What are some euphemisms for cheating?

Asked by rebbel (32408points) September 5th, 2011

In my previous question I wrote in the details fill in your favorite euphemism for cheating here.
Before I wrote that I searched the net a bit to find some, but I did not succeed the only one that was slightly usable was “Parking the Lovemobile in a New Garage”, but I wasn’t sure about it.
English isn’t my first language (or, I hardly speak it, so maybe that is also a reason I don’t know them plus, I do not cheat.
Do you have some, or one?

Ah, now that you talked about your neigbor, @chyna , I remember that my ex father in law always went bird watching, my then girlfriend told me.
For real, with binoculars and a bird watch book he went out :-)

One that became big here when the then-governor of South Carolina was having an affair with a Brazilian woman was hiking the Appalachian trail.

the French call it “le cinq á sept”...a quickie after work and before dinner.

@marinelife Hahaha…how could we forget that. We turned into a meme at work when it happened. If someone was going to do something we knew was a lie, we called it hiking the Appalachian trial.
