Having discovered yesterday why people break up, we now turn to how. Well, how some people break up, or more specifically how to effect a break up if you are not prepared, or don't know how, to do it yourself. The answer, according to this article in Time, is to get someone to do it for you, and it seems that there is no shortage of people willing to take on the task, for a small fee. Take, for example, iDUMP4U, "the website where we do all the dirty work for you!" They'll do a 'basic breakup' for $10, an engagement breakup for $25 and even a divorce breakup, for $50. For your money, they'll make the 'breakup call', record it, and even post it to YouTube if you wish. Nice.
Alternatively, how about the iPhone app Erase Ur X? This 'can be used to create a form e-mail sent from your iPhone that breaks the news to your soon-to-be-ex', after which the app deletes the now-ex's number from your phone. You can also save the message, along with any attached audio files and photos, 'for later use on other X's'. Brilliant!
Do I see a business opportunity for all of those soon-to-be-out-of-work legal aid lawyers?
