A British woman could not help but laugh at the irony of her situation when she received a long list of ridiculous rules from her now ex-boyfriend during her night out.
Zoe Scholefield, of Wakefield, West Yorkshire, went on Twitter last Friday to share a text she received from the jealous man. Scholefield was apparently at an electronic music festival and talking about the artists who would perform when her former flame sent her 12 rules he wanted her to follow.
"Don't dance like a slag like in reflex," he writes in the text message. "Don't get too drunk."
As the list continues, the rules become increasingly reflective of the man's controlling nature.
"No boys and if anyone comes up to you and talks to you you tell them you have a boyfriend," he writes.
"Always send me photos of front and back of what you are wearing so I can approve and say whether or not I think you should wear it," another rule reads.
The list ends with perhaps the creepiest rule of all.
"If you can want a video of room before you sleep to prove no one else is there and you are off to sleep," it reads.
After Scholefield's ex sent the list, he purportedly couldn't follow his own rules and cheated on her.
"Funny how my ex sent me stuff like this then has the audacity to cheat on me," Scholefield tweeted.
