Breaking Up is Hard

It's always a sad day when you get dumped via text message. Especially when you didn't know you were dating anyone to begin with.

I reproduce the text message conversation verbatim:

From: 555-555-5555 (3:32 pm)

Ok, it's getting real now. Probably should respond.

From: Me (4:17 pm)
Im not sure who this is... I think you have the wrong number
im sorry youre having a bad day

Reading that again, I wonder if it sounds a little snide. I was honestly intending to be sympathetic. She was having a rough day. Anyway, I never got a response or a truck.

The "Best Response to This Story Award" goes to Coach who asked if I was sure I hadn't subscribed to a country music lyric service.

So Taylor Swift*, if you're reading this I hope you're doing ok. Honestly, you're better off without that loser.

* Yes, a pop culture reference only a little over two years old. I believe that's a brand new record for this blog.
