List Rules Vote up ONLY the breakups that make you audibly cringe

It's a harsh fact of life that people break up. Relationships end all of the time, really. Right before the holidays seems to be a popular time to pull the rip cord. You’re saving yourself some Christmas shopping, an uncomfortable New Year’s Eve kiss. . . it’s pragmatic really. But even if it’s summer, people are always getting broken up with. It happens year round and you should know that Facebook is not the place to do it (even if you caught them cheating). It's really one of the worst ways to break up with someone. Go ahead and tell your friends or change your relationship status, but actively telling the person who was nice to you for at least a small amount of time that you no longer want to be with them via Facebook is pretty brutal. Really giving someone this news in any kind of public way is pretty sh*tty.

Here are a some people who are setting a great example for exactly what not to do when breaking up in public in front of the whole world or publicly on Facebook in front of the whole Internet. Families, hearts, and probably a bunch of teddy bears were torn apart in the events listed here. Some of these pictures you may have seen before, but you have haven’t seen ALL of them, so vote the best ones up to the top. Also, please take a moment to look at all these very public/Facebook breakups and note everything you really shouldn’t be doing. Pick these people apart. Dissect their misery and let it be your science. Learn from this. 

NOTE: Oh and don’t do the “repetition” part of science where you test if this is really a bad idea. Just do the part where you learn. You know what? It’s not science. These people who broke up with each other over Facebook aren’t your new science. They are your new gospel. DO NOT BREAK UP WITH ANYONE OVER FACEBOOK. Or really in any public way. Be nice.

This Sushi Guy Story Is Worth Reading

From reddit, "My husband and I were out to eat at an awesome sushi bar on a weekend. It is packed and we were sitting at the u-shaped sushi bar. Most people at the bar there eat omakase style (you don’t order, just tell the chef what you don’t like and he just gives you sushi and small plates until you say stop, its a social thing and you are interacting with the chef a lot so he knows what direction to go next).

Next to us is a couple in their early 50s or so, no rings. The guy calmly tells the woman right after they sit down that he’s been cheating on her and she can deal with it or not, he doesn’t care. She understandably gets upset, but is trying not to make a scene, so she asks them to leave so they can talk in private. He says 'no' and just keeps hoovering down sushi. She is crying and asks the usual questions: what did I do wrong, what do they have/do that I don’t, do you even care about me, etc. He answers her in great sexual detail why all of these other women are better than her in bed, critiques her BJ technique, tells her he doesn’t like her haircut, just awful things, in between talking to the chef about his food. By this point the both of them are oblivious to the fact that the 25 other people at the bar can all hear them and are super uncomfortable. I gather that he drove them there and she doesn’t have a phone. I put my phone on the bar and wordlessly offer it to her to call someone to come get her. She starts bawling harder and says that she can’t call anyone because they live hours away and came to the city for a romantic getaway. He shrugs and they go back to arguing.

This goes on for about 45 minutes. He ate all her food too. When he is finally done, they pay and leave. The chef apologizes to all of us for that and pours a sake shot on the house for us. It was the most awkward dinner ever. I have no idea why the dude picked that moment to tell her this. Just before he started, they had asked us what we were having and seemed to be fine with each other."

Okay This Is Definitely Not the Type of Thing You Hold Back for Ammo for Later

Someone on reddit shares, “This couple was arguing – very loudly at that – about their problems in the relationship. Well one thing led to another and then a woman screams out:


The poor guy didn’t even know what to say. He was so dumbfounded that he just sat there while she stormed out.”
