I’ve heard of people getting dumped via phone message, text … I mean, even sky messages would be better than this.
I went out with this guy for a month – about 5 dates. Then, I got a … hahahahahahahahaha, wait for it … Facebook message saying he didn’t want to see me anymore. Yep, a Facebook message from someone who’s almost 40. Apparently 40 is the new acting like a middle schooler!
For fun, let’s just publish the whole message here (for public service announcement purposes and so we can all laugh about it together):
“Good morning. I wanted to let you know that I don’t think I should go to the baseball game with you tomorrow. I hate to break the plans, but I am sure that something is missing for me here. I would call but wanted to give you some notice and also did not want to bother you at work on the phone. As much as I like you, something just isn’t right for me and I am feeling claustrophobic with the idea of meeting all the family and all these plans. I hope you understand. Better to get it out now than later. It’s just the way life works, sometimes. I hold you in high regard!”
Just FYI, we never made any plans for him to meet my family. If just the “idea” of meeting them at some undefined period of time in the future makes you claustrophobic, then actually walking into the lion’s den with all 35 of us will make you break out in hives. You can’t handle us. (See here, here, here and here!)
Of course, I immediately picked up the phone to call him. Didn’t answer so I left a message. About 10 minutes later, I checked my Words with Friends and he had played a move about 1 minute earlier.
WHAT?!? You can’t pick up the phone, but you can lay down a triple word score? Don’t let the door hit you, dude.
This a public service for all you single fellas out there: Never do this. It’s lame and ridiculous and makes you look like a fool.
