The spunky wife of a floor licking, scum sucking, receptionist-nailing hack accountant discovers her husband’s infidelity and writes up the dastardly deed in his monthly newsletter which she emails to kith and kin and customers. She accumulates notoriety (“SCORNED LOCAL WIFE SUED FOR SCATHING E-MAIL”) , attracts the appreciation of a geek girl with a business in female revenge communications, takes inventory, takes a lover, eats.
Funny afterscenes include the interview with her mother, published in the local Gazette,

“Everybody thinks Lacy’s gone crazy but that’s not true. She knew what she was doing… She was just pushed too far.

I just wish people would mind their own business, but really I have nothing to say.”
