If you are going to be sneaky and duplicitous in trying to gather evidence that your mate is cheating on you please by all means be smart about it.
Sure, most of us have at one time or other has suspected a mate of being less then faithful. We may have even rifled through their wallet or cell phone trying to find proof. No big deal. If, however, you are going to take this thing further then just some snooping then you better darn sight cover your tracks.
Case in point, many years ago my aunt was married to a rather interesting gentleman to say the least. They had their ups and downs like any couple. They’d argue and fight then make up again like everyone else.
For some strange reason my aunts husband had it in his mind that his wife was cheating. One day my aunt was putsing around the house and stumbled across a recording device. Hmmmmm. She pressed the play button and realized that her wonderful husband was recording her every phone conversation. She was livid but kept listening.
Lo and behold she came across a conversation he was having with HIS girlfriend. She listened some more and heard a few more conversations he had with his girlfriend.
Dude was so cocky and sure that he wouldn’t get caught that he was busted talking to his girlfriend using the same tapped phone he rigged to catch his wife!
Can you say dumb ass?
