Nobody likes a cheater, mostly because there’s really no excuse good enough for choosing to break someone’s trust in the worst possible way instead of just breaking things off cleanly.
So @that1mum on Twitter posed the question…
What’s the funniest excuse for cheating someone has given you? I’ll go. My ex told me he cheated on me because I had a driving phobia.

…and these 12 people were told by their SO’s the “good reason,” when in reality, they only made things somehow worse.
12. This is like the Zack Morris excuse.
he didn’t blame it on me but one of his excuses for disappearing one night was he had a heart attack and was in the hospital ?

11. He was only thinking of her.

10. I mean fair is fair.
The other girl bought him a Jimmy Johns sandwich so he had to pay her back somehow ??♀️

8. The chicken or the egg?
Oh! Also, he thought I was going through his phone so he wanted to do something for me to actually find

7. Didn’t want to wake you up for…?
Because I came home in a bad mood
Because I was a state away
Because he was drunk
But my personal favorite was “I didn’t want to wake you up” ?

6. Boy, bye.
"you are too easy to love" and it scared him…I still don't understand lol.

5. What, should she write a thank you note?
When I confronted him about sleeping with my co-worker, his reply was “but she taught me so much!” ?

4. That doesn’t sound like the God I know.
I had an ex literally tell me God was telling him to cheat and that it was his destiny to do it. ?

The secondhand rage is strong for me.
