For $10, This Company Will End Your Relationship So You Don't Have To
Go ahead and add "breakups" to the list of things you outsource for a small fee.
Yup, you read that right. A new company — The Breakup Shop — will handle your breakup if you're willing to pay. With the tagline, "Bad relationship? Let us help you end it," and an option to "become a heartbreaker," their offerings are totally serious and pretty straightforward.
How does it work? The Breakup Shop offers the following services:
- Breakup text, $10
- Breakup letter (standard), $20
- Breakup letter (custom), $30
- Breakup phone call, $29
- Breakup email, $10
If, when you're done paying someone else to do your dirty work, empathy strikes, the site also gives you some gift options to soften the blow of being broken up with by a total stranger. They include a Blu-ray of "The Notebook," a box of chocolate chip cookies, Netflix gift cards, a set of two wine glasses (though ostensibly, the receiver will only need one since, you know, he or she is now single) or Call of Duty: Ghosts. Because nothing says "thanks for the memories but we're over" like a video game.
Come on, though. You were definitely raised better than this ... right?
