I’d like to introduce you to this piece of s#*t by the name of Michael S. Rhoades. He currently lives on Phoebe St. in Green Bay, WI. and works for the prison system. || I’ve had the unfortunate privilege of knowing this a$$hole since about mid-2006. We were never close friends, however we were acquaintances and friendly. We’d talk on phone, in person, emails, in fact he even came to my home and helped me do some work. All in all, I thought he was a pretty decent guy and we shared a lot of common interests. || At the time that I first met Mike I had just purchased a house with my girlfriend. This was also the first time she’d met him. As time went on, she later became my fiancé and we eventually got married. About 6 months before we were to get married, I was looking at our phone bill, due to us having an extra line for someone and I felt the bill was quite high. In the process I noticed a particular number showing up frequently, and what I considered to be an abnormally high amount of texts and talk time with my fiancés phone. That phone number turned out to be Mike’s. I questioned my fiancé about it, and I stupidly took her word and trusted her when she completely denied any wrongdoing and claimed they were just friends talking about mundane things. At the time I didn’t question him as I didn’t want to blow it out of proportion and I wanted to trust her. She and I went to see a counselor as we were working opposite shifts at the time and it felt like we were growing apart some, even though we were due to get married that summer. She was even adamant with the counselor that there was nothing to worry about with Mike, and that there was never anything with him. I foolishly accepted that, and we were married several months later. || Fast-forward to Aug. 2012, my world blew-up, and I found out what Mike’s true colors were. As the years went on after she and I got married, he and I still talked now and then, but I always had a weird feeling in my gut. I pushed it aside as I’m aware that I am a bit jealous by nature and I didn’t want to be that way. || I frequently used my wife’s iPad to play games. On Aug. 20th, 2012 I grabbed her iPad to play a game and her Facebook was up. My curiosity got the better of me and I clicked on her private messages. There I found a lengthy conversation with Michael Rhoades from a couple weeks prior that confirmed my deepest fears and my prior suspicions. It was incredibly hard to read through those messages, as they started out relatively ordinary, however they quickly turned to a sexual nature, including talking about past meetings and planning for a future meeting. He even made the comment that it’d be easier if I were on a different work shift. || She was at work when I discovered those messages. So I texted him and bluntly asked if there was anything between the two of them that I needed to know. He completely denied it and said the famous bullsh#t line “we’re just friends”. He then seemed to get irritated and I told him that I found some messages that make me think otherwise. His only response was to tell me to talk to my wife. I then texted him a couple quotes from the messages, but then he didn’t have anything to say in return. I immediately confronted her when she got home. She initially tried to deny it, but then admitted to sleeping with him. She attempted to trickle truth so many different details, but my worst fear was confirmed. || Sometime later he emailed me his version of the whole story. His version varies significantly from hers in regards to when and where, but they match in other aspects. However, he attempted, and still does, to downplay his role in this with statements like he was weak and he felt guilty. Obviously not guilty enough to stop his actions! || Now I don’t diminish her role in what she’s done to me, they are equally guilty. I think it would be easier for me to deal with if it were some random stranger that I don’t know. But this guy acted at times as a friend to me, in fact the very morning before I found the Facebook messages he and I talked on the phone about places to go four-wheeling, all the while he was stabbing me in the back. || Unfortunately I still have to see this parasite periodically, and every time I envision what I’d like to do him. Sadly, I can’t do any of it without risking damage to my kids and jeopardizing my career. I can only hope that karma catches up to him and makes him suffer greatly. || So ladies, if you know this a$$hole be aware that he has absolutely no morals, doesn’t care about anyone but himself, and has no regard for the damage he causes other people. If you are in a relationship, value that relationship in the slightest, and have an ounce of respect for your boyfriend/fiancé/husband it’d be in your best interest to stay as far away from this parasite as you can. || Guys, you’ll definitely want to keep a watchful eye on this a$$hole. Even if you think he’s a friend, he’ll stab you in the back in a heartbeat. In his email to me he claimed that he sees how low he stooped and that he’ll never do anything like that again. However, he hasn’t changed. As recently as the fall of 2013 I had a married woman tell me that Mike has no shame or morals and continues to hit on her even though he knows she’s married and knows her husband.
