Love can be a treasured thing for many of us. That is until things take a turn, and we’re left with a brutal breakup note instead.
Love. A four-letter word that can have our heart skip a beat and leave butterflies fluttering in our tummy. There is nothing quite like the feeling of falling in love with someone. So what about when it goes wrong? Some of us dream of nothing more than finding the one we love and spending the rest of our lives with them by our side. Others? They prefer to fall for the simpler things in life. A good slice of chocolate cake or a classic movie can sometimes be enough to have our hearts racing.
While some of us want to find our soulmate in this world, others have had enough of the mess that can sometimes come with the emotion. After all, some people believe that all good things must come to an end. There can be all kinds of reasons that we have to break off a relationship. Sometimes our feelings change, and other times things are out of our control. Whatever the case, it can be tough to be on either side of the equation. Thankfully, some people have found ways to leave hilarious breakup notes for their ex – even if some of them are bordering on brutal.
Love can sneak into our many of our lives at any age
Love can hit us at all times in our lives. For some, it comes early on. That was the case for one person as they met and fell for their one true love at the beginning of their lives. The problem? Something had changed, and they knew they had to go their separate ways. There was just one problem: it was their one-month anniversary when they had to break the news.
They quickly decided the best way to tell their love that things were over was through a hilarious breakup note. Don’t worry; things weren’t easy for them as they put their emotions out there. We’re just glad that someone saw the note and shared it with the rest of the world.
Breakup notes can sometimes be on the formal side
There are all kinds of ways you can break the news to someone that things aren’t what they were, and you’re ready to move on with your life. You could do it face to face. You could opt to change your number and pretend they never existed. This person? They wanted to do it through a breakup note.
Things started well as it looked like Erin was going to get a love letter that many of us dream about. That was until things took a turn, and Erin learned it was the complete opposite of a letter filled with love. Although they were dating, the person behind this letter decided to make things a little bit more formal as they called off the relationship.
One person needed to fold their breakup note to get the real meaning
We can’t help but wonder what leads some people to put in all this effort to break up with someone. While we may never know what hurt this person so much, we do know they wanted to make a video sharing their true feelings. It all started so well. It seemed they’d put a lot of work into their note as they shared the love with their partner.
Unfortunately for the person on the receiving end, they had put a lot more thought into the note than first meets the eye. All they needed to do was fold the note in a certain way and reveal the true meaning of the message. In one swift move, it had gone from love to the end.
A neighbor wanted the entire neighborhood to enjoy their breakup note
It’s one thing to leave a hilarious breakup note for your partner. It’s on a whole new level to share your breakup with the rest of the world. That was the case for one person when they learned their husband had been unfaithful, and their marriage was through. However, they weren’t ready for the neighborhood gossip to make up a story about what happened.
Instead, they wanted to tell their neighbors what happened and put the rumors to rest. It turned out they would miss everyone they had called their neighbors in their home and wanted them to know they’d never forget the memories they’d made in the neighborhood. Alas, it was time for them to bid farewell to the house and move on.
Someone was given a choice about how things would end
There aren’t many times we can be prepared for bad news that’s on the way. That’s one of the horrible things about bad news: it has a habit of sneaking into our lives and hitting us like an iceberg. However, things were a little different for one person on the receiving end of a hilarious breakup note. We have one question: is this fair, or is this bordering on brutal?
At first, it looks as though they’re giving someone a choice when it comes to how the relationship will end. That is until you look a little closer and realize they can do nothing but let the inevitable come their way. We bet the “in person” box had more than a few checkmarks.
Notes on the mirror aren’t always filled with loving messages
Of course, there are many benefits to being in a loving relationship – especially when you live with one another. Many couples enjoy waking up to the one they love, while others love to make lunch for their loved one or leave little notes around the house. One great way to show someone you care is to write a note in the steam on the bathroom mirror.
Not this person. They wanted to make sure their message came across loud and clear, so grabbed some lipstick and got to work. We’re not sure how to feel. Are we supposed to feel a little better knowing they apologized, or do we remember this is a pretty harsh way to wake up in the morning?
A billboard hurts even more when it’s from a joint account
When it comes to hilarious breakup messages, we think this one is near the top. No, we’re not just talking about where it is on the building. Emily could have just left a note at home or told Steven their relationship was ending face to face, but where’s the fun in that? We get the feeling that Emily has been trying to make a point for a while.
All of those ignored calls and texts merely pushed her further to creating one of the most public breakup messages in history. As if all of that wasn’t enough already, she even told Steven – and the world – how he’d paid for half of the billboard thanks to a little thing called their joint bank account.
