One of the best aspects the Sims games is being able to loosely simulate real life—but still have some wild stuff go down. Like when you accidentally drop your baby in the aquarium. Or when you get trapped in the bathtub after screwing the neighbor. Or in this guy’s case, when his ex-boyfriend became a ghost and haunted the shit out of him and his new boo.

Tumblr user v171 recounts the tale. It’s got drama. It’s got love. It’s got a daughter that was accidentally deleted and couches set on fire by vengeful specters. And, most importantly, it’s got resolution. So it’s definitely going to be adapted into a New York Times bestseller. 

Hell hath no fury like a dead ex-boyfriend.
