A bricklayer who built a tunnel from his home to his lover's was discovered by her husband.
The construction worker from Mexico, who was named by local media as Alberto, dug the passageway allowing him to see a woman called Pamela in the Villas del Prado neighbourhood in Tijuana.
The couple would meet up while her husband, Jorge, was working at his security job.
And they managed to get away with it until Jorge returned home one day earlier than usual and caught them red-handed.
After checking for Alberto under the bed, Jorge eventually found him hiding behind the couch before he disappeared.
He then uncovered the hole near the sofa, which he followed all the way to Alberto's house.
After coming up the other side, Alberto pleaded with the cheated husband to leave so his wife, who was sleeping, didn't find out what was going on.
But Jorge did tell her and the two men had a fight.
According to reports, police were called and took Alberto away in order to calm the situation down.
But while this might seem a particularly extreme length to go to, it's nothing compared to the man who dug a tunnel so that he could spy on his ex.
Meet Cesar Arnoldo Gomez, who, after getting dumped for being too jealous, had to be rescued from a tunnel he'd made to keep an eye on an old partner.
The 50-year-old had been in a relationship with Griselda Santillan for 14 years and was clearly finding it difficult getting over her. He was rescued from a makeshift tunnel outside Santillan's home in Oriente, Puerto Penasco, in the north-western Mexican state of Sonora on Thursday.
According to reports, 58-year-old Santillan had heard unusual sounds coming from outside her home for about a week, but she had assumed it was just stray animals. However, these noises became more intense and Santillan went to investigate.
Speaking to EI Universal, she said: "I asked a neighbour to look inside and they said there was nothing there, but then I noticed some shoes, tools and water. I shouted at him to get out, but he did not do anything."
Red Cross Staff and firefighters retrieved Gomez from the tunnel, though he did not want to leave and had to be dragged out. Civil Protection official Francisco Javier Carrillo Ruiz said that Gomez had been stuck for more than 24 hours and rescuers had a hard time removing him from the narrow tunnel.
Gomez was subsequently taken to hospital where he was treated for dehydration.
