Cheaters cheat, it's what they do.
Modern technology is wonderful and no doubt, but it can also be the bane of many a life. This story reminds me of Bonfire of the Vanities. I mean, ooops.
From today's Daily Mail.
"A text message sent to the wrong woman has put paid to a reconciliation between Shane Warne and his former wife.
The Australian cricketing legend is said to have composed a message telling a lover that "the back door is open" - then accidentally sent it to Simone Warne.
The couple divorced over a year ago but had been working hard to repair their relationship after Warne promised to end his repeated infidelity.But according to Simone, mother of his three children Brooke, ten, Jackson, eight, and Summer, five, the chances are now zero.
Warne, 38, who captains Hampshire, was relaxing at his home near Southampton when he tapped into his mobile phone: "Hey beautiful, I'm just talking to my kids, the back door's open."
Seconds later the message appeared on Simone's mobile in Melbourne. She replied saying: "You loser, you sent the message to the wrong person."
In an interview with Australia's New Idea magazine, 37-year-old Simone said: "I'm devastated. But it was the wake-up call I needed. I'd been very suspicious for some time that he was up to his old tricks.
"It broke my heart all over again, so it's over for ever now."
In 2000, Warne was stripped of the vice-captaincy of Australia when details emerged that he had been pursuing a young nurse with a series of phone calls.
Just three years later, in 2003, a married stripper came forward to claim that the pair had been involved in a three month affair together.
It was in the same year, just before the cricket World Cup, that Warne was found guilty of taking a banned substance and suspended from cricket for a year.
In 2005, whilst the bowler was preparing to tour England ahead of the Ashes, it was revealed that the star had embarked on an affair during the final stages of his marriage.
It is also claimed that he had bombarded a young secretary with text messages in June that year.
A young student then also claimed the father of three had stripped naked in front of her and begged her for sex when they met at a London hotel prior to the Ashes.
Just a year later, a tabloid newspaper published pictures of Warne in his underpants with two 25-year-old models and details of explicit text messages sent by the star."
Oh dear, once a horny old dog always a horny old dog I guess. But I would like to have seen his face when he realised his mistake. Or maybe he doesn't give a rat's arse. But why would he be trying to get back together with a woman who divorced him only to cheat on her again?
There are lots of philandering types who can't do monogomy-they claim-but is seems a pity they don't realise this before they get married.
Why do you think people cheat anyway? Is it simply because they can? Why would someone who cheats regularly want to get married in the first place? Why not just stay single and sleep around unfettered by any kind of responsibility, emotional or otherwise. Surely the whole point of getting married it to say 'I have made a commitment to you.' Why bother if what you're really saying is 'I've sorta made a commitment to you, at least until the next hot totty comes my way.'
I mean really, why bother?
