To the husband in the following story, I give an A for effort, a B+ for originality, and a D- for basic human decency.
It all begins with a post to Apple’s support forum, where poor Susan has discovered a very disturbing glitch on her husband’s iPhone:
Please help! I took my husband’s i-phone and found a raunchy picture of him attached to an e-mail to a woman in his sent e-mail file (a Yahoo account). When I approached him about this (I think that he is cheating on me) he admitted that he took the picture but says that he never sent it to anyone. He claims that he went to the Genius Bar at the local Apple store and they told him that it is an i-phone glitch: that photos sometimes automatically attach themselves to an e-mail address and appear in the sent folder, even though no e-mail was ever sent. Has anyone ever heard of this happening? The future of my marriage depends on this answer!
Other users responded, helpfully pointing out that A) photographs do not magically attach themselves to outgoing emails (no matter now raunchy), and B) her husband is a lying scumbag and probably cheating on her.
But no! It turns out that such a glitch does exist, at least according to two new users, one of whom kindly suggests that Susan “ignore any of the ‘troll’ answers you’re getting causing you grief” and points her to the definition of “troll” at Urban Dictionary.
Nice try, but other popped up to immediately accuse the two newcomers of being either A) Susan’s husband, or B) other cheating husbands making an attempt at scumbag solidarity.
For the curious, Susan’s description of the image in question was that it was a “close-up… of maximum pleasure” (ellipses provided for your G-Rated workplace needs). She also added that her attorney is working on the divorce complaint, so there may just be a happy ending after all.
And in case anyone was still concerned about the “glitch,” a former Mac Genius gave his official diagnosis: “My professional opinion is that YOUR HUSBAND IS HAVING AN AFFAIR.”
