Have you ever been wronged so badly, you didn”t think you”d survive?

We have some good news for you. Sometimes things just work out for the good guy. This shows that, maybe, karma is real, and things sometimes do work out in the end. And we absolutely love reading about it. An Amazon.com reviewer wrote about how he put to use a wi-fi thermostat in order to set things right.

And get some revenge.

“My former wife loves to take expensive vacations. We live in Ohio, which doesnt exactly have extravagant places to see unless you like to watch grass growing or interstate construction. While we make OK money, Im convinced she felt the need to single handedly improve the US economy by taking elaborate vacations: Broadway shows in New York City, gambling in Las Vegas, Spas in Arizona, sightseeing in San Francisco. The airlines know me so well they ask about my dog when I call to make reservations. His name is Fred.”

“In my attempt to try and save whatever I could so the princess could have her nice things I bought this Honeywell Wi-Fi enabled device so I could adjust the HVAC while we were away piling up massive amounts of debt on Mickey Mouse watches. I thought we could save a few bucks by keeping the temp cool in the winter and warm in the summer. The device was easy to install. I did not have the blue connector so I had to re-purpose the green one – this required an adjustment to the actual HVAC unit in our home. There are plenty of videos on Youtube to demonstrate how to do this. Within an hour I was up and running.”

“The device works flawlessly. You can adjust the temp from anywhere you have a Wi-Fi or cellular signal. Little did I know that my ex had found someone that had a bit more money than I did and decided to make other travel plans. Those plans included her no longer being my wife and finding a new travel partner (Carl, a banker). She took the house, the dog and a good chunk of my 401k, but didnt mess with the wireless access point or the Wi-Fi enabled Honeywell thermostat.”

“Since this past Ohio winter has been so cold Ive been messing with the temp while the new love birds are sleeping. Doesnt everyone want to wake up at 7 AM to a 40 degree house? When they are away on their weekend getaways, I crank the heat up to 80 degrees and back down to 40 before they arrive home. I can only imagine what their electricity bills might be. It makes me smile. I know this wont last forever, but I cant help but smile every time I log in and see that it still works. I also cant wait for warmer weather when I can crank the heat up to 80 degrees while the love birds are sleeping. After all, who doesnt want to wake up to an 80 degree home in the middle of June?”

This Amazon user is a hero.

While somewhat sadistic, this is the kind of story everyone likes hearing about. Stories with nice portion of sweet, sweet revenge.
