Not such a good detective after all!

My husband was working late and I was bored--so what better time to check the cell phone bill as I do from time to time. Yes, even after all this time I still get a funny feeling and go on a hunt--which, who knows, I may do for life unfortunately. So, checking through and all of a sudden I see this sickeningly familiar pattern with the a long distance number--going on for the last 2 months. The number was the 2nd most called number behind mine. Calls from the number were coming in extremely early in the morning while I was still asleep and he called it always right after talking to me or right before--just like he did before when he was cheating. My stomach flipped and I started shaking uncontrollably! Thoughts raced through my head--all of the things I was going to say and do to him to ruin his life. How could he do this to me again--I screamed that out loud! He got home and I was barely able to get words out--I showed him the number and the cell phone bill "evidence". He got a confused look on his face and said, "Honey--it's the contractor that has been doing our backyard renovations for the last 2 months--look at your phone he calls you too!" I looked at my phone and there was the number glaring out from my call log. Ughh, never been so happy and relieved to be a crappy detective!

I did that too and realized it was my other line at work!! The other number on phone bill was me.

OMG, that's hilarious. Kind of...

Glad he took it so well.

BTDT!!! Isn't the relief you feel incredible!!! It's worth feeling like a boob for getting it wrong!

I'm glad your story has a happy ending!

<raises hand sheepishly>

I actually paid $9.95 to some search engine to find out that a number on my H's phone was the call phone from work. I PAID to find out it was me that he was talking to.

I haven't done this but I wanted to say I'm thrilled for you with the way he took it!

Omg - Love ...I was so scared reading your post - you are on my timeline and I have been rooting for you through our journey! I thought you were gonna say you had another dday! Please don't scare me like that ever again! Lol

BTW -I still check from time to time - and there is nothing to be seen or found! But as you know, there are always other methods of contact...I shudder to think that - but it is true! Sad....

So funny! Glad it worked out. Hope it gave you both a laugh!!!

It was pretty funny in the end and I like to refer to it as "affair humor"...only peeps like us can truly relate!

@Dance--thanks honey--you will always be one of my favs--I root for you also. We are in a good place and doing well my friend--hugs