Valentine’s Day is never a good day to break up with your beloved
Is there ever a good time to break up with someone? Their birthday or over the holidays is usually a particularly bad time to call things off. After all, it ruins the moment for the year, and the annual event can serve as nothing but a reminder of what once took place on the day. There is another day to add to the list.
That’s right; we’re talking about Valentine’s Day, aka a day that’s supposed to be filled with love. Laura even knew that it was harsh to break up with her boyfriend on Valentine’s Day, but it wasn’t enough to stop her plans. All she needed was a particularly public sign to really rub salt in the wounds.
Someone wasn’t ready for the relationship to come to an end
Being in a relationship means we often have someone by our side at all hours of the day. If you’re feeling lonely or you want to share some good news, then why not message your beloved? That’s what one person thought. However, they probably weren’t prepared for the response as they learned their relationship was about to end.
In fact, they were so unprepared for the relationship to end that they refused to accept it at all. It could be some kind of inside joke, or this person could have cracked the code. What if we merely refuse to let someone break up with us? The more we think about it, the more that might not be such a great idea after all…
An NFL sign breakup is one way to drive the point home
There are all kinds of great things that come from heading to an NFL game. To start, you get to be there for all those record-breaking moments that could happen on the field. Then there’s the thrill of being in among the crowd. There is nothing quite like being surrounded by thousands of fans as your team scores the winning point.
Another on the list? There is a chance you could find yourself on the big screen. That’s what one woman hoped for and got as she turned up at the big game with a homemade sign. She wasn’t there just to support her team. Oh no, she was there to tell her ex-boyfriend that he was just that: an ex.
Two girlfriends decided to join forces for a brutal breakup note
Some people want to forget all about a horrible moment in their lives. Finding out our partner has been unfaithful is one that many people want to bury in the past. Not this pair. Rather than get angry at one another, the women decided to pair up as they named and shamed Steven Frazer and his wandering eyes.
All they needed was the perfect place to announce the news. Why not choose a very public, very high up bridge where just about anyone in the city can see the banner? Perfect. Now, Steven was left with no choice but to tuck his tail between his legs as he lost not one but two girlfriends in one afternoon. That really is double trouble.
Batman played a huge part in one person’s breakup message
There are plenty of reasons that our favorite movies stick with us our entire lives. It seems the superhero movie ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ left more of a mark on this person than they ever realized. They opened their phone and were met with a breakup text from their former loved one. How had things gone so wrong? What had happened?
Was there anything that could be done to put the pieces back together? They were questions for another time as they quickly realized where they’d heard this story before – and they weren’t impressed. Now, we’re left wondering if the person realized they were quoting the movie or if they were hoping their ex-partner would never figure out the truth.
Social media breakups can lead to huge online drama
Social media is a place to keep up with our loved one’s lives – and find ourselves in the middle of some unfolding drama. That was the case for anyone who was friends with Marshall as their relationship status suddenly changed to single. That was just the beginning of the story. It turns out they weren’t the ones behind the change; that was all thanks to their behavior.
Their now-ex-partner wanted the world to know that Marshall had been messaging other girls throughout their relationship, even though they had been in a relationship for the last year. The entire thing came to a devastating end for Marshall when they were reminded that Xbox was about to get a new home. Ouch.
Emojis mean people don’t even need words to break up with their partner.
The world has come a long way over the years. New technology makes it easier than ever to keep in contact and meet new people from all around the world. The best bit? New languages have even cropped up, with some people knowing how to talk in nothing but emojis. That seems to be the case for one person.
They wanted to break up with their significant other but didn’t know how. That was until they stumbled upon some emojis and found a brand new way to announce their relationship was coming to an end. While it might be a new way to tell someone you’re off, it’s certainly a way to make sure the breakup is as brutal as possible.
Magic tricks on the phone don’t always end as expected
Did this person want to test their relationship, or were they trying to make sure their partner was really caught off guard? We may never know. All we do know is this breakup went from 0 to 100 real fast. The person writing the poem might have wanted to rethink their handiwork before hitting send. That is if they wanted to keep their partner.
It seems the story of their partner heading to the zoo was the final nail in the coffin as their partner had something in return. Rather than a love-filled gesture, it was a magic trick. Disappearing acts have been a fan-favorite for many years. Whoever knew they could be performed over the phone? At least we know now.
