In a classic example of “how could they every find out it was me?”, a man called in a fake gas leak to see if his girlfriend was hiding another lover in her home. It turns out that telling your girlfriend that you are going to do this, repeatedly, and trying to break into her house just before the call comes in are not great ways to hide your soon-to-be attempted break-in. Sadly the story does not tell if the man was correct in assuming that his girlfriend had someone in there.
Strangely this reminds me of a story from one of Kevin Smith’s Podcasts when he was talking about Jason Mewes (Jay to his Silent Bob) whispering for him to be quiet, looking in the crack under the door, and randomly walking into his sleeping girlfriends room to see if there was a guy hiding in there. Now in Jay’s defense he was out of his mind on heroin, and possibly other drugs, and all of that stuff probably made a world of sense to him at the time–Kevin Smith said that he was very convincing about the whole matter. I am guessing that something like that is probably at play here too, seeing as the guy does not have a phone number, and probably without famous friends to back him up on the possible logic of it.
