Soldier returns home early to surprise wife
"I had actually come home a week earlier than I was supposed to from the Air Force (this was a good 15 years ago), and figured I'd surprise her since she'd always talk about how much she misses me, would always send me pictures of her in the mail and write these long letters talking about our future together. Naturally, I assumed she would be more than excited to see me walk in the door a week early. I pulled up to the house and figured she was home because her car was there, so I was as quiet as possible. Even parked my car down the street a little so she didn't see me pull up and ruin the surprise. I quietly put the key in the lock and slowly twisted... opened the door and the living room was dark. I thought maybe she got picked up by some friends and went out somewhere. Oh well, even better! I'll set up our room by going to get some flowers and making everything look all romantic and irresistible (hey it's been a few months, I was a bit pent up at that point). I start walking towards the bedroom, and I hear this rhythmic squeaking noise followed by a deep grunt. My instinct reaction was someone broke in and is trying to rip something off the wall, so I went into ass kicking mode until a few seconds later I heard a high pitched moan of a female. Yeah... I recognized that sound pretty well, and knew what was happening. Being military, I knew the worst possible thing I could do was anything violent, so I wanted to fuck up whatever 'moment' they were having. I walked towards the room very quietly while they went at it... of course they didn't hear me because they were far too 'deep' in their actions. Luckily the door was halfway open so I got down and started crawling towards the bed out of their line of sight, slithered over to the edge of the bed they were closest to and started slowly inching my head up the side until just my eyes were above the edge. It took her a good minute (she was on the bottom) before she looked over and saw angry eyes staring at her. She freaked out so bad that she kicked the dude in the face and he fell off the bed and hit his head on the wall, she screamed louder than I've heard anyone scream in my life and bounced off the bed in a flailing, sweaty mess and I heard her ass hit the ground with a satisfying thud. I stood up and the guy was in a heap on the floor scared shitless at this dude in full military garb standing over him with crazy eyes. She finally realized who it was and started bawling her eyes out saying 'i'm so sorry! I was lonely!' blah blah blah... who cares. I started laughing hysterically and all I said was 'Well dude, she's your problem now. Hope you don't mind herpes'. Walked out and blocked her from my life. Only to go on and date someone else who made my life miserable for the next 12 years. I really know how to pick 'em."
Worst lunch break ever
"Some years ago, I was sharing a house with my girlfriend and another female roommate. I decided to go home for lunch, which was out of the ordinary for me. Got home, and could hear sex from the roommates room. Tiptoed back to the kitchen, fixed a sandwich, cut it in half, and my roommate walked in the front door. We look at each other and a sad, sad frown overtakes her face. Sandwich still in hand, I walk into the roommate's bedroom, and my girlfriend is straddling some guy. They are both frozen with fear. I throw the sandwich halves at my ex, both hitting her square in the face. She runs over and starts hitting me. The guy escapes through a window - he was wearing only a t-shirt. After about 10 minutes listening to her sob and blame everything on me, we hear sirens. Apparently, a man with no pants had pulled out into fast moving traffic and caused a huge accident."
Tribute to the troops?
"She was at a party for a guy we knew that was killed in Afghanistan (I couldn't make it because of work). I got out of work around midnight, and gave her a call to see how things were going. I can immediately tell that she's hammered, which wasn't a problem. She said she had just gotten home (she lived two doors down from where the party was) but then I heard a guy's voice in the background. 'Who is that?' I asked her before she promptly hung up. So, I called again, and a guy picks the up the phone, 'She doesn't want to talk to you, motherf*cker- so suck my d*ck!' Oh... so he wants to talk to me like that? I don't think so. So I rushed over to her house and walked in. I found them in her bed in the dark and flipped on the lights. She started crying and the guy stood up... it was the brother of the kid that just got killed. I need to add that, at the time, I was 19 years old and pretty scrappy. At this point in my life I had been boxing on and off for about three years, and all I wanted to do was utterly demolish this guy... but I didn't. I knew that this guy had just lost his brother and was going through a lot. The last thing he needs is me beating his a**. So here I am with a look of disbelief, and he turns to me and says, 'F*ck you, b*tch. Don't say a single word to me or I'll kill you.' Are. You. Kidding. Me. Needless to say, I snapped. I cracked him in the jaw with a quick jab, then grabbed him by the throat and squeezed. As he stood there, bleeding and fighting for air, I pulled him close and whispered in his ear, 'Your brother was a great man, it should have been you that got killed over there and not him.' I then let him go and walked out. I never said a word to her again."