Pizza doesn’t always know how to make someone feel better
Who wouldn’t love a free pizza? While some people would turn it down, many of us would love for our loved one to send a pizza our way. However, we’re not sure many of us would like to open the box and find this message written on the inside. Sometimes, we’re greeted by a joke. Other times we open the lid and find our partner’s proposal.
This time? It was something very different. Hopefully, the pizza was enough to take the sting out of this brutal breakup note. Pizza has a way of making most things feel a little better. Sadly, it doesn’t have the same effect when it’s the pizza box that caused the misery in the first place.
A permanent bus ticket will cost a lot more than one dollar
Some people want to make sure a breakup goes as smoothly as possible. To start, it seems that’s what happened when Jeff decided it was time to leave Mary. Many of us have learned that there is never a good time to end a relationship. However, calling things quits just after your partner sold their car to share yours is probably one of the worst times.
That was just the start of the problems for Mary. Although Jeff might have been trying to redeem himself with some money for the bus, he seems to have forgotten that bus trips don’t come cheap – especially when you now have to do them every day. Perhaps the news would have been easier if it was a $100 bill?
One person hit their unfaithful husband right where it hurt
There are a few things that some of us hold dear in our lives. Some find themselves holding onto family heirlooms. Others would do anything to protect their car. This person appears to have fallen in love with their boat. At least, they used to have happy memories on the ship before their partner found out the truth.
If you want to make your point, you need to hit them where it hurts. There was no better way to prove a point than by spray painting “cheating husband” along the side of his boat and leaving it for the entire neighborhood to see. We can only assume that’s all of his things in the boat, too. Towing that will be fun.
Some people don’t have to speak a word to break up with their partner
The modern-day means leaving someone is easier than ever. Before, people actually had to talk to their partner and tell them they wanted out of the relationship. Now, you don’t even have to be in the same room. In fact, this hilarious breakup note shows you don’t have to say a word. Why waste your breath when the music can speak for you?
If you’ve ever dreamed about your partner making you a playlist, you might want to double-check there are no hidden messages in the songs – especially when it comes to a message like this. Their signal might have been choppy, but this message came across loud and clear. How many song titles have the word “No” in them again?
One person needed to move across the world to get away from their partner
If you can’t find the words to tell someone the truth, say it with cake. A slice of the sweet stuff can be enough to make many of us forget about the bad news and think about the delicious flavor party happening in our mouths. Unfortunately, the only way this message could have gotten worse is if it turned out the middle was a balloon, and the entire thing exploded.
There is no nice way to tell the one you love that you’re moving away. However, this breakup was taken to a new level when it turned out that one of them was moving halfway around the world. The worst part? There is a little too much emphasis on the part about moving alone.
Sending a message to the wrong number can have brutal consequences
Just when it looked as though things couldn’t get any worse – they did. There is sometimes nothing worse than sending a text to the wrong person. It always seems to be the embarrassing ones that we want to keep private that somehow end up on their way to someone else. That was the case for one person when they accidentally sent a message to their wife.
They almost got away with their accidental message. That was until their wife put two and two together and figured out there was only one person who could have been on the receiving end of that message. Hopefully, they managed to have the rest of the conversation face to face rather than through text messages.
Leaving a breakup note on someone’s car is bordering on brutal
If you want to leave your mark on someone who’s broken your heart, you need to find a way to let the world know the truth. That was the case for someone when they discovered their partner had been wandering about town rather than staying faithful to their relationship. If they wanted to enjoy everyone else’s company, then why not tell the world what they’re like?
All they needed was a can of paint and an opportunity to strike. Sadly for the car owner, there was no way to hide this message as it shouted the truth to the neighborhood. Even driving it to the shop to get it resprayed ran the risk of exposing the truth to onlookers on the way.
Plastic wrap and cars don’t mix well when it comes to exes
Not all heartbroken exes want to damage their ex-partner’s things or make their life a misery. Some merely want to leave a lasting reminder that they messed with the wrong person. Someone was so impressed with one person’s handiwork that they took to social media to share the revenge. Sure, it probably took a long time, but was it worth it?
Knowing their ex probably had to spend ages unwrapping their car before they could head home likely made this worth all the effort to their ex. As if having a car completely covered in plastic wrap wasn’t harsh enough already, they couldn’t even drive away as they’d wrapped their car to the lamp post. This is some well-thought-out revenge.
One hilarious breakup note shows how some people spend their vacations
Not many of us get to enjoy postcards anymore. It can be an exciting day when one arrives in the mail. Of course, it can also be enough to spark a little bit of envy as we read about our friends and family having a great time on vacation while we’re stuck at home. This postcard was none of those things.
