I agree with Bottle Cap, but I can also put myself in the shoes of the Lisas of the world and understand how it would be satisfying to kind of say, “Yeah, you stole from me, but you stole garbage that I didn’t want anyway, so joke’s on you!” No one likes to be in that situation; being the one of two that wasn’t chosen and it’s pretty natural for people to cover their pain, embarrassment and insecurity with ridicule and false bravado (and Facebook posts containing dirty underwear pictures).
Most likely if Slob came home and made some kind of respectable show of shame and guilt Lisa would take him back.
Also, I seriously doubt that you could get any kind of charges stick to this. I’m tired of e-lawyers claiming that everything is illegal on the internet.

Bottle Cap, I think most of the anger surely comes from the fact he’s left her for another woman, no? Maybe his skid marks were just a quirk of his she tolerated, until he cheated on her and she flipped out.
I, too, can appreciate why she’s angry. As automaton mentioned, even though Melissa stole a turd from Lisa, she’s upset that someone took something that was “hers”, no matter how horrible and stinky it appears to have been.
It sound to me like Slob had more than just hygiene problems that Lisa had to contend with, i.e. sitting in front of the computer all day. Sure, he may have been the perfect mate if you overlook the computer thing and cleanliness issues he seems to have, and Lisa is likely not the perfect woman but when I see posts like this I can’t help but wonder what attracted Lisa to Slob in the first place. Maybe he’s hung like a horse, who knows?
Did you ever have something laying around the house that you kept thinking “Man, I should get rid of it, but it does have SOME use and perhaps might be valuable someday… and there is some sentimental value…”
Then one day some nasty thief takes it and you realize, “Good grief, the house looks (and smells) so much better now that it is gone! What was I thinking? It was trash after all! Thank you, thief, for taking garbage out for me! I’d put it off way too long!”
It’s always jurisdictional, but there’s a pretty decent argument for defamation, and maybe even intentional infliction of distress.
On a similar note, I gamble and lose at least once a year. It never fails. Never to the extent in the picture, but enough to make me uncomfortable**. Depending on the whereabouts of my misfortune, I always toss or clean the deucey drawers before anyone catches wind of the situation. This guy failed in too many ways to count.
