If you’re having an off day, spare a thought for one Mackay man who’s probably feeling worse.
Everyone is wondering about the identity of “Steve”, whose newly former partner Jenny took out a full-page ad in the Mackay And Whitsunday Life newspaper to denounce him as a “filthy cheater”.
“Dear Steve, I hope you’re happy with her. Now the whole town will know what a filthy cheater you are. From Jenny. PS. I bought this ad using your credit card,” it read.

The ad created so much interest the editor posted a response saying: “We have been inundated with dozens of messages this morning about the Advert on Page 4 of Mackay Life – as there’s too many to reply to, we would like to address it here.
“1. We do NOT know who Steve is, but apparently he’s been very, very bad.
“2. We won’t be revealing any details about Jenny.”
Jenny paid for the ad on her ex’s credit card – but the paper confirmed it had not charged him.
“Jenny sounds like someone I want to be friends with,” one person commented. “Never trust a Steve.”
“Not all heroines wear capes. Jenny is my new favourite person,” said another.
One Jenny even clarified: “So all my friends are aware. I am not the legend ‘Jenny’ and my ‘Steve’ has not been bad.”
But not everyone was convinced. Some claimed Jenny and Steve didn’t exist at all and the ad was a very clever marketing tactic by the team at Mackay And Whitsunday Life newspaper.
“This has PR stunt written all over it,” one user wrote, and another: “Good way of getting more likes and readers to your page.”
