Cheaters lead double lives, we know this. But some wing nuts, I’ve noticed, take hypocrisy to new levels. The Jesus cheaters who want their affairs blessed by the church. Hoarders who are board members of “clean environment” organizations. Family therapists who cheat on their spouses. Investment bankers who are embezzlers. The sinister ministers.
There are the double life amateurs and then… wow… there are some ballsy freaks.
So today’s question is — was there a big disconnect between your cheater’s Public Face and their private fuckupedness? Or were they always kind of an obvious train wreck?
Perhaps it’s not “meh” to dwell on this (untangling the skein and all), but I do wonder if certain professions or community organizations aren’t happy hunting grounds for narcs. Let me observe the chump in his or her natural habitat. Let’s see if I can’t score myself some instant credibility aligning myself with these saps.
I suppose the most obvious front is just having a faithful spouse and adoring family when you’re a cake eater.
Here’s a head scratcher — my cheater ex was an EAGLE SCOUT. For real. He can pitch a tent, tie knots, AND multitask fuckbuddies. Is there a merit badge for that?
Eagle scouts have to earn credits in good citizenship and family life. They have to walk little old ladies across the street and look people in the eye, have first aid skills, and firm hand shakes. You meet an Eagle Scout and you think… gee, that’s a little square. Or Hitler Jungen-ish.
Really, I don’t know what you think, but you probably don’t think… this scout will grow up one day to be a creeper, who hooks up for some strange pussy, and lies to his multiple wives (who leave him for his serial cheating).
Or do you?
Do you have narc-dar? Or do you still trust Eagle Scouts?
