When you break up with a guy, don't you want to make a big impression? Like, a huge, nuclear, scorched-Earth, you-will-never-forget-the-biggest-mistake-of-your-life kind of impression. God forbid we should just walk away with dignity, murmuring a careless au revoir over our shoulder, especially if we suffered before that breakup. No, when you leave with pain in your heart, you want to cause a little pain yourself.
But there's no reason why you have to be all grumpy pants about it. Take the author of this poison pen letter. Look at that cute handwriting. All those exclamation points and hearts. And she turned her letter into a game! She stole all her boyfriend's things, hid them, and left clues -- it's a scavenger hunt that leads the boyfriend down memory lane. That's so ... sick. It's kind of brilliant.
Apparently the boyfriend left his Facebook open on the computer and there was a message from another woman. Our note-writer doesn't give us a hint of what that message said, but it must have been pretty hot to start this fire. She gives herself credit for not breaking anything, and then informs her boyfriend that she's invented a "neat game" to help him find all his stuff.
Sweet. So just a little disclaimer here -- this was posted via Imgur, and we have no idea who the author is. The letter could just be a hoax (though if it is a hoax, well done there). That said, what a juicy dose of catharsis. We're just two steps away from bunny killing here, but she keeps her sense of humor, she's clever, and no one gets hurt.
Oh, but that's the downside. I mean, every breakup letter is intended to hurt back, but you know that intention always misfires. The boyfriend isn't going to dig through the back seat of his car and sigh to himself, "This is where Sheila finally let me f*&% her." He's not going to wipe away a wistful tear when he collects all of his clothes off the high school stadium bleachers where they first kissed. He's just going to be pissed -- pissed that he got caught cheating, and pissed that he has to go around collecting his stuff. He's going to refer to her forever after as "that crazy bitch."
Still, if this letter is real, it must have felt amaaaaazing to carry out this evil plan and leave this note behind. I bet she loved coloring in each and every angry red heart. And I hope that this ultimately harmless bit of revenge helps her move forward.
Have you ever written an angry breakup letter or delivered a long breakup speech?
