40 Times Cheaters Got Hit with Instant KarmaBy Anglina Roberts
Generally speaking, cheating is not a good idea and it should never be taken lightly when you’re on the receiving end. A good balance of communication, trust, and honesty is the key to any successful relationship. Crossing those boundaries can cause irreparable damage and can lead to huge problems down the line.
When it happens, it’s heartbreaking. But just remember: finding out that your partner is a cheater just means they just weren’t the one for you. But not everyone sees it this way. While some go straight to planning their revenge, others simply get drunk and let it all out. To be fair, cheaters these days are taking their game to a whole new level. Take a look at these 40 heartbreakers who got what they deserve.
You Forgot The Suitcase Jane
Imagine finding out that your wife was cheating on you with her boss. How would you react? Jane thought that elaborate preparation and planning would be enough to cover her tracks.
Unfortunately for her, her husband is a close observer. In all her scheming, she forgot to hide her boss’s suitcase in the picture she sent. Kudos to her husband for having such a keen eye.
We’ve all been there: hitting send, only to realize that the message was sent to the wrong person. It’s fine as long as you didn’t say or do anything wrong. Unfortunately for this cheater, sending the wrong message to her boyfriend got her caught.
The worst part is that she even confirmed her adulterous intentions in the final message by saying that it was meant for her dad. How awkward is that?
Must Save Your Priorities
It’s funny how this girl’s boyfriend tried to make excuses before admitting that he’d been cheating. But what she said in the last message must have left him speechless. Imagine admitting that you’ve been seeing other people, only to find out that she’s still more concerned with her Xbox.
If you cheat, your personal worth does tend to plummet. To all you cheaters out there: don’t be surprised if you find yourself less valuable than your ex’s Xbox. Never play games with someone’s heart!
How awkward is this? Receiving compliments for a good time (that you had no part in) while being out of town with your parents. Just what could have happened here?
Some people will do anything to start a conversation. Hopefully, these two aren’t in a relationship, or things might get awkward from here on out. No matter what, we hope those pants eventually found their rightful owner.
It Runs In The Family
There’s no such thing as a “cheating gene”. It’s something you choose to do. But this family sure has problems making the right choices. This dad deserves an award for being so considerate towards his son. Instead of telling him that cheating is wrong, he instead gets in on the conspiracy, even suggesting that he delete the evidence.
While it’s funny to see his son get the better of him, we can’t deny how bad this father and son relationship is. It’s said that children learn all their habits from their parents, and going off this back and forth, we think there might be something to that.
I Wrote You A Song
There are many ways to get back at someone who’s cheating on you. One of those ways is writing a song about the wretched soul who wronged you. Here’s such an example of a bardic backlash.
I wonder how long it took for this person to weave such evocative lyrics into a nursery rhyme melody? It certainly captures the idyllic haze of youth and all its folly. Then again, being with the wrong person can often feel like you’re playing a game straight out of kindergarten.
Serves You Right
The hardest part of cheating is making sure you don’t get caught. You have to be careful in everything you do and say, especially when sending messages to other people.
Looks like he wasn’t looking where he sent his messages. Worst of all, he appears to be proud of what he’s done. Did he really think that saying “I love you” will fix things? Nope. Now you can say bye-bye to your girlfriend and your Xbox.
Nothing Lasts Forever
Lies rarely stay hidden. The truth usually comes to light sooner or later. This woman was seeing another man named Jared while in a relationship with James. Fortunately for James, the truth came out when it did.
Maybe she opened up her contacts and hit on the first “J” to come up. If you don’t like the person you’re with then just tell them the truth. You can’t always have your cake and eat it.
Message slip-ups are one of the best ways to catch a cheater. This man thought he could get away with cheating on his wife, but of course, he messed up. The worst part is that he was a family man.
He thought that disguising himself as an AT&T service provider could give him some cover, but he was foiled again. Looks like he’ll be having more than just communication issues from now on.
