched were relieved to see the movers packing their things and taking them into their new house. Including the curtain rods.
This is not the only story on which a cheating husband thinks he had his way only to be made a fool of by a very clever and proud woman. If you think justice was served in the story above, you will definitely enjoy this other similar story.
