Thank you for sharing that you noticed it, it's been bothering me for months!
It's just so inappropriate. I have been meaning to write the company a letter and now I will. I have been with that company since I was 16 and am just disgusted that anyone would find that entertaining.
I am sorry it was a trigger for you. Just the theme of infidelity is a trigger for me.

Someone posted it on Facebook awhile ago and you would not believe how many people wrote "Brilliant! I love that commercial!" I have a feeling they have never experienced that in real life.

I found my XH laying on our bed on the phone on a Saturday night in 1994 when he thought I was "safe" exercising in the basement. I heard him whispering in the bedroom behind a closed door and picked up the phone in the kitchen and heard a woman's voice, then his, I said "Who is this?" and she hung up. That was the beginning....

I hate that commercial. It's just dumb.

I HATE THAT EFFING COMMERCIAL SO MUCH.

True story... a couple of weeks ago, it came on and my dear, darling H (who is usually much more aware of things and not quite this stupid) said, "That's pretty funny. I like that commercial."

The fact that his head did not spontaneously combust from the look I gave him convinced me that I, indeed, do not have telekinetic powers. Because it really should have blown his whole head up. He said, "What?"

Really??? Really????

I said, "I'd like you to think about that for a few minutes and get back to me."

Him: "Oh."

Good Lord

Kinda like the Twix commercial from a few years ago where the husband got a suspicious text. Pausing to take a bite of his Twix gave him the time to think up a lie -- that it was someone form his work. I haven't had a Twix bar in four years.


If I want recovery, then I must allow for it to actually happen.
Is it possible that I actually do have all the truth now?

I guess I'm far enough out that the commercial doesn't bother me. My husband and I talked about it and noticed that the husband isn't the least bit defensive when she takes the phone from him. To us, she seems like a woman who's been betrayed and he seems like the clueless husband who didn't realize how suspicious his behavior appeared. We laugh about the similarities to us and also the differences.

It doesn't bother me either. I love the guy on the other end going "khakis."

Now every time I see a Jake I want to say that line. It's become an ear worm.

My mother thinks that commercial is hysterical...even though she knows I cheated. I've tried to explain to her why it's not so funny, but...

I don't recall the twix commercial - but then maybe these commercials don't stick with you if they don't hit home?

Wh wasn't around when I saw the commercial, but I'd be hard pressed not to bean him if he did anything but look remorseful!