Oh no, it turns out it’s actually a hilarious breakup note that takes the sting out of the entire thing. While their now ex-partner was enjoying some time under the sun, they were left to pick up the pieces of their broken heart. The more we think about it, the more we realize this breakup note might be more brutal than we first thought.
This woman took everything she could before leaving her brutal breakup message
Why do something by halves when you could take it all the way instead? If there’s one thing you don’t want to do, it’s apparently get on the wrong side of Nikki – not that we’re sure we can blame her for being so angry. It turns out that Dave had been busy in his spare time, and now his tangled love life was about to come crashing down.
While we may never know how Nikki learned the truth, we know that she had a plan up her sleeve. All Nikki needed was some time to clear the entire bank account and find somewhere to stay before leaving her message. No super strength cleaner will be enough to erase this message from people’s minds.
The personals are one way to get someone’s attention as you move on
Some people leave us with no choice but to make a point. That appeared to be the case for this person. We guess that Kevin didn’t want to accept that things were over, and their ex-partner had moved on. Most of us glance over the personals in the newspaper. However, it might be time to pay a little more attention to the back section just in case we miss a very public breakup note.
If this didn’t get Kevin’s attention, we’re not sure what would anymore. Maybe it’s time to hire a plane and get some skywriting to make sure Kevin gets the message? A flying banner? A barbershop quartet? Something would have to get through to Kevin eventually.
Some people want to ensure their breakup notes is loud and clear
Many of us know our way around a keyboard without even realizing it. That’s what happens when you spend the majority of your life chained to your desk. Even if we don’t remember every letter on the thing, we’re pretty sure we know that “I hate you” isn’t typically found on most qwerty keyboards. That was all thanks to one scorned ex.
It seems they really wanted to make sure their ex-fiancé got the message. We’re not sure we want to know what happened to the rest of the missing letters. The note on the keyboard was one thing. Add onto that what looks like a house key and an engagement ring, and there’s no mistaking this person was done with the relationship.
Leaving a sign in the window tells everyone the relationship is through
What happens when you want to break up with your partner, but you don’t want to tell them to their face? It might be time to take a leaf out of this person’s book and leave a sign in the window. What started as bad news for one unlucky individual quickly became a hilarious talking point for the rest of the town.
We just can’t help but wonder what the person behind the sign was thinking. Were they going to sit and wait for their ex-beloved to walk past, or did they plan on calling them over and hoping they saw the sign before they made it to the front door? We guess it would be pretty hard to miss this one.
Hilarious breakup notes can be written at any age
Love can strike when we least expect it. We could be walking through the aisles at the grocery store or minding our own business on the subway when Cupid pulls back his bow and hits us with our beloved. This person was just a youngster when they learned what it’s like to fall head over heels for someone.
Sadly for them, they also realized that love isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Although they might have still been learning how to read and write, this youngster already knew everything they needed to pen a perfectly hilarious breakup note. We’re just glad that someone found the letter and shared it with the rest of the world. It looks like that told Cole.
A treasure hunt with a difference taught one unfaithful person
Being in love with someone can mean going above and beyond to add a little joy to someone’s lives. Treasure hunt, anyone? Unfortunately for the person on the receiving end, this was a treasure hunt with a difference. They were about to take a walk down memory lane as they enjoyed all the places where they’d shared memorable moments with their lover.
The twist? The hunt was all about collecting their personal things. It turns out that people can get pretty creative when their heart has been broken. They might want to get their running shoes on and decide what means the most to them as there was a good chance other people were taking their stuff as they spoke.
It can be tough to decide who gets the dog in a breakup
It’s one thing to find your beloved has walked out of your life. It’s another to learn they have taken the dog with them, too. It seems that Brenda and Mark were once enjoying a great life together as they moved in with each other and even welcomed a four-legged friend into their lives. Sadly, things all came crashing down.
Not only had Mark upped and left, but he had taken their pet with them. If his note is right, then the dog probably wasn’t mad about starting a new life away from Brenda. We wonder how many other people read this note before Brenda finally got home and realized that everything was gone? Hopefully, for Brenda’s sake, not many.
This person knew who was to blame for the end of the relationship
Even though each breakup means something different to everyone, and we all have our own reasons, there are a few favorite lines that have been used time and time again. “Things have changed,” “There are plenty more fish in the sea,” and “It’s not you, it’s me” have made more than a few appearances over the years.
