This is the most dramatic story of 2017
Infidelity is an awful thing to do to someone, yet it happens so frequently that it seems like the norm.
Two middle-aged women who never met before somehow found out that their husbands were having affairs. It wasn’t just the typical thing though — the men were allegedly getting it on with each other. The cheating husbands both arranged a “business trip” to Chicago, and the suspicious women somehow got in touch with each other to share information. Through their investigation, they started to realize that their men were secretly in love with each other.
The women headed to the airport to follow their husbands and confront them. That’s when they encountered 27-year-old Brittney-Jade Colangelo at the airport’s bar, and she was extremely interested in their story even though the married women had no clue she was listening.
How it Started
Brittney couldn’t help but overhear the distraught women’s conversation, and she took to Twitter to tell the world what was going on. She started off her tale, “There are two women next to me at the airport bar who are flying cross-country to ambush their husband they think are sleeping together.”
Brittney deemed one woman Shot Lady because she kept ordering much-needed shots of liquor for both of them. The other was named Gum Lady because of the extreme amount of chewing gum in her purse. Gum Lady explained her gum stash to Shot Lady, “You can’t yell at someone with bad breath. My dad taught me that.” And Britteny was sure that there would be plenty yelling if the allegations turned out to be true. Gum Lady continued, “Hopefully I’ll gain a sister in you if I lose my husband.”
Shot Lady seemed like a “seasoned pro” at downing shots while Gum Lady seemed like she had never drank one in her life. As Shot Lady downed her drinks, she said, “I don’t care if they’re gay. I care they lie.”
Brittney commented on the intense nervous energy and sadness the women had about missing all the signs, “I have never seen a 50+ year old white lady snap gum with this much vigor. Shot lady: ‘My daughter’s boyfriend thought my husband was gay.’” The jilted women ordered more shots of courage. One woman has a grandson, and she showed off his Halloween pictures. Shot lady smartly quipped, “Our husbands should be Bert and Ernie.”
Gum Lady began to cry about the strange situation, but Shot Lady was better at keeping it together, patting her new-found friend in misery on the back and humming to Sammy Hagar’s song playing on the speakers. Due to Shot Lady’s proclivity towards alcohol, she may have endured rough times in her life before and is used to disappointment by now.
Like a Movie
The women realize that their predicament is quite similar to that of the Netflix show Grace & Frankie which they’ve never seen. The comedy is about two women played by 9 to 5 co-stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda whose husbands strike up an affair and leave their wives for each other. The women start up a quirky, supportive friendship.
Our narrator was surprised the women weren’t aware of the show, but hopes that they will be fans now. Their attention is turned from their situation to animal videos: the ultimate palate cleanser.
Birttney said to her audience, “They’re currently laughing at cute animal videos. This is so pure except I know Gum Lady is gonna cry at any moment.” Our narrator then finds out that they’re going to Chicago which is about 45 minutes of flight time away.
Their flight may not be very long, but it will be so tense. It could seem like it’s taking forever when they’re in the air, but when they touchdown, a confrontation will come at them quickly whether they’re ready or not.
