Having an affair? Now you've got an alibi
Are you thinking of having an extramarital affair, but worried that giving in to temptation might destroy your marriage, family and reputation? Some might say, "Don't do it." But that would just be so, how do you say, American.

Over in France, Regine Mourizard has figured out a way to use the skills she gleaned in her career as a private detective to help philanderers keep their affairs from ruining their lives: Alibila, a Web site offering a variety of alibis to help affairs remain undiscovered. As the site puts it, "Let whoever has never needed a small alibi for their little fibs cast the first stone!" (This is not to say, however, that Americans are any more moral -- for confirmation, check out the online dating service Philanderers.com.)

According to the Guardian, Alibila can provide everything from conveniently timed phone calls (for 19 euros, you can have someone call your marital home to summon you out of the house "on business") to documents for fake events (like a wedding invitation for a long-lost cousin that can give you an excuse to escape for a weekend). Alibila can print out receipts for nonexistent restaurants, provide merchandise from fake conferences, fabricate bills, even send postcards from places you were supposed to have been. But mind you, Mourizard does not forge documents -- she only produces them from nonexistent places (so be careful about where you say you went to dinner). And according to Spiegel Online, the company also makes clients "sign a document pledging not to use the bills to swindle employers or the government." How very moral.

Feeling overwhelmed by the logistics of the affair itself? Never fear. Alibila can help you arrange your illicit rendezvous (that sort of scheduling is probably not something to farm out to your secretary ... unless, of course, that's who you're sleeping with). It can also send flowers and gifts in your name.

6. This is why I'll never have an affair...
I don't have the energy for the lies, the alibis, or the sneaking around. Besides, I'm in my forties, I'd rather have a good nights sleep.

7. A Guide for the Married Man (1967)
Ed: Basic principle number one - never say you'll be where you can be proved not to be.
Paul (Walter Matthau): Boy oh boy it just gets more complicated.
Ed: Protecting your loved ones is hard work.

Paul: That's the trouble with Ruth, she's such a wonderful wife.
Ed: Look Paul, if you care enough for your wife you can always find something about her you can't stand.

8. In my younger days I frequented a bar called 'The Office'.
The phone booth had a looped tape of 'office sounds' running.
A typewriter (OK, this was a long time ago.), copier, etc.
So I could call and say "Honey, I'm still at the office. I'll be home in another hour or so."
:evilgrin:

9. Sad.
The one being cheated on has my sympathy. Especially if that person ends up with a disease. :(
