Sale of revenge after jolt

A VENGEFUL wife who caught her husband canoodling with the babysitter in the family’s Porsche has taken a public - and pricy - revenge.

A VENGEFUL wife who caught her husband canoodling with the babysitter in the family’s Porsche has taken a public - and pricy - revenge.

The unnamed Solihull woman is selling off the car, which is worth £70,000 new, for the bargain price of £2,000.

Placing a classified advert online, she explained how she had recently caught her partner cheating and decided to get even. To rub salt in the wound, she has put her husband’s valuable wine collection in the boot.

“I’d been to my mum’s but came back early ‘cos I had a bit of a fallout with her,” she wrote.

“The children were in bed. My husband wasn’t. I thought he was in the study. I went down to the kitchen and heard something in the garage.

“I thought it was a rat. It was a blooming rat alright – my husband with our babysitter. She’s barely 17! I treated her like my own daughter.”

The scorned woman went on to say that her spouse had been unfaithful several times in the past.

“Deep down, I knew he wouldn’t change – he’d done it too many times. But I went along with it for the kids, for the sanctity of a marriage, for ‘what will the neighbours think?’, for the weather, for the Burger King deal down the road.”

More than 30,000 people have looked up the advert, which was placed on the Gumtree website last week.
