If you wanna cheat on your significant other, go right ahead. Just know, you're going to get caught. Your wife, partner, boyfriend, fiancée, whatever will eventually see that suspicious text or Instagram DM, or... restaurant review.
Yes, you read the latter right. On November 27, a DC-based woman wrote Washington Post critic Tom Sietsema during his weekly live chat column "Ask Tom" to thank him for exposing her philandering spouse.
"Well Tom your latest review is accompanied by a picture of my husband dining with a woman who isn't me!" she wrote. "Once confronted with photographic evidence, he confessed to having an ongoing affair. Just thought you'd be amused to hear of your part in the drama. This Thanksgiving I'm grateful to you for exposing a cheat!"
Sietsema was rightfully shocked. "Please, please, please tell me this is a crank post," he asked, adding "I'd hate to learn otherwise. I file two reviews a week, for Food and the Magazine, so I'm not sure which restaurant this is."
He followed up the drama with an online warning: be faithful or get caught. Fans ran with the response, joking, "service journalism, brotherman and "Snitches get dishes." Ah, food humor!
