- When a woman and her children discovered her boyfriend was cheating on her, they were devastated.
- The man had a lot of issues, but the woman stood by him through everything.
- While the woman tried her best to move on, her children decided to seek revenge on her behalf.
A man shared his story on how he sought revenge against his stepfather, who broke his mom’s heart and wasted her time for years. People on Reddit couldn’t help but react to the exciting story, applauding him for his bravery.
When the man’s parents split up, he moved in with his mother. Shortly after the divorce was finalized, his mom introduced him to her new boyfriend, Chris. Chris was a former inmate imprisoned for driving under the influence, and the man’s mother worked as a correctional officer at their local county jail.
This should have been the first red flag, but seeing that Chris made his mother happy, he didn’t push the subject and supported their relationship. The man and his two siblings got along well with their mom’s boyfriend.
Everything was going well for the family, and they’d been accustomed to calling the man their stepfather. In 2017, during one of his routine probationary checks at the courthouse, the FBI caught up with Chris.
It turned out that his family in Texas was implicated in several crimes, and due to him being in a vehicle while one of the crimes was ongoing, he needed to be arrested. He subsequently agreed to testify against his family in exchange for a reduced sentence.
Throughout Chris’s time in Texas, the man’s mom was devastated. They constantly called each other for over a year and discussed getting married once he was out.
Chris’s Behavior Turned Bad When He Returned from Texas
When he returned, things didn’t turn out as expected. While he was allowed to go back to his job at a local franchise, he started to drink heavily. Chris was no stranger to drinking, given his previous DUI charge, but he drank about 12 beers a day. Whenever he was drunk, his mouth was incredibly foul.
While he never got physical with the man’s mother, his words were as sharp as a knife. The man’s mom tried to understand Chris’s situation and tolerated the drinking for a couple of years because it was likely due to stress.
However, one night, the woman was tired of her boyfriend’s behavior. When Chris came home drunk one night, she kicked him out, and he ended up living with a friend.
The following morning, they packed his essentials so he didn’t need to enter the house again. It was after then that the family received a knock on the door. It was Chris’s co-worker, Betty. Betty said that she had something important to share.
After sitting the man’s mother down, Betty revealed that Chris was cheating on the mom with one of their co-workers, Darla. They’d carry out indecent acts in the workplace, and Betty caught them once.
Chris confronted Betty and said that if she ever told the man’s mom and her family, he’d fire her as the store manager. While that was already a lot to take in, she had a cherry to go on top of the cake: Darla was pregnant.
The man’s mom was furious. Rather than packing a few of Chris’s essentials, she asked her children to pack up all his things and dump them outside.
Chris Said He Was Happy Darla Was Pregnant
She confronted Chris about what happened, and he confessed to the affair. However, what he said next hurt the man’s mom immensely. He said that he was happy Darla was pregnant because then he’d finally have kids.
He didn’t apologize for his actions, and the man’s mom arranged for Chris to take his things from the alley with an officer present. While that would have been the end of the story, the children saw how affected their mom was with the breakup. She wanted to move on, but her kids wanted revenge.
They called the man’s boss to report the indecency happening around the workplace. Ultimately, the boss fired Chris from his position and banned him from the other branches around the area, which he also owned.
Chris moved in with Darla and started working in another franchise in that area. The kids called the owner in that location as well, and while it took a while, he ended up losing the job.
One day, Chris drove around the neighborhood, stalking the man’s mom and the rest of the family. He didn’t have a driver’s license due to his previous DUI.
The man called the cops and informed them of Darla’s vehicle being in the neighborhood and shared they had reason to believe Chris was driving it without a license. True enough, cops pulled over beside the car a couple of weeks later, and Chris was behind the wheel.
He served jail time again for driving without a license and while intoxicated. Police also found several guns around the house he was living in. As he was a felon, he wasn’t allowed to own weapons. This stacked up his jail time, and by the time he was released, Darla cut ties with him.
The man concluded that Chris struggled with trying to fight child support payments, which Darla sued him for. The man’s mom has since moved on with a man who deeply cares about his mom.
Internet users applauded the children for their fast thinking and for having their mom’s back. If you were in their shoes, would you have done the same thing for your mother?
