This man’s ex is an evil genius

DANIEL Jones didn't quite realise what he was messing with when he unceremoniously dumped his ex-girlfriend.

The Lothario, from Kansas City in the United States, freely admits he "screwed over" the unnamed woman.

However, he was so impressed with her revenge scheme he posted a screenshot on Twitter in all its devious glory.

Over the course of their relationship, the woman learnt his phone number by heart.

It seems she now gives it out to all the random guys she meets at bars, leaving Mr Jones to fend off her unwanted admirers.

The image shows a series of texts from a guy called Jared, who generously bought the woman a few shots the night before.

Judging by the messages he sent Mr Jones at 12:51am, it seems pretty clear Jared thought he was going to get lucky later that night.

"Slide thru," he began, giving instructions to the door.

"Where y'all," said the next message.

"What up," he tried again before giving up.

At 9:14am the next day, Mr Jones wrote back: "Who is this?"

"Jared I bought you Vegas bombs last night LMAO [laughing my a*** off]," the hapless victim replied hopefully.

Presumably, the next message was a pretty rough for poor Jared.

However, it seems Mr Jones doesn't mind doing the woman's administration.

"A girl I screwed over once upon a time now gives my number to all the guys she's not interested in at the bars. Well played," he tweeted.

Clearly, others agreed the woman's revenge was a masterstroke of sassiness.

"Low key genius," a woman called Brittanie Smith tweeted.

"I really need to know who this woman is so I can be her friend," wrote another user.

"I aspire to be this petty in life," replied a user called Torrence Rogers.

A user called Stefan Mendoza said it was simply: "Legendary."
