Cheated spouses take it out on the car
Three in five people would take revenge on cheating spouses, with cars the main target of their fury, according to a survey.
Women were more likely than men to get even, with 10% of angered females targeting their man's motor, the poll of 3,000 people by the Autoglass company found.
Of those wanting to take revenge, 22-25-year-olds are most likely to smash a car windscreen, while 19-21-year-olds would damage the paintwork.
Those aged 31-35 were most likely to sell the vehicle for a few pence to get their own back.
Those aged over 50 were more inclined to give their cheating partner the silent treatment, while spending as much money as possible.
The most vengeful partners are to be found in Wales, where 67% would not be able to resist getting even. Of these, around a third would target the car.
The poll found the Scots were the most likely to physically attack their partner. Other ways those polled found of taking revenge included attacking a partner's clothes and putting laxatives in their food.
Autoglass managing director Nigel Doggett said: "Our research clearly shows that in the UK most people won't turn the other cheek when it comes to infidelity and as the car seems to be one of the prime targets for getting even, this poll should serve as a warning to anyone thinking of straying."