$10 To Keep Quiet
When you’ve started a family, lies and deception won’t just hurt your relationship with your wife, but it can also hurt your children, too. It’s devastating when children are swept up by their parents’ mistakes.
We hope Amanda told her mom about her dad’s affair. This guy’s wife deserves a better man who will treat her right, and Amanda deserves a better role model, going off that blackmailing reflex.
Jordyn Not Jordan
Dude, guess what! You messed up. Here’s a prime example of why literacy is such an important life skill. Learning to read is as important as it is fun.
Imagine the shock on Jordyn’s face when she received this message. Jordyn, we hope you’re doing well. You deserve a man better than this, a man who will cherish you, and who will never hurt you the way this man did.
Sorry, Sorry, Sorry
It’s funny how some people think that saying “sorry” can mend a broken heart and broken trust. Apologies are like band-aids. They stop the bleeding but the pain remains. Sometimes people try to turn the blame back on you, even if they were at fault.
We’re curious, though. What did that last message say? Were they saying sorry for three weeks, three days, three hours, three minutes, or three seconds? In any case, here’s a little advice if you’ve ever been cheated on: waste no time listening to apologies, just let the cheater go.
Caught Me Off Guard
Patience is underrated, especially when it comes to communication. Here’s an example of a woman who thought that her boyfriend was breaking up with her, but because of her snap judgment, the conversation got awkward pretty quickly.
Worst game night ever. Imagine getting cheated on, by your brother of all people. We hope Tony and his brother have managed to work things out between them.
What A Mess
Cheating is a relationship crime that will never go away, but if you can’t be honest with your partner, the least you can do is break things off with your bit on the side. Even those breakups can get messy, as you’ll see from this example.
Maybe just asking for a divorce would have been simpler. Looks like this guy is about to find himself living in a house with a lot of empty rooms at best or, or at worst no house at all. Good luck, buddy.
We can’t imagine a worse dad. Imagine calling your wife ugly and children annoying. How cruel! Unfortunately for him, his daughter is an intelligent kid who knows what to do with this situation.
Going off those demands, it’s likely her mother is about to take some shocking news. Imagine asking for an end to global warming. It’d be easier to imagine the end of the world. It looks like the end of family life for this guy. Is it getting hotter in here, or is it just me?
She’s with Her “Other” Boyfriend
How does that old saying go? “A good friend will bail you out of jail, but a best friend will lie to your boyfriend for you while you cheat on him at a party”. Did I get that right?
It takes a lot of trust to let a partner go out partying without you. And when that trust is broken, your whole relationship will suffer. We respect this man for allowing his girlfriend to go out and have fun without him. Don’t let one bad example put you off.
One of the greatest gifts a married couple can receive is that of a child. But what if that baby isn’t yours? It’s one thing to cheat on someone, but getting pregnant or getting someone else pregnant is another. How can you sleep at night knowing that you’re deceiving the person who truly loves you?
Now that’s what I call “keeping it in the family”. What a terrible situation, though. We hope Mark recovers from this betrayal, and that his therapy sessions don’t break the bank.
Blackmailing Your Children
Getting cheated on can happen to both women and men. Everyone is capable of it, that’s the sad truth. We all know it’s wrong, but if you’re going to make it happen, at least send that message to the right person.
There’s so much that we could say about this woman. To keep it short and sweet, do not emulate her behavior, people. It’s bad enough to cheat on your husband, but it’s another to raise your kid to want to go behind his father’s bad for financial rewards.
What A Shame
The worst thing about a liar is their lack of conscience. Sometimes people lie without realizing it, but other times they lie knowing full well what they’re doing. You know what they say: once a liar, always a liar. Here’s a good example.
Like this lady, who tells her partner she’s working overtime when she’s really out drinking with another man. She’s the worst kind of person, one who has no conscience and lies to get what she wants. Looks like it isn’t the first time, either.
In case you have an ex and you want to get back to them, make sure you know who you’re talking to, or else you’ll end up doing what this guy did. That being said, it looks like he’s been making more than a few mistakes this year.
