YI! Here are some of the most hilarious ways to tell your partner that it is over:
A pizza box is just one of the creative ways partners have found to tell their partner that they are ending their relationship.
A compilation of break-up letters posted online includes letters, personal ads and even a billboard.
Another person saying goodbye, shows a cheery drawing of a man riding a giraffe saying: "I think we should break up I would tell you why, but I am having a tough time describing my feelings. So I drew a picture of me riding a giraffe, instead. Sorry, ZF.”
A guy named Kevin found out things were over when every other reader did-- in a personal ad…
Both Slacker and Steve are passive aggressive breakup-ers, and just ignore the girls until they breakup with them. They go ghost, till the girl leaves.
Hey guys! I figured this would be better written than anything I could say on the phone!
So I made the mistake of dating a high school crush (10 years later) who lives here and is an accountant. We dated for 3 months long distance and when I moved to Colorado I lived with him for the first month and a half. He insisted on flying out to San Francisco to do the drive back with me. He also insisted on letting me live for free at his house though I offered to pay rent (he argued I dog sat for him and that was worth my rent), and he was kind enough to let me borrow his truck while living at his house and commuting to work and to move to my new apartment in Denver. When we broke up and he got upset, he decided it was acceptable to retroactively bill me for all those things he had done.
Here's what he sent me: "I have given you ample time to come up with a reasonable amount to be paid to me and to date have not heard anything about when or how much. As such, I have taken the time out of my day to make a conservative bill for you. I based the amounts on items that fall outside of the scope of a general boyfriend / girlfriend relationship. Further, certain items were excluded such as me taking you to the grocery store and helping you pick up and move chairs.
Again and as noted in the attached document, please remit payment as soon as possible. If you have any questions regarding the balance or how items were calculated please let me know as soon as possible."

To sum up my response, I basically told people don't bill for every good action they do just because they have a falling out...can you imagine that slippery slope??
Needless to say I called him out and never gave him a penny!!
