Breakups Worse Than Carrie’s Post It Note
Carrie Bradshaw; best known for her impeccable taste in shoes, cocktails and god awful taste in sexual partners.
For some reason, Bradshaw was able to get away with discussing her terrible life decisions for entire episodes – and we all suffered, through 20-something-minute episodes, listening to her incessant rambles on the matter.
Once again, I’m assuming that the mass population has watched or even heard about the episode of Sex and The City, where Carrie is essentially mugged off, via a sticky note. If you haven’t, here’s the breakdown: Carrie Bradshaw, who is the shows main focus, is dating Jack Berger an out-of-work author at the time. She wakes up one morning, strolls over to her laptop only to find a post-it note that reads “I’m sorry. I can’t. Don’t hate me”.
But here’s the thing, I truly believe there are breakups a hell of a lot worse than Carrie’s post-it note. Though an unforgettable and pretty inventive way to end things with someone, it’s understatedly not the worst and I’m here to prove just that. So, I’ve collated a ton of breakups topping Bradshaw’s yellow note.
The Snapchat Dumping… Yep, you read right
“We were snapping back and forth and he said something I didn’t find funny, so naturally I said something like “lol ok”. He messaged me shortly after on the app and said “let’s just end this” and I guess that was the end of that relationship…”
This inconsiderate asshole…
“This was back in the day of radio, before social media. I was doing an afternoon drive radio show in a major market, when the guy I was dating decided to end the relationship 10 minutes before I was going to be talking to millions of people! I had to compartmentalise that experience until I got home later, but it was not easy! What a jerk!”
This cheating coward…
“I was told to my face he was ending it because I had just been diagnosed with depression. Then I went back to the flat and my flatmates informed me that he had been going back to the dorms of another girl. The Depression reason was an excuse which was pretty horrific.”
And this kind of hilarious ending to a night…
“I dumped him and he was living at my flat at the time but it was like midnight when we finished talking it through, so he had to spend the night. I was in the bed, under the covers and he slept on top of the covers because I wouldn’t let him actually sleep in the bed alongside me. I didn’t want him to touch me, because he was an asshole. But I’m nice and didn’t want to throw him out on street. So yeah…. I mean, he had a blanket”
This dumping with a view…
“My ex-boyfriend took me to the top of the shard in London to tell me that he didn’t want to be with me anymore and said that I had to dinner with him at Oblix to find out why. Obviously I wasn’t going to turn down free food and found out that he was breaking up with me because I had “too much drama in my life” – my parents and I were in a near fatal car accident.”
When you know, you know apparently…
“I was dumped by my fella over the phone for a girl he’d known for two weeks!! He’d been away on a few holidays while we were together and it was completely fine, we’d message back and forth every day. A few days into this holiday, as usual he rang me saying how much he missed me and wished I was there with him. It was so sweet. But a week into his getaway, I received a message saying ‘we need to talk’. He called me shortly after and said he’d met someone new and that he wanted to be with her instead…”
And finally, when cute became uh.. not so cute…
“I had to end it with my boyfriend because he became really obsessive. At first it was really flattering and made me feel pretty good. He’d turn up at my workplace to surprise me for lunch etc. But shortly after, he turned into a bit of a stalker and would just stand outside my work place all day, it was really creepy. He even threatened to shave all my hair off so that no one else would want me. That was the final straw, I had to leave him, change my number and all of my social passwords!”
