A man took to Amazon recently to review the Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat, and in his review, he explained how he used the product to get back at his wife after she left him for another man. In the first part of his review, he explained how his wife loved extravagance and always wanted nice things.
“In my attempt to try and save whatever I could so the princess could have her nice things I bought this Honeywell Wi-Fi enabled device so I could adjust the HVAC while we were away piling up massive amounts of debt on Mickey Mouse watches,” the reviewer wrote. “I thought we could save a few bucks by keeping the temp cool in the winter and warm in the summer. The device was easy to install. I did not have the “blue” connector so I had to re-purpose the green one – this required an adjustment to the actual HVAC unit in our home. There are plenty of videos on YouTube to demonstrate how to do this. Within an hour I was up and running.”
The reviewer went on to explain how his wife eventually dropped a bomb on him and how he was able to use the product to get back at her.
“The device works flawlessly. You can adjust the temp from anywhere you have a Wi-Fi or cellular signal. Little did I know that my ex had found someone that had a bit more money than I did and decided to make other travel plans. Those plans included her no longer being my wife and finding a new travel partner (Carl, a banker). She took the house, the dog and a good chunk of my 401k, but didn’t mess with the wireless access point or the Wi-Fi enabled Honeywell thermostat.
“Since this past Ohio winter has been so cold I’ve been messing with the temp while the new love birds are sleeping,” the reviewer said. “Doesn’t everyone want to wake up at 7 AM to a 40 degree house? When they are away on their weekend getaways, I crank the heat up to 80 degrees and back down to 40 before they arrive home. I can only imagine what their electricity bills might be. It makes me smile. I know this won’t last forever, but I can’t help but smile every time I log in and see that it still works. I also can’t wait for warmer weather when I can crank the heat up to 80 degrees while the love birds are sleeping. After all, who doesn’t want to wake up to an 80 degree home in the middle of June?”
The user’s review has since gone viral, and after it was posted on Reddit, people expressed their support for the husband and his attempt at revenge.
