Woman sells cheating husband's stuff
A Canadian woman got her own back on her cheating husband - by holding a yard sale to sell his most prized possessions while he was away on a dirty weekend.
She advertised the sale, in White Rock, Vancouver, on free ad site Craigslist, reports the Times Colonist.
"Husband left us for a piece of trash, selling everything while he is gone this weekend with his floozie," posted the woman who did not want to be named.
Items up for grabs included the husband's favourite red leather reclining chair and "lots of tools he didn't have a clue how to use".
The woman's ad continued: "I want the house empty on Monday when he returns because that will be a shock for him to see.
"Don't come too early (like he did) because I will be thoroughly enjoying some wine with my girlfriends this evening as we clean out all this stuff and likely be nursing hangovers in the morning. So please speak softly to the ladies wearing the sunglasses."
The ad discouraged clothes-buyers, "as we will have already burned those in the driveway," but it did offer to let visitors see the pile of ashes.

what do you think?
Simple theft. It's illegal to sell someone else's possessions. It's kind of funny when someone tries to play karma, and it bites them back. She'll be much worse off now!
Hmmmm that coming from a man. I wander,have you by any chance had your things sold or ruined lol
It's joint matrimonial property. As long as they are married she can sell it all with impunity.
FAB! all those who have experienced the loss of a partner in this manner will be cheering now!
My wife is now walking about with a notebook in her hand. I'm concerned!
We like to keep u men on your toes.you will be ok if u havnt done anything.but just incase dont buy anything new lol
Now I just wonder what U've done 2 B So concerned about?
This story is so old - I found a version of it in an English teacher's book (Cambridge University Press) published in the 1990s.
That's probably where this one got the idea from Leslie.
This is funny.given me ideas although i found a much better way to get revenge on my ex ;-)
Oh do tell!
Im afraid i cant say but he wasnt happy with his brother ;-) lol
I'm ok there then. My other half doesn't particularly like my brother.
I must add that we had been split for 2 years after he had a 9 month affair with my sister lol revenge is a dish best served cold
I guess she will be paying alimony to him after the divorce.
Really thought Ur Columnist would know how to spell Own Profession!!! "She advertised the sale, in White Rock, Vancouver, on free ad site Craigslist, reports the Times Colonist." wish the lady all the best avoiding court actions.
It's the paper - The Times Colonist - though I did check, to make sure! x
Any disgruntled wives thinking of doing the same let me know if your selling his fishing gear. Could be in the market for it at the right price.!!
Ha ha ha - I love the tone of her post - "Don't come too early (like he did)" is particularly amusing! A nice, subtle putdown! The flippant comment about the clothes burning also tickled me. Anyone disrespecting their husband or wife like that deserves a bit of a shock on returning home.
