Technology is a beautiful thing. The boom in the tech industry has brought more privileges to our already spoiled culture than we honestly deserve, many of which can be accessed from the palm of our hands.
You can talk, face to face, with someone on another continent. You can turn on your alarm system, check the temperature of a room and open doors from work. And, apparently, you can catch your significant other stepping out on you.
This was the case with an unidentified man from Moseley, Birmingham who was caught in the wrong place at the wrong time after his soon-to-be ex-wife used GPS location tracking to catch him cheating.
Khadijah Bilal credits her intuition, the Find My iPhone app, and the £190 she gave a private eye with helping her prove her husband was being unfaithful.
“I had to prove to myself, to my family and to his family what he was doing,” Bilal told the U.K.’s Daily Mail. “I also had to have it confirmed for myself, for my own sanity.”
The man who shall remain nameless, according to the reports, was using his wife’s old phone after his had stopped functioning. Unfortunately for him, as you can guess by now, her iPhone was still connected to the Find My iPhone app.
Bilal became suspicious after her husband was growing increasingly restless at home always “going to the gym” after giving birth to their second child. His alleged refusal to spend Christmas at home was also a dead giveaway.
After the red flags, Bilal logged on to the app and tracked his movements for a solid month, properly building a case against him.
She discovered that the frequent trips to the gym were really trips to his mistresses house which was reportedly only 19 miles away from their home. He was working out alright, just not at the gym.
Once it was established that these alleged gym trips were really visits to another woman, Bilal confronted her husband.
Cheating is wrong. Cheating is lying and cowards lie, so by no stretch of the imagination am I condoning cheating.
However, if you’re practicing infidelity, at least be smart about it.
