A Reddit user recently revealed her act of petty revenge against a cheating ex-husband – only allowing her ex-mother-in-law to see photos of their kids with her in.
She split up with her ex after he had an affair, and once he was gone, she finally began to notice all the red flags.
Abusive and Selfish
He was completely self-centered and emotionally abused her.
Well, her story of revenge starts two years after they broke up.
Cutting Off His family
For her mental health, she began unfriending his family on Facebook.
After two years of not talking to any of them, she didn’t see the point in keeping them added.
But this infuriated her ex-husband’s mother; if she were removed as a Facebook friend, she wouldn’t be able to see photos of her grandkids.
Her ex-mother-in-law wants to see what her grandkids do at both their parents’ houses.
The woman thinks this is ridiculous, as her ex-husband doesn’t let her parents see what happens at his house.
He doesn’t care about her parents, and he doesn’t do Facebook.
Sharing Family Photos
Recently she’s noticed that her ex-mother-in-law has been taking her photos and sharing them with her friends and family.
The ex-mother-in-law has thousands of friends on Facebook, many that she doesn’t even know.
She has tried talking to her ex-mother-in-law, asking her to stop sharing the photos, but she doesn’t listen.
Revenge Is Sweet
So, for her revenge, our storyteller changed her privacy settings on Facebook.
Mother Appear in All the Photos
Now, the only photos of her grandkids the ex-mother-in-law has access to are ones with their mother in.
She gets to see her grandkids, but she also has to see her husband’s ex-wife, and she doesn’t like sharing those photos.
The ex-mother-in-law hasn’t said anything to our storyteller yet, but she’s sure she is seething.
This ex-mother-in-law is the only family member on her husband’s side left on her friend list on Facebook, and their only mutual friends are her parents.
Petty but Pleasing
She’s sure her parents won’t share things with her ex-mother-in-law, especially now that she’s told them what’s happening!
She thinks it really is petty, but it feels so good.
Ex-Mother-In-Law Got What She Asked For
Amusingly, she ends her story by saying, “she can’t exactly say that she doesn’t get to see photos of the kids.”
Reddit users loved her revenge story, with many people empathizing with the woman’s position.
23slide had the top-rated comment, with over 4500 upvotes.
They advised the woman, saying, “Remember to always be in the middle of your kid’s photos, not on the edge. You know, to make removing or cropping you out next to impossible.”
Eidolons comment had over 1000 upvotes. “They said, Not hurting the kids, check. By every means, double down.”
Cut Her Out
This prompted the woman to respond, explaining, “Nope, kids have been kept well away from this. Eventually, I’ll be able to cut ex-MIL out of my life for good and then I’ll just unfriend and she sees nothing from me at all.”
Zookeeper-007 gave our storyteller some extra advice on how to increase her pettiness.
They said, “And also remember to post the ugliest pictures of you and your children. Nothing too photogenic or angelic. All the weird faces and bloopers for MIL.”
