Breaking up with someone is never easy. How do you do it without hurting their feelings? What do you do if they cry? What if they get angry? These are all questions that run through the mind of every person about to initiate a break-up.
Faced with the possibility that it could get messy, many of us would love to be able to text our partner to call it off. Let’s face it, no millennial likes to accept responsibility for their actions, but thankfully few people take the coward’s way out.
However, some people really do take dumping via text very seriously. So when one Twitter user pulled a practical joke by texting a bunch of random numbers and dumping them, not everyone saw the funny side.
“Broke up with a bunch of random numbers this morning,” wrote Primavera alongside a picture of his message inbox which featured dozens of short outbound texts. “This isn’t working out,” he texted. “I’m breaking up with you.”