At least he had the decency to break up with one girl before talking to another. I wonder if he’ll make the same mistake talking to his other ex. Maybe he just needs another one-point-five years to mature.
Oops! Wrong Person
Here’s a reminder that sending a message to the wrong person is okay, but what’s not okay is cheating on someone who loves you. But if you’re going to cheat, well… don’t. But if you have to, make sure you at least do it properly.
Sloppy cheaters like this one are the worst. We admire the restraint on show when Jenny’s name appeared. “Who’s Jenny?” she asks, as if a man like that would ever tell her the truth.
Double Check The Other Message
Some people misinterpret messages because they ignored earlier comments in the chat. Others just don’t pay attention and blabber about whatever’s on their mind. Case in point, this girl, who thought that her boyfriend had been cheating on her.
As a result, she shared a secret that she must have regretted instantly. Some people cheat and project their guilt right back onto their loving partners. What’s up with cheating on your boyfriend with his brother, though?
How Many Times Should I Say Sorry?
Some people think that saying sorry can make everything better. This isn’t always the case. Some people can forgive you, but they will never forget what you did. Other times, saying sorry just won’t ever be enough.
If you cheat on someone, you have to prepare yourself for the fact that your partner might never accept your apology. We understand how this woman reacted, and we’re proud of her. And to her ex, we think he can say sorry however many times he wants.
A boss having an affair with his secretary is an old story. Sadly, it’s still common in society today. The worst part of this tale is that the boss and his wife’s best friend are both in on it together. Unfortunately for this man, he has a smart son who loves his mom more than anything.
His wife is unlucky to have him as her husband, but she’s fortunate to have a good son. Here, the son shows greater manliness than his father, because he knows how to value the people in his life who trust him.
Who Dates Their Best Friends Ex?
Genuine question: who dates their ex’s best friend? Who does that? Because honestly, we can’t understand it. We know we’re not alone in thinking that dating your best friend’s ex is something you should never do.
This time, friendship wins out and a cheater is found out. So much for this guy. I hope that Amy quickly forgets this would-be cheater and has a great night with her BFF.
Cheating is A Choice
There is no such thing as accidental cheating. Cheating is and will always be a choice. If you cheat, you’re choosing to break the rules of a relationship. If a man claims that he cheated on you by accident, he’s just making things worse by not accepting his mistake.
It’s not like you forgot to be in a relationship. That’s impossible. This man thinks he can get away with it by saying it was just an accident. No, my friend, no one wants to believe that sorry story.
Cheating on someone with their sibling or best friend is the worst type of cheating. Why? Because it doesn’t just ruin your relationship, it tears apart friendships and families as well.
Unfortunately for this father, his son cleverly uncovered the wrongdoing and informed his mother about the infidelity. We have to wonder though, how could a man marry a woman and not know a little bit about his wife’s family history?
Broken Bones Vs. Xbox
Some choose to keep it to themselves when they fall victim to cheating. Others want to make their cheating partner’s life a living hell. The more proactive among us might decide to take revenge in more violent ways. Just like this woman who found out about her boyfriend’s cheating.
We can’t condone the use of violence or threatening language. But maybe taking some time away from his Medal of Honor games will give him time to think about his actions, which might do him some good—only if he survives the encounter with his angry ex, though.
My Two Girlfriends
Do people think that having multiple girlfriends makes them cool? Andy thinks so. He’s undoubtedly a player who never thinks twice about hurting other people’s feelings. These two deserve better than this cheater.
We hope that both girls follow through with dumping him. Nobody deserves to be treated this way. It’s heartwarming to see two sisters take action against the guilty cheater rather than turn against each other.
One way a cheater can slip up is by sending messages to the wrong person. Worse, they send it to their partner or children. We won’t encourage people to cheat, but if ever you do, please make sure you do it correctly. Don’t mess it up like this doofus.
This man sure is a sloppy cheater, and because of that, he’s sure in for some bad times. He deserves to be kicked out of the house and his wife’s life. A piece of advice: be honest with your partner. It will save both of you some time.
