At an airport bar, it’s normal to overhear people talking to strangers about their travel plans. It’s rarer to hear a conversation about two women about to confront their husbands on a surprise cross-country trip. It’s especially rarer when the two husbands are sleeping with each other.
But one woman eavesdropped on a conversation that sounded just like a movie plot, and she live-tweeted it.
There are two women next to me at the airport bar who are flying cross-country to ambush their husbands they think are sleeping together.— BJ Colangelo (@bjcolangelo) October 31, 2017
The dialogue between the two women was amazing.
The women have never met until this moment. "Hopefully I'll gain a sister in you if I lose my husband."— BJ Colangelo (@bjcolangelo) October 31, 2017
One of the women has an extreme couponer's amount of gum in her purse. "You can't yell at someone with bad breath. My dad taught me that."— BJ Colangelo (@bjcolangelo) October 31, 2017
They started boozing.
They've ordered shots. Based on their faces, one woman is a seasoned pro. The other has never had a shot in her entire life.— BJ Colangelo (@bjcolangelo) October 31, 2017
I've never seen a 50+ year old white lady snap gum with this much vigor. Shot lady: "My daughter's boyfriend thought my husband was gay."— BJ Colangelo (@bjcolangelo) October 31, 2017
"I thought he was an asshole. I guess he's just clairvoyant."— BJ Colangelo (@bjcolangelo) October 31, 2017
She ordered another round.
The author of the tweets pointed out that the women’s situation sounded a lot like the plot of the Netflix show Grace and Frankie, in which two women become friends after their husbands fall in love with each other.
Gum Lady: "At least my husband's boyfriend has good taste in women." Shot Lady: "Yea. You're pretty okay too." THIS IS 100% GRACE & FRANKIE.— BJ Colangelo (@bjcolangelo) October 31, 2017
Turns out, they’ve seen it.
Shot Lady: "There's a Netflix show about this." SHE SAID IT! SHE FUCKING SAID IT. GUM LADY HAS NEVER SEEN IT. HOLY FUCKING SHIT.— BJ Colangelo (@bjcolangelo) October 31, 2017
The whole thing ended on a cliffhanger.
Shot Lady: "We can do this." Gum Lady: "You're right. We can." Shot lady pounded something dark. They have left me.— BJ Colangelo (@bjcolangelo) October 31, 2017
If your names are Jeffrey and and Richard and you're on a "business trip" in Chicago…your wives are coming for you. And they've bonded.— BJ Colangelo (@bjcolangelo) October 31, 2017
The internet doesn’t know what happened once the women landed in Chicago and confronted their husbands, but it loves this story.
