Sup Travellers?! There's this product on Amazon called the Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat. It's been selling really well and it's obvious that the reviews play a part in its sales. There are way too many reviews but one review in particular has been all the rave online and it's about how one guy used the product to get back at his ex-wife without her even knowing.

Prior to the divorce, the man installed the WiFi-enabled thermostat in their home in order to save some money on the electricity bill. 

When the reviewer was kicked out of his home, his wife had her new boyfriend, Carl, move in. 

Here are two excerpts from the review:

"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."

Then, his wife left him, and he sought his silent revenge:

"Since this past Ohio winter has been so cold I've been messing with the temp while the new love birds are sleeping. 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 man's revenge is pretty evil if you ask me but also BRILLIANT!!! I'm sure that his wife --- ahem --- ex-wife will find out about it eventually but until then she's going to be in all kinds of confusion. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
