Revenge signs to get back on cheating partners


There are plenty of songs that deal with broken hearts and being cheated on. In fact, Taylor Swift has pretty much made a career out of it. However, what do you do when listening to Swifty just doesn't cut it for mending your life?

Well, there are some rather inventive people out there, who have taken revenge on a cheating partner to a new level. Behold, six acts of scorned lovers who have taken justice into their own hands.

The one with the fliers and the lamppost

A scorned husband posted this raunchy picture of his wife in her underwear all over their local town after the relationship ended and he'd discovered she's been having an affair. Ian Cuthbert, 46, posted fliers on a school noticeboard, trees and lamppost including his estranged wife, Alison Kidd. That caption read: 'Lock Up Your Husbands. Married and committing adultery within days'.


The one with Wrestlemania 29 and a pink t-shirt

Despite the fact that this woman doesn't look particularly angry, she let her sign do all the talking for her. Dressed in a large pink t-shirt, the woman brought a sign drawing attention to her cheating other half and his new girlfriend to Wrestlemania 29 and let everyone know where her unfaithful husband was sitting. The sign read: "My cheatin' husband's in 129, row 31, seat 7-8 (with the homewrecker!)."


The one with the 22-year-old student

An Oregon woman named Elle Zober put her house up for sale after her husband of 10 years, also the father of her two children, cheated on her with a 22-year-old college student. Elle found out, divorced him, and is advertising his adultery, along with the property, on a sign in the front yard. The inventive post read: "Husband left us for a 22 year old … House for sale by scorned, slightly bitter, newly single owner."


The one with Craigslist

A woman sold her husband's possessions at a sale while he was away for the weekend with his new girlfriend. As part of an advert on Craigslist, "I want the house empty on Monday when he returns because that will be a shock for him to see". She also added she was "Selling everything and moving house after 10 years of marriage."


The one with the worker from Silicon Valley

A woman who goes by the name VeeVee and who is (or rather 'was') married to a Silicon Valley worker named Scott Jones, defaced his car when she found out he was having an affair with a coworker.


The one with the neighbour

This one requires little explanation.
