Flowers being ordered to another love interest isn’t a problem, but tolls are. Records for electronic toll collection systems, like E-ZPass, are now being used to prove infidelity. Your boyfriend may have said he was in Pennsylvania, but E-ZPass may prove he was really in New Jersey.

Instead, snag your ‘him’ his own UPS uniform, and role play. But even if you have more than a harmless crush on another man and are on the brink of having an affair, you can still find alternatives to jumping into bed with that other man, whom you didn’t promise to love, honor and cherish.
