All of us are aware that a whole spectrum of people exist on Earth – from the absolutely saintly selfless to the most diabolically cruel. It’s amazing how people can vary so much to such extremes.
Two cases of people on the dark part of the spectrum caught my attention this week. I usually just bring up the bad actors on Wall Street that fleece their customers but these two stood out to me.
A very talented student who excels in playing the clarinet applied for a prestigious scholarship at a conservatory for training under one of the very best clarinet teachers. The scholarship is valued at $50,000, which was a full ride including tuition, housing, meals, and miscellaneous living expenses. The clarinet teacher also only accepts 2 people a year to train- which shows you how difficult it is to get approved for acceptance.
Despite those long odds, the student manages to convince the instructor and conservatory to accept him and approve him for the special scholarship.
However, he never finds out he is accepted….
…because his girlfriend at the time whom he had been dating for 5 months, saw the email of acceptance that was sent to him, and deleted it. 😲 After that, she forged an email from the conservatory telling him that he was NOT accepted, and then forged another email to mail to the conservatory telling them he refused the scholarship. 😠 The poor guy went on with his life never realizing his girlfriend duped him out of his dream until years later when he had a chance to talk with that famous instructor.
Now before I provide the story link, the reason being given for this action is that the girlfriend was afraid of losing him, thinking he would break up with her. I don’t believe this to be the case. I think it has more to do with the actions of someone psychotically jealous of his abilities.
But can you imagine how angry he must be feeling when he found out? She sabotaged his entire career! 😠 What a betrayal, by someone he would never have expected it from…..so disturbing!
Divorced man marries woman, then after a while, starts cheating on her with other women, one of them being his ex-wife. 😲 Man runs into debt problem and looks for a way out. His solution? Arrange for his wife, the MOTHER of his two kids, to have an “accident” so he can collect on her life insurance which will also free him up to pay off his debt and chase other women. 😠 Fortunately for the wife, her guardian angel was looking out for her. He tries once, fails, tries again, and this time his misdeeds are exposed.
Sure, some people are evil, but for people to betray someone they supposedly pledged their heart to is especially depraved. At least these two cases had positive outcomes for the victims.
