Blatantly stealing this from a friends Facebook post.

Have you read Oh Brian, part 1? If not, go read that first for the back story on Brain. Brian thinks I am someone else. Someone he is cheating on his wife with.
Brian showed back up yesterday.
Then, from another number Brian received this text.
At this point I decided enough was enough.
His wife has a pretty uncommon spelling for her name so, using Facebook, we searched for her name in the town we narrowed the phone number down to. There were only 4 people matching her name in that town. Since he had mentioned that he was on leave, it was easy to figure he was military. Only one of the girls was married to a “Brain” and he was in the military. Bingo. We have enough friends in that branch of the military to have the ability to take the dates he mentioned for leave and tie it to a particular command schedule. Then we just made a few inquiries with that command and verified that he was in that division.
Contact was made with Brian’s upper command. Message from the upper food chain regarding Brian. “I am a going to crush this guy tomorrow. This is not going to end well for him.”
Perhaps next time he will verify who he is texting when he cheats on his wife. He hopefully has also learned a valuable lesson. No matter if I know you personally or not, military wives have each others back.
Also….don’t make me angry. You won’t like me angry.
A few days ago I got a random text. It was from “Brian”. Once I made sure I had no idea who “Brian” was, I thought I would have some fun with him. Maybe something like “Dude..they know!” or “Tell your mom it wasn’t me who pee’d on the car!”.
I ended up sending a “K. Talk later.” while Jimmy and I thought about what we could send if “Brian” texted again.
Last night, “Brain” showed up again. I handed the phone to my husband because he had an idea of what to say. He was going to go with “stolen goods-jail time” line. “Brain” had other ideas.
Brian, you sir, are a douchecanoe.
