10 People reveal the craziest thing their ex did after they broke up
Our exes are our exes for a reason. I mean, why be with someone who gives you grief, or is flat-out crazy, when you could happily be single? Nearly all of us have horror stories about relationships past, where our former lovers did some seriously questionable things that either had us running for the hills, or regretting that we didn't call it quits sooner. Here, the people of Reddit have revealed 10 of the most ridiculous things that their exes did to them, and boy are they bad.
"I had a buddy who's ex, upon breaking up, raced him back to his OWN house, got there first, and then proceeded to lock herself in HIS room for several days. I don't even think she talked much while there. She would just sneak out at night time to use the bathroom. Buddy's kind-hearted, Christian parents fed her by sliding flat foods like bologna and pancakes under the door."
2. That friend is horrible!
"I was in the process of a divorce. Not yet finalised. I was divorcing because of [my ex's] cheating. There was this somewhat vague, unclear rule that if I were to have sex with her during this time it could constitute as a reconciliation. In any case, ex is still living in the apartment with me. I get home from work and she starts to seduce me. To me this seems pretty weird as she hadn't wanted to do anything sexual with me for months. I know I shouldn't do it but she stripped down to nothing and gets really physical. Basically she strips down and starts trying to push me into the bedroom and pull my clothes off. I think for a minute, contemplating what I should do. Fortunately, I decide to walk out of the apartment. When I open the door one of her friends was standing right there with a camera. The plan was to get me in the bedroom and then have this friend film us (without my knowledge) so that she could say we reconciled (using video evidence) and could possibly then be entitled to alimony."
3. This is just weird
"My ex, when I was 20, went to my parents and told them everything we did in bed. My dad later pointed out we have some of the same tastes when it comes to sex. Then it just got awkward. I'm glad I have a chill family though."
4. 10/10 for the stick
"I once broke up with a girl over the phone. At that time she was in Mexico City (working) and me in Michigan. She was living in California originally. She immediately caught the very next flight to MI and said 'You're not breaking up with me.'
"At one point she hit me with a stick.
"We only had a few dates."
"My ex reopened serveral credit cards that we had jointly but had paid off and closed before divorce, somehow she opened them back in my name and charged them to the max, then moved out of state and stopped paying her car payment. All of these things ended up getting reported to my credit years later and pretty much ruined any chance I have at decent credit for the next 7-10 years in the US. I've been divorced and lived outside the US for 8 years now and only recently found out about all these charges. I know all this can be corrected eventually but the hassle of explaining things to several credit companies and collection agencies is a major pita."
6. That escalated quickly
"Not exactly an ex, because we only went on three dates. After the 3rd date, I left to go back to London as an au-pair. The guy had his sister send me a traditional African wedding dress to my host family, and a letter stating that she was so happy for us and hoped I would visit her in Mali. I noped the f*ck out. He then had his friends and brother call me and berate me for breaking up with him, had them say I could not possibly do that because his parents had already bought the plane tickets to come see me before the wedding, and then tried to stick me with the costs for said tickets.
"I changed my cell phone number and had the host family say that I had gone back home and they had no forwarding address."
7. A+ for creativity
"I found it more hilarious than fucked up, but mine sent me a Happy Mothers Day card because she said I was the biggest mother f***er in the world."
"Ex-wife, moved out while I was at basic, took all the spoons in the kitchen. Serving spoons, tea spoons, soup spoons, even measuring spoons. Left all knives, and forks. Honestly, who does that?"
9. How irritating
"Put me on the mailing and call list for every church group she could find. For two months my phone was blowing up with calls from churches and evangelicals, they wanted money, they wanted to send me bibles and pamphlets. The ones that had my address did send me bibles and pamphlets. Took a lot of patient explaining, and occasionally some frustrated yelling to get myself removed from everything."
"This is my significant other's ex. She threw herself down a flight of stairs and called the cops to say he beat her up. She would hit herself and call the cops almost weekly, so my partner installed a GPS tracker on his car to try and prove his whereabouts during the times she was accusing him of the abuse.
The absolute worst though was probably when she told him he could come over Christmas morning to see their then 2 year old daughter open her gifts only to call the police and have him arrested in front of their daughter."
Well, there you have it. Hopefully, your ex is looking a lot better right about now...
