A public-service reminder: If you’re going to mess around on your current girlfriend with an ex-girlfriend, try not to do it in public. But if you’re going to do it in public, try to make sure no one is photographing you. If someone is photographing you with your ex, make sure that the pictures don’t land on a popular Facebook page. And for god’s sake, don’t actually pose for a photo with the ex.
If you can’t prevent any of that from happening, your best bet is to beg the club whose Facebook page is hosting your photos—and if your pleading goes viral because of the club’s cheekiness, well, that’s the price you pay for maybe cheating on your girlfriend.
This is how one unlucky man’s story played out late one night and into the next day.

Thus far, more than 3,000 Facebook users have shared Level’s post. Considering Bolton’s population in 2011 was a robust 276,800—136,700 are women, so the percentage is slightly in favor of the naughty boyfriend—it’s likely that the man’s current girlfriend won’t find out about his slip-up.
But it’s also not out of the realm of possibility, since she probably has friends who are on Facebook and who could potentially figure out these shenanigans.
Thus, this man shouldn’t be sleeping easy any time soon—which, come to think of it, should be the minimum punishment for his infraction anyway.
