A man in Colombia found himself in a pretty awkward scenario when he was hired to drive his wife and her lover to a nearby hotel to continue their affair.
The woman, Yeimy, and her lover, Jesús Barrios, had been seeing each other behind Yeimy’s husband’s back for over a year according to the Colombian newspaper El Espectador. The pair met up and, after deciding to relocate to a motel for more privacy, ordered an Uber.
There was just one problem: Yeimy’s husband hadn’t told her that he was borrowing his friend’s car and moonlighting as an Uber driver for some extra cash.

Since their phones said they would be picked up in an unfamiliar car by a man named “Leonardo,” Yeimy and Jesús saw no need to worry. It wasn’t until all three were inside the vehicle that husband and wife recognized each other and pieced together what was happening.

It’s somewhat uncertain what happened after that.
Some Colombian news outlets reported that “the three exited the vehicle and the men began to fight on the street, as Yeimy tried to intervene.” Others say “the wife and her lover simply fled the vehicle to escape her husband’s anger.”

One thing is certain: Yeimy and her lover would have never been caught if her husband hadn’t broken Uber’s rule concerning driver identities.
“We will deactivate your account for activities such as: providing Uber with inaccurate information; allowing someone else to use your account; and taking a trip using an unapproved vehicle.”
I thought Uber said this couldn’t happen, using another drivers log in details. Not as safe as they make out, obviously.

Even if you aren’t being literally driven by your husband, Lyn Ayrton, an attorney in the United Kingdom, told The Daily Mail that Uber can make affairs incredibly easy to prove.
“The fact that the Uber app stores location data and times can make it tough for someone who is cheating to explain their movements…”
“Cheating partners should be aware that technology is increasingly helping to expose affairs and alert otherwise unsuspecting spouses that something is amiss with their relationship.”
The last part of this post is what really gets me.
“Lawyers have previously cautioned cheating spouses, pointing out that Uber keeps records of all their movements with the app.”
So instead of that how about caution cheating spouses to – not cheat –https://t.co/nECCjsWNx9

Twitter didn’t have a lot of sympathy for Yeimy.
What a small ? ????