Guy breaks the other guy's arm; drives him to the hospital
"I walked in on her, got pissed, broke his arm in two places, and kicked her out. Then I drove him to the hospital. After they put a cast on him, we went back to my place, drank beer, and watched the game. To this day he's one of my best damn friends."
Vet gets a surprise after deployment
"Came home from deployment, ready to see my girl. Flight from Kyrgyzstan had been delayed, so my arrival time was a surprise. Been dating for 3 years. Walk in my home after taking note of the strange car in the driveway. As soon as I am up the stairs I can hear her moaning. For some reason my initial thought was 'Oh, she's masturbating'. I'm excited because I havent seen a woman in months. Walk in our bedroom and find some out of shape f*ckhead drilling my girl. She catches me out of the corner of her eye, we make eye contact, I sprint for my pistol I kept in the nightstand. He falls over himself right out of my bed, she screams. I scream "What the F*CK?!" and start waving my pistol in both of their faces. HE starts crying, she's screaming. I break down and start sobbing like a little b*tch. I'm barely getting out a constant repeat of "how could you do this" and "I f*cking loved you". She just keeps saying she's sorry, he's tucked in the corner hugging his knees. I can't control my heart. Worst pain I've ever felt. So of course, I turn the gun to my own head, and start crying "would this be better?" She begs me to calm down, I tell her to shut the f*ck up. The tears stop, I stop shaking. I tell her to get the f*ck out. They both dash out of my house and drive off with little next to sheets for clothing. I called up a friend and he came over and took me to the psych ward at the military hospital. This is 2 years ago. I still miss her, I still love her, and I just wish I had the balls to pull the trigger. Haven't been with anyone since. Yay life!"
Man walks in on girlfriend cheating on him; cracks up
"Went to her apartment. Saw her f*cking some guy I'd never seen before. Before I can say anything, she says, 'It isn't what it looks like!' I cracked up - who the hell even says that when they're caught cheating? While I'm laughing, I manage to ask her what it is, if it's not what it looks like. After a little bit where she tries to come up with an excuse, I tell her we're through and walk out. Weirdest five minutes of that year."
Man walks in on his girlfriend with her ex-husband; collapses
"I broke. I literally felt something in me die. This was five years ago, and only in the last eight, nine months have I felt better about it. I walked into my apartment, and her and her ex-husband were in my bed. which was a huge 'f*ck you!' to me, because they both had their own places. So, I walk in, see them, grab him by the throat (I know, I know), drag him outside, and throw him into the parking lot. I'm a big dude, I'm 6'8", 220lbs. So I throw him into the parking lot, and she's yelling at me, 'PLEASE DON'T KILL HIM'... I just wanted him out of my house. I wasn't going to hurt or kill the guy. She's running around, picking up her things, his things, and shouting excuses at me. 'Oh, it was just a one time thing... We were bored and it was a mistake... We were drinking this morning, and this was stupid.' I just looked at her and said, 'Don't ever speak to me again. You f*cking disgust me.' Then I fell onto my couch and cried. he was standing there, watching me, and she tried to walk over and hug me, because now she was crying too. I pushed her away from me. I cried non-stop for the rest of the day. Fell into a deep, deep, depression, started doing painkillers, drinking, pretty much every drug I could get my hands on. It hurt so bad, mentally, that it was physically crippling. The hardest part wasn't even breaking up with her, it was not talking to her daughter, who was going to be my step daughter. We went everywhere together. I took her to preschool, we'd go to the mall every Friday and get ice cream, I'd buy her some toys or clothes, whatever struck my eye. I've since moved to a different state, got a good job, and got my life back together. I have an AMAZING girlfriend. She looks at me with love, and I look at her, and I see hope in her eyes. It took YEARS, but things finally actually turned around."
Woman asks friend to babysit to go cheat with her boyfriend
"My 'friend' asked me to babysit her baby cause she had some errands to run (baby was 11 months old). I have her kid with me all day, kid pukes all over her clothes, my friend had left me the key to her house in case I needed anything for the baby. So I go to the house, open the door, and find my friend riding my boyfriend. So basically, she had me watch her kid so she could f*ck my boyfriend. I would like to say I was the bigger person, but I put the baby in its crib and smacked the sh*t out of both of them and left."
