A man has paid tribute to his high-tech Dyson fan for helping to alert him about the secret affair that his wife was having.

He said that if it wasn’t for his ‘kick ass fan’ that he got from his brother-in-law for Christmas, he would never have discovered that his wife was entangled in an intimate relationship with another man.

The man shared on Reddit that he was updating the filter app for the Dyson fan on his wife’s phone, when a suspicious message popped up on the screen.

“Asked wife if I could use her phone to update the app, in order to reset the change filter alert,” he wrote.

Affair Exposed

“As I was finding the app on her phone, a notification popped up. My stomach dropped immediately as I read the small tag: ‘I’ll bring the special toy’, it said.”

“My brain understood the words, but my mind just stopped functioning,” the shocked man said.

The husband decided not to tell his wife that he has seen the message and then started looking into her phone log.

Under the covers

The man managed to access his wife’s Whatsapp messages on another device and found that the illicit affair had been going on for over 18 months.

“There are at least 15,000 messages, memes, flirty pics and some x-rated ones too,” he said.

“Three nights ago, lying in bed next to me rubbing my back while I went to sleep … she messaged him and sexted him lying next to me,” he shared, appalled at his sordid discovery.

“It’s a younger man from work. He is married and has three young children. He and his wife have Facebook. I’ve met him twice. Shook his hand.

I Wish It Was A Bad Dream

“I desperately want this to be a bad dream. She’s said terrible things about me. She’s told him my insecurities. She’s told him ‘I love you.’

However, the man said that it didn’t seem that the pair had made any long term plans so he assumes that it’s a “purely sexual relationship.”

“It almost makes it better, but also makes it so much worse. Like she’s literally throwing away our life for this.

“She knows cheating is an absolute deal breaker for me.”

The End!

The scorned man has consulted a lawyer, confronted his wife and is moving forward with a divorce.

“She cried and pleaded that she could explain,” he said.

The husband said that he also contacted the other man’s wife through Facebook, and sent her a copy of all the messages he had dug up. But he handed heard back as yet.

While the husband contemplates his future, he said he has to thank Dyson for helping to uncover his wife’s betrayal.

“I again need to thank Dyson for their app,” he said.

  • I feel sorry for the man! Move on l say!


  • How awful for him to discover it that way, and to have that going on at all.


  • Everything is watching you these days….


  • Hmmm doesn’t really sound legit! Sounds like something an advertising exec dreamed up for Dyson. No woman is dumb enough to have an app for a fan (his fancy fan) installed on their favourite cheating device and then happily turn it over to be busted with! And what sort of energy does this woman have anyway – who could be bothered with two husbands?!! If this was true, then I feel sorry for the children and innocent spouses but 18 months is waaayyyy too much to forgive!


  • Wow! 18 months is a long time.
    If she wasn’t happy with him then she should’ve just dumped him and moved on.
    Seems like they were both just in a comfort zone with their relationships and having an affair was much easier than going through a messy breakup.


  • I can honestly say that I would have been very shocked if this had happened to me. My late husband never cheated on me except when it came to fishing. He was the love of my life and my soulmate.


  • OMG. There’s no way she can defend that or explain it away. 18 months. Infidelity is a dealbreaker for me. There’s no way back.


  • Nothing to do with his Dyson, but the story does draw you in!


  • Wow, how could anyone even come close to explaining that! Glad he’s able to get out now, maybe he’ll find someone more deserving!


  • Interesting story to read.


  • Poor guy, I would have done the same thing if I was him, divorce, and told the other person what was going on, I would 100% want to know if that was me. Cheating is my deal breaker.


  • He should not be checking her phone messages as it is an invasion of privacy
    Look out Dyson you may be in Court over this breach of the privacy act

    • True, I’m never in my husband’s phone and he’s never in mine, unless I’m asking him to solve a problem (as he’s handier with phones & computers than I am myself). The article says he was updating the filter app for the Dyson fan on his wife’s phone…you never know, but maybe she asked him to do this ?


  • I really detest social media – this poor man who was duped. This poor woman who wasn’t having a good relationship with her husband. If social media wasn’t around maybe they could have talked things out together.


  • 18 months !!!!! I hope he got to keep the fan.


  • She was stupid to let her husband use her phone – unless she wanted him to find out
