Where Cheaters Go for a Holiday

12:00 AM Elizabeth Seckman 42 Comments

Welcome Mr. Jay Mims and his charming side-kick and sleuth, Dan Landis.
The winter doldrums are about to descend,
so I asked Jay, who evidently outsourced the job to Dan,
where are the best places to vacation?
Dan, of course, being the jaded sort of soul that he is,
sent me the best places for cheaters to spend their vacation days. 
Oh Dan. I pray for your imaginary soul ;)


  


Dear Liz,

Thanks for inviting me back to the blog (last time was fun). I appreciate you asking me for vacation advice, but my line of work leaves me pretty cynical and jaded. Almost like I'm a bird with a broken wing, in need of tender loving care.

And to watch that one Channing Tatum movie you love so much.

But honestly, I'm a ruggedly handsome private investigator who specializes in cheating spouses. And that's just my dating life.

DAN LANDIS PRESENTS: TOP FIVE VACATION DESTINATIONS (FOR CHEATING)

1) DOLLYWOOD: 




Trust me, chicks dig butterflies.

Look, unless you live within driving distance, the chances of getting caught cheating in Dollywood is pretty slim. If you're flying solo, just scope out the local groups. Aim for the church groups. Presbyterian Singles are pretty much one caramel pretzel from walking on the wild side. And what's great is, you don't need kids to enjoy the place. Unlike a certain Floridian vacation-destination that shall not be named. 


That's the one. 

And, if you do have kids, and you plan on taking them with you on your cheating vacation destination, then you really don't need my advice. You need the slow clap. Just remember, even a cheating vacation destination should be a learning experience. 

For instance, here's a metaphor for what 
your divorce proceedings will be like. Also, is that Santa?

2) Las Vegas

The hat costs extra. 

I realize this is a no-brainer for a cheating vacation-destination. But, on the other hand, you're the one getting advice on cheating from a fictional character. 

A charming fictional character whose latest adventures are on sale now.

Yes, go out to Vegas, where the women are beautiful, the men are rich, and every casino has a dirt-cheap buffet. Just remember, the slogan "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" doesn't apply to VD. Nothing says "I'm playing bed-hopping-bingo" like playing host to trichomoniasis.

Let's play a game I like to call "Spot the one with Daddy-issues!"
Hint: It's the one with a drink in her hand.

3) Niagra Falls

Your future ex-special someone is 
just at the end of the rainbow

What's great about Niagra Falls is, it's a hub for newlyweds and those seeking to rekindle their marital chemistry. The way to tell the groups apart is by who's wearing matching outfits. I'd say folks who try to hit on newlyweds on their honeymoon go to the special Hell, but come on. If you're hooking up with the new bride because the groom is off blowing the dowry on blackjack, that relationship was doomed from the start. 

I give it a year, tops. 

4) Cancun

This can't possibly end badly. 

Because if there's one thing your cheating vacation needs, it's a challenge. Yep, go to Cancun where the median age is 20, no one has a last name, and hangovers are for old people. On the plus side, you'll be the cougar/sugar daddy cruising the streets. On the negative, you're going to be someone's parent cruising Cancun. 

The most important thing is to have fun. And use an alias.

5) Your House

Oh wow! An engagement photo taken on a railroad track! 
It's like a metaphor!

Remember how your relationship used to be about two (or more, I'm not here to judge) people who really loved each other? And how you crazy kids decided to throw caution to the wind and make this whole thing work? Yeah, I don't either. 

I'm kind of wondering which came first: 
The couch or that chick's shirt?

But, maybe instead of trying to find a place to get a little slap and tickle, you could try a bit of wooing. Maybe try to understand what she's going through. Maybe try some self-improvement. Or, worst case scenario, with a little planning and some careful re-decoration, you can totally play the "Single Parent With A Deceased Spouse" card.

  1. Sounds like these are great places for cheaters to go on a getaway. However, i do agree with what you said that instead of trying to find a place to get a little slap and tickle, you could try a bit of wooing. It's only normal for couples to get into a fight, what's important is that you try to fix things and maybe you two can go on vacation and rekindle the relationship.

  2. Wooing and self-improvement sound good.

    Great post. :) I never would've figured Dollywood being on the list.

    1. Well, in fairness, no one expects the Spanish Inquisition either.

    2. I never expected Dollywood either...though with Jay, you never know what's going to happen!

  3. Any spouse who takes their cheating partner to the home they share with a married partner deserves a visit from Freddy. Seriously, don't do it. Dan has some serious issues but at least he has a job and does fun post. Enjoy your weekend Liz. Dan...yeah you do cool posts.

    1. Thanks! I think the idea was that a spouse looking to cheat should start by trying to make their current relationship work. However, I couldn't agree more. Dan really has some issues.

    2. I agree with you Sheena-kay...bringing it home is the lowest of low.

    Cheating is so wrong.

    1. Actually, none of those trips is one I'd ever make.

  6. Dollywood is kind of the bees knees. I happen to be within driving distance from it so my man (lol jk what man) probably shouldn't go there :D

    1. Holy crap, that's awesome! You have won my heart by both enjoying The 'wood and using "The Bees Knees" in a sentence.

    2. We've already discussed such negativity Ms. Samantha. Nuff said ;)

  7. "a passive-aggressive Dalek roommate named Steve"

    1. It's all fun and games until you get a note that says "THERE IS NO MILK IN THE MILK CONTAINER! WHO WOULD USE THE LAST OF THE MILK AND THEN PUT AN EMPTY MILK CONTAINER IN THE REFRIGERATOR? EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! PICK UP SOME MILK ON THE WAY HOME FROM WORK! EXTERMINATE!"

      Delete
    2. Seems a contradiction...if you're terminated, how can you pick up milk. Though that putting the empty container back in the fridge is just so wrong...not as wrong as cheating, but still...just throw it away already!!!

  8. I love Dollywood :) An interesting twist to this fun place. Haha.
