Man Goes on Date with Female Secretary not Knowing His Wife Is Sitting Behind Them

While I was hanging out with my bestie in a restaurant, suddenly my husband came in and sat next to a young, beautiful woman! He didn’t even see me there, his eyes all over her… There they were, kissing hands, laughing like there’s no tomorrow, and me? I was seething with anger!

I was about to make a scandal when my friend grabbed my arm:

“Darling, scenes are for those who’ve lost their self-respect! I’ve got a better idea to teach him a lesson!”

I took a deep breath, and tried to calm down. “What are you thinking?”, I asked.

My friend leaned in, her eyes sparkling with mischief. “Just trust me. Let’s play this smart.”

Immediately, the waitress came up and asked us what was bothering us. I pointed to the table where my husband and the girl were sitting and said, “Do you know that couple over there?”

The waitress’ answer threw me off. “They’ve been coming here for the past few weeks,” she said, her voice laced with pity. “Is everything alright?”

My world seemed to crumble. Weeks? He had been seeing this woman for weeks? My blood boiled, but my friend squeezed my hand.

“Okay,” she said to the waitress, “Here’s what we need you to do. Bring us two glasses of your finest champagne, and then bring the bill to that table,” she pointed to where my husband and the woman sat.

Sensing the gravity of the situation, the waitress hesitated but nodded.

Some minutes later, the champagne arrived. My friend raised her glass. “To dignity and clever plans,” she toasted.

We sipped our champagne and watched as the waitress walked over to my husband’s table, bill in hand. The confusion on his face when he saw the bill was almost satisfying. He looked around, finally spotting me. His face turned pale.

I stood up and walked over to their table, my friend right behind me. “Hi there,” I said, trying to keep my voice steady. “Enjoying your evening?”

My husband stammered, “W-what are you doing here?”

“Oh, just having a lovely dinner with my friend,” I replied, looking at the young woman next to him. She looked uncomfortable, realizing the gravity of the situation.

My friend stepped in with the cold and firm voice. “You know, scenes are for those who’ve lost their self-respect, so we decided to handle this with class. Enjoy your meal, it’s on you,” she said, pointing to the bill.

I turned to leave, but I looked at my husband one last time. “Consider this the end of us. I deserve better than a man who doesn’t value his vows.”

After that, I walked out of the restaurant, my friend by my side, feeling a strange mix of heartbreak and empowerment. The evening air was cool against my flushed cheeks, and for the first time in a long time, I felt a sense of clarity. I didn’t need to make a scene to reclaim my dignity. I had already won by walking away.
