This might be a first in the history of catching cheating boyfriends.
Kayla Speer had been dating an unnamed villain for about five months, and most of the relationship had been long distance. Of course, being in a relationship with someone who lives far away can be pretty difficult. Not seeing one another and dealing with huge amounts of physical distance is a unique challenge that requires increased amounts of trust and understanding. Couples who can successfully pull this off deserve a high five, and they definitely come out the other side better for it.
But it sounds like Kayla was the only one playing by the rules. What follows is a mind-blowing Twitter thread detailing the ridiculous way she found out her former beau was cheating, the heroic actions of a Jimmy John’s delivery driver, and one of the most insane parties ever proposed by a sandwich company — which is an incredible sentence.
Buckle up, this one’s a wild ride.
So you have a little context, say hi to Kayla, your tour guide through this mad adventure.
Her bio only says that she’s a graduate of Iowa State, but her Twitter thread is far more detailed.
Honestly, this just sounds like she’s about to tell us about a really great sandwich she ate once. But we promise it’s so much juicier.
All right, we see you. Just a couple of smitten young kids trying to take on the world. What could go wrong?
Here comes the inciting incident.
What a sweetheart Kayla is. And for anyone who’s not pulled this move before, ordering food while out of town for someone is a super-smooth move (this nightmare story notwithstanding).
The important thing to remember here is that the Jimmy John’s team is aware of the situation. They know they are delivering a surprise sandwich to a guy, sent by his girlfriend.
Spoiler alert: He wasn’t napping.
And here's where the penny drops.
You have to wonder what was going through the boyfriend’s mind for these few minutes. Did he immediately realize he was busted?
This is completely reasonable, because no one could anticipate a delivery driver saying what comes next.
The intricacies of romantic relationships are not usually the concerns of sandwich delivery men.
If this were a movie, the music would get really deep and dark at this point.
Understandably, Kayla had a couple questions.
This poor driver. You know Kayla was probably asking things about hair color and complexion, forcing this guy to relive what he’d just seen.
According to Kayla, the driver told her on the phone, “It was so awkward I just wanted to get out of there, so I just gave him the sandwich and left.'”
What a driver. What a hashtag.
But wait! There’s one more fantastic detail to this already incredible story.
Once Jimmy John's head office heard this story, they decided to go the extra mile to cheer Kayla up.
Most people handle a breakup with wine and sad movies. Kayla and her friends are going to be doing it with some Jimmy John’s.
All’s well that ends in subs.
