Getting dumped is hard, but some people take it differently than others. Some of us cry, some rage, some drink, some sleep around. However you react, though, there are really two types of people when it comes to being shafted: those who internalize it and those who lash out.
Luckily for us, this mystery woman decided to fulfill all of our pettiest fantasies. No, she didn’t do anything harmful like slash his tires or stalk him. She did something that anyone can do to someone else without much effort (or pesky legal charges coming your way). The woman in question was apparently treated quite poorly by Daniel Jones, who shared her prank with his 2,000+ followers on Twitter. Watch out! Wronged lovers everywhere are getting ideas…
Area Code 620
Twenty-three-year-old Daniel Jones of Lawrence, Kansas admits he f***ed up. He told MetroUK that he had a “friends with benefits” situation with this unnamed woman for years. Years!
At that age? Of course she would developed feels for him, that’s completely natural for many young women and men alike. But Daniel was a stereotypical horny young dude who was letting his peen do the thinking. While they were still involved, he went and hooked up with one of her friends. OUCH.
So what does the woman do? She starts giving out his cell phone number to dudes who try to hit on her that she’s not interested in. Two birds, one stone! Amazing. Genius.
Daniel tweeted a sample screenshot of a text from a rando guy and wrote “A girl I screwed over once upon a time now gives my number to all the guys she’s not interested in at the bars. Well played.”
The internet says…
The tweet received more than 16,000 retweets and 65,000 likes, and seems to have inspired lots of others also hoping to get some revenge on their cheating exes.
The replies to this are great, ranging from anger to cheer.
“Kudos for being honest about screwing her over. Hopefully, we all learn from the past and become better at recognizing our own faults,” @DW_Montgomery wrote.
“The only question is, which man do I screw over by doing this?” user @mckd1230 chimed in.
User @postgradscrewup hit him with a simple “marry her,” while @BLovedMercenary had their own, concerned advice: “Bro chill out, this is the type of savagery that females don’t need to know they can do to us.”
“I truly hate that you’re putting more women up on this… Lol,” @MrDannyDiNero agreed.
Then again, many others were all there for it.
“[H]ighly respect the hustle,” @annie_craw wrote.
“I’m loving that you don’t begrudge her that,” @secretbutterfly said.
Daniel’s phone doesn’t actually blow up that much from dudes looking for his ex-FWB. He claims it’s only happened a handful of times so far. Daniel says he “think[s] it’s pretty funny tbh,” which makes us wonder if he’s gotten any unsolicited d-ck pics yet.
Daniel also claims that he’s on good-ish terms with the woman now. I mean, if she really hated him, she could have easily put up his photo and address on Casual Encounters for some late-night rough sex with a stranger. Or leave a box of poo on his doorstep. Or hide raw seafood somewhere in his home. Or — the best one I’ve seen — put up fliers around his neighborhood detailing what a scumbag he is along with his photo and phone number.
Remember: Revenge is indeed sweet. But don’t go overboard and hurt anyone physically, interfere with their job, or get their family members involved. Don’t tell him you’re pregnant or have an STI. At that point, some therapy or kickboxing classes will help get that anger out. Once you’re through that, messing with their inbox a little bit might be just the relief you need!
What do you think of this woman’s petty revenge? Let us know, and SHARE this with your pettiest friends!
