A 36-year-old married husband and Redditor posted a story on the online bulletin board, detailing a situation he witnessed which left him “feeling very confused.”
Spoiler alert: there’s a twist in this crazy story he got mixed up in.
Reddit user “feelingveryconfused” confessed that he set up a hidden camera in his bedroom because he suspected his housekeeper of stealing from him.
Upon seeing footage he had secretly recorded, he found himself in a strange dilemma which is seriously tugging at his heartstrings.
He then went on Reddit to ask users advice for his problem.
In the man’s story, he and his wife hired a 25-year-old nursing student to clean their house once a week.
“Our housekeeper is a 25 year old LPN student at a local college. She came highly recommended by a pastor friend of mine who had used her to clean their house for a few years before he moved. She is an excellent housekeeper, no problems there,” he wrote.
All was fine until one day the netizen noticed that his Seiko watch was missing. He had searched his entire house to look for the watch only to have it magically reappear when “Rachel” returned to his home to clean.
“About a month ago I noticed that my Seiko watch was missing. I looked for it for a whole week, and then magically it appeared back on the dresser the day she cleaned. I questioned her about it and she said she found it behind the dresser, however, I remember looking behind the dresser very well because … well I assumed thats where it would have fallen,” he wrote.
Over the few weeks, he began noticing that certain items of his would disappear then reappear – somethings getting misplaced.
“There were other things over the last year that got moved around or suspiciously missing but then reappeared but you get the idea. I was so sure that I had looked behind the dresser I decided to set up a trail camera kind of nestled behind a bookshelf overlooking our bedroom, and more importantly, all of our expensive stuff like jewelry and handgun (yes in a small locked handgun safe),” he wrote.
That’s when the netizen decided to place a hidden camera in his bedroom - worried that Rachel might be a thief.
In the footage he accumulated in two weeks, the netizen noticed that Rachel spent a majority of her time cleaning the closet.
Upon checking the closet, he found that the area was cleaned but his bag and his wife’s ‘adult’ toys had been moved around.
“The camera has been up for 2 weeks now, and last week (she cleans on mondays) and I noticed her spend a curious amount of time in our closet, but otherwise nothing out of the ordinary. Its also just picture mode so its hard to tell exactly whats going on.
When I got home that night I checked the closet and could see that she appeared to have moved our “toy” bag if that makes sense., everything appeared to be clean, so I had no idea if she had actually messed with anything inside or not,” he wrote.
After that incident, he checked the hidden cam footage once more upon returning from a long business trip.
“I decided to wait and see if anything more concrete would surface. This week, I went out of town monday morning (06/20) for a 1 night business trip, and I got back late last night. After everyone was in bed I took the card out of the camera and checked the pictures,” he wrote.
What he discovered on film disturbed him.
“What I saw made we want to throw up. You can see her come in and start cleaning, and then after about 30 minutes there’s another picture of her going into the closet, and then coming back out with the toy bag. She lays on my bed, right where my wife usually sleeps, and starts to play with a vibrating egg. Its hard to tell exact toys because of the resolution, but this one has a cord so I’m pretty sure,” he wrote.
“The next thing I see is my wife walk in, and sit on the bed. If she was surprised I couldn’t tell from the pictures. My heart started pounding. I am thinking that my wife just caught her in the act! Why hasn’t she told me about this????” he added.
In a nutshell, “Rachel” and his wife have been “playing around” with each other behind his back. In short, he was being cheated on by his wife with another woman!
“She and the housekeeper talked for a while. Then suddenly, the photos showed “Rachel” leaning over and the next picture shows her burying her face between my wife’s legs!!” he wrote.
It was this point the netizen was feeling very confused and insecure about the strange situation. He made it clear that in the photos he took, not once did he see the two kiss. However, that doesn’t mean that he wasn’t hurt and lost upon this revelation.
“At no time was there any kissing, but I could have missed it. Just purely sexual. All total there were 57 pictures, but only about 15 of them were related to this. Its really hard to piece the whole story together with pictures (there’s a 1 minute delay on the camera between pics, plus it has to be triggered by motion)” he wrote.

Many Redditors agreed that although the scene may have been ‘sexy’ and stirred his ‘arousal’ - cheating is still cheating. Other netizens told feelingveryconfused that he needed to confront his wife on her infidelity.
The last thing the netizen posted was:
“Wife”, you know I suspected “Rachel” was stealing from us? Well, I set up my camera in our bedroom. I did this to catch her, but it obviously caught something else. I’m not mad at you, I just feel betrayed. Why would you do this without talking it through to me?”
