31 years before a silly misunderstanding created a big mess in this couple’s life which they now hysterically laugh at. Hope you don’t go through this confusion. (Thanks Audrey for sharing this story with us through our page).
My husband’s affair started shortly after we got married. We lived in an apartment complex and all the mailboxes were in the lobby area. I checked the mail while he was at work (like I always did). I opened a card, not paying attention to who it was addressed to. But the front of the card read, “I miss you in the morning, I miss you in the evening…” and the inside of the card read, “…but I especially miss you at night!” And there was a drawing of a woman in bed wearing a negligée. And it was signed, “I miss you and love you” with a woman’s name.
So I looked at the envelope and it was addressed to my husband. We had only been married 3 months. So I immediately gathered all of his items and threw them into the hallway. He came home and tried to come into the door but I had the chain lock on it. He was like, “what the hell is going on?” I said, “your girlfriend ***** misses you, so we’re over and you can go stay with her,” and I opened the door wide enough to throw the card and envelope into the hall.
About 15 minutes later, there is a knock at my door. It’s my next-door neighbor. I had seen him around but we hadn’t made formal introductions yet. I opened the door and my husband is standing down the hallway. The neighbor says, “Hi my name is **** ****, you accidentally got my mail today.
MY NEIGHBOR HAD THE EXACT FIRST AND LAST NAME AS MY HUSBAND.
He said, “My wife has been out of town on a business trip, she sent the card to me.”
I said, “Bullsh*t!” and shut the door on him.
Five minutes later, there’s another knock at my door. I look to see my next door neighbor again, but this time he’s holding up his driver’s license and the card envelope. His license shows he has the exact name as my husband, and the card envelope has their apartment number on it.
At the time, it was pretty traumatic, but now, 31 years later, my husband thinks it’s absolutely hilarious.
