Breaking up is hard to do, as is finding love. When we're searching for love we're on our best game. And when we find the stranger who gives us the butterflies, we want to put all of our charm and wit on display. So we often come up with the best lines to win over our conquest. But what if we kept that charm going once we realized this love is toxic and dead? There can be some... humorous ways to end relations.


For fun, Redditor u/ginogeneli was wondering what the outcome would be if we compared notes about the the things we say in the beginning and the end of a relationship... they asked... If people used "break-up lines" instead of "pick-up lines", what would some of the best ones be?

You know how you're good with your hands? Well, they will come in handy when you are single.

You make me feel like an airline because I'm about to lose your baggage.

NICE.

"Call me United Airlines, 'cause I'm about to dump your baggage," maybe? I dunno.

Some people on Ask Reddit shared where they work and what they do based on these constraints.

The results ended up being very fun.

Redditor Lost_Borealian invited workers to express themselves:

"Writing only in Haiku, what do you do for work?"

Can you guess where they work based on their poem?

Sometimes, it's not that complicated.

Sometimes, you wish the whole world would just take a second and chill out and really just look at something in its barest essence.

Look, there's a reason brands don't often choose radical honesty as a marketing tactic when it comes to their slogans.

There aren't a lot of companies that could get away with just telling it like it is - but we can!
