If the internet has taught us anything, it's that people will do almost anything to avoid an awkward face-to-face breakup.
Below, 12 of the laziest breakups we've ever had the displeasure to see. Read 'em and weep.
The status change breakup:
Facebook: Making breakups too easy since 2004.
The "Batman"-plagiarized text:
Alfred would be so ashamed.
The Post-it note breakup:
Ripping breakup lines from "Sex and the City" isn't any better than that "Batman"-inspired business above.
The drive-by-drop-off breakup:
We've never wanted to mutter "kids these days" under our breath more than we do right now.
The roadside breakup:
We hesitate to call this a lazy breakup; the guy did have to walk a few steps to post each sign.
The wham-bam-thank-you-m'am breakup:
One thing is for sure: He or she is not getting a call back.
The bar sign breakup:
Drive by for the divorce, stop in for the conciliatory beer -- or eight.
The #TransformationTuesday breakup:
Apparently, this Instagram post was a joke. But you know some 13-year-old punk is going to do this for real one day, thereby bringing shame to his whole family.
The free-pizza-with-breakup breakup:
Lazy, but also pretty darn thoughtful.
The free-cake-with-breakup breakup:
Now you're just making it hard for us to judge you, lazy dumpers.
The gamer breakup:
The get-the-hint-already breakup:
Breakup texts are inherently lazy. Breakup texts that force your S.O. to solve a puzzle are lazy and cruel.
