Behold, The 12 Laziest Breakups Of All Time

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:

Ooh, hittin' him where it hurts.

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.