Zoe’s Biggest Problem
It’s not all fun when you cheat. It’s either twice the fun or twice the stress. And for Zoe, it’s the latter. When you start cheating, you become nervous and anxious in everything you do, which drives other people insane.
Just look at how stressed Zoe is right now. If we could give her some advice, we would tell her to pick one of those guys and stay faithful until the end of their relationship. That would probably help.
It’s so good to see women supporting each other, especially if there’s a cheater to be exposed. Hannah and Taylor seem to be such close friends that they share everything, including one insincere “boyfriend”.
Jacob didn’t see this one coming. Maybe he didn’t realize that both the girls she’s dating are best friends. And instead of fighting each other, they united against Jacob in revenge, and we love to see it.
Look Behind You
There’s a simple way to avoid cheating on your partner. It’s called being faithful. If you don’t want to be with the person you’re with right now, tell them. We know it’s not easy, but at least it’s honest.
We think that instead of sneaking around her man, this girl should have probably just broken it off with her current boyfriend. On the other hand, it’s a little odd how men are always sneaking around their cheating women, only to text them while they’re right behind their back. I guess they’re both going behind each other’s backs, in a sense.
Oh Snap, Wrong One
Imagine you receive a break-up message only for your partner to clarify that the message wasn’t for you. How would you feel? You’d probably experience a roller coaster of emotion. First, you’d be happy that it wasn’t for you. Then you’d wonder who the message was supposed to be for.
We don’t know whether we’d be mad or laughing. It took the girl a couple of minutes to realize something was wrong. We hope she’ll break up with that guy and find a new man anyway.
At Least She Was Honest
There’s nothing good about this cheater. It’s just that she came clean to her partner. Still, she lied to her boyfriend and messed around with someone else, someone who also happens to be in a relationship.
How can these people sleep at night knowing that they’re betraying the love of their lives? Does anyone know? Still, at least she did the right thing in the end. At least she was honest.
I Slipped Up
There’s a new expression to communicate the fact that you cheated, and that’s to say that you “slipped up”. This girl dared to tell her ex-fiance that she wants her back, even pointing out that she’s been saying sorry for three years. And she calls him irrational.
This girl even has the nerve to blame the breakup on him. Maybe she should take some responsibility for her own actions. He doesn’t owe her anything. He deserves better.
The Worst of the Worst
Some partners aren’t just bad because they cheat. Some partners are toxic, taking pleasure in making their partners feel small, helpless, and sad. These are the worst kinds of people and they don’t deserve another second of attention from anyone.
This crazy rant speaks for itself. This doesn’t seem like a good bedrock for a happy, trusting relationship, does it? If you ever see something like this, get out of there. Run.
Again, Wrong Girlfriend
Does it ever bother you when you receive a message from your partner’s mom about your partner? Some people hate it. This girl absolutely blew up when she received a text from her boyfriend’s mom.
While she was on vacation, she found out that her boyfriend was cheating on her in the worst possible way: through her boyfriend’s mom. We just hope she still enjoyed her holiday in Spain. At least she’ll have something to do to take her mind off things.
Imagine receiving a text message from your partner’s best friend saying “sorry about the break up”. How would you react? That’s exactly what happened in this story, but there was one little problem.
They were still dating. If this was a prank, then it wasn’t a very nice one. If they really had broken up, we hope she recovers soon. It was pretty mean, but there’s also something kind of funny about it.
You Forgot To Hide Something, Chelsea
Chelsea thought that she’d outsmarted her boyfriend. She must have been feeling very confident sending photos to her boyfriend in a hotel room and not checking them before hitting send. Unfortunately for her, her boyfriend is more observant than she is sloppy. Or maybe he just sensed that something was off. Either way, he made an interesting discovery about her before-bedtime snap.
Chelsea forgot to hide the pair of men’s boots under the table before taking her photo. She swore she was alone in the room. It’s also pretty obvious that someone was holding the camera. It never pays to cheat!