That was almost the case with this breakup note. Someone had gone to all the effort of baking a cake for their partner only to use it as the perfect way to break the news. To top it off, they turned things around and blamed their ex-partner for everything. As if all of that wasn’t enough, they even decorated their chocolate cake with blueberries. Monster.
Make sure you both have the same news before sharing too much
We’re starting to think things were a lot better when people had to talk to one another, and they couldn’t hide behind their phones. Sadly, that was the case for one person as they received this pretty brutal breakup message. There are times in our lives when we need to break the news to someone just like ripping off a bandaid – quick and painless.
While one of them thought it could be time to take things to the next level, the other was wondering if it was time to move on from their relationship. What would have happened if they replied “No”? After all, they asked the question. Surely they were allowed to reply with any response that they liked?
Someone wanted to make their breakup as public and harsh as possible
Jennifer must have done something pretty bad to get a hilarious yet harsh breakup note like this. Not only did someone decide to play with her emotions, but they placed their signs at the edge of the road for the entire world to see. Hopefully, Jennifer knew that something was up when she got to the “Just kidding” sign.
If not, the next one could have hurt more than it should. It wasn’t long before Jennifer had a long list of things to do. Firstly, she needed to find someone to get rid of those signs – and fast. Then, it was time to recover from the breakup before finding somewhere to live. At least they let her stay for six days, right?
The list of things to like about coffee wins this race
Let’s face it; there are plenty of things to love about coffee. The smell of a fresh pot of coffee brewing in the kitchen can be all many of us need to float out of bed and start the day off on the right foot. Feeling sad? Have some coffee. Need a boost of energy? Have some coffee. Need to warm up? We think you get the point…
This person had so many things they loved about coffee that they listed them out and finished it all with a doodle of the good stuff. Sadly, the same couldn’t be said when it came to things they liked about their ex-partner. Not even one good thing came to mind as they broke things off.
One person wanted rid of everything, including their unfaithful wife
This is one of those times when the sign can mean two very different things, depending on how you read it. It seems someone wasn’t thinking about how their sign looked to passersby when they announced the sale to the neighborhood. We guess their mind was occupied by something else at the time.
We think we can guess just what was on the market at this garage sale. Did it happen to come in the form of everything their wife owned and loved? The sale was enough for people in the neighborhood to grab themselves a bargain, while the gossips in the group could get a good laugh out of the sign. The question is: how much stuff was sold before she got home?
This guy used Transformation Tuesday in an entirely new way
If you’ve been on social media in the last decade, the chances are you’ve spotted a popular weekly trend. That’s right; we’re talking about Transformation Tuesday. People from around the world get to share how far they’ve come with anyone and everyone as a way to celebrate their success. It can be anything from weight loss to a career change and everything in between.
We think it’s safe to say this is the first time we’ve seen someone use it as a hilarious way to break up with their partner. Can you spot the difference? Their now ex-girlfriend sure could as she quickly wanted to know if it was true. It’s usually best to tell your partner before announcing a split to the world.
Knock-knock jokes might not be the best way to end a relationship
Just because you want to end a relationship doesn’t always mean you want things to end on bad terms. That was the case for one person when they decided they’d had enough and wanted to call things off. The problem? They didn’t know how to do it without making their ex-partner get upset. That was until they came up with a plan.
All they needed to do was make a joke out of the entire thing – kind of. What was supposed to be a simple way to break up with their loved one quickly became a little confusing. Their partner thought it was all a harsh joke only to find out it was the complete opposite – all at nearly midnight.
Buying a drink from Starbucks can apparently be a sign of love
When we think of funny moments in time, the chances are that breakups aren’t the first thing that comes to mind. Hopefully, it wasn’t long before this pair realized things were a little laughable. It can be tough to break up with someone when you have to see them every day. That’s usually the case for young love as they have to spend the rest of their time at school with their ex-partner.
Love can mean something different to everyone, and according to one person in this relationship, that was buying someone a drink from Starbucks. That’s enough to show someone you care, right? Now, they’ll have to find someone else to buy a sweet treat as this relationship was through.
Some people can’t help but share their opinions with others
It’s not just people in a relationship that know how to leave hilarious breakup notes for one another. It appears that one neighbor had enough of a fighting couple and wanted to add their opinion to the mix. After all, if the couple was going to argue so loudly, it only seemed fair that everyone else got a say on the matter.
Sure, it’s normal for people to argue every now and then. However, something pretty bad must’ve happened for this neighbor to suggest there was no choice but for the pair to go their separate ways. To make matters even more hilarious, they signed their note from “The Residents of Chicago,” implying they were loud enough for the entire city to hear.
