Guy Finds Epic Way To Get Revenge On Ex-Wife Without Her Ever Knowing

By

Passive aggression is not an ideal way to get what you want in this world. But, when it's taken to extremes, it does make for one hell of a story.

Recently, a man went on Amazon to review the Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat.

His review was glowing, but not for the reasons you're thinking.

The reviewer's wife recently left him, and he wanted to get back at her.

Prior to the divorce, the man installed the WiFi-enabled thermostat in their home in order to save some money on the electricity bill.

When the reviewer was kicked out of his home, his wife had her new boyfriend, Carl, move in. (Side note: I have never met anyone named Carl I approve of.)

According to the review,

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.

So, the reviewer came up with a little plan to get back at his wife and her new hubby.

He wrote,

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.

It's the little things in life that keep us going.

Here's how the review begins:

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.

He originally bought the device to save money for his wife:

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.

Explaining how the device works:

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.

Then, his wife left him, and he sought his silent revenge:

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?
