People Reveal The Rudest Ways Someone Broke Up With Them

It's never the right time to say goodbye. But some people really just take it to the extreme. In some cases, it's so over the top that it sticks out in your memory as a giant question mark. Why were you so rude to me, person?

elephantqueen14 asked Reddit:

What is the rudest way someone has ended a relationship with you?

These are some of the craziest stories Reddit had.

Yes, You Did

Changed his status to being in a relationship with another person. When I called him and asked him about it, he asked, "I didn't lead you on did I?". Rude and lame.

I Could Have Another You In A Minute

The landlord called me to verify I would take over the lease of our house, since the lease was in my boyfriend his name. I told him I didn't know what he meant by that. He then proceeded to show me texts my boyfriend had sent him in which he said he was engaged and just moved to another city and that I would take over his lease. I had just moved in two weeks prior, quit my job and terminated my own lease.

To say I was pissed off is an understatement. Not only cheat on me, but actually letting your landlord break up with me? What the actual f-ck.

So the next day I packed up the whole house including everything he owns and I put it in storage. Only time I heard from him was when he called me after a couple of days furiously asking me where all his stuff was. I just laughed and hung up. Go f-ck yourself. Or your wife. The hell I care


She just kept sleeping with different people until I left.


Her friend answered the phone, I said "Is Emma there?"

Friend: "No she's with her boyfriend at the moment."

Me: "Oh."

What Goes Around

Someone I know broke up with his gf by just ignoring her until she got the hint. He did it because she was "too fat" and he had just been with her because he was lonely.

He had another one later. He was happy with her until he met her family. Her mother and grandmother were "too fat", so he judged that she would probably get fat as well, so... He ignored her until she got the hint.

He had a third one. He was very happy with her, she was pretty and exactly what he imagined. She wanted him to go to her place sometimes but he was lazy and just wanted her to always go to him (he lived with his parents). She ignored him until he got the hint.

Too Many Lies

When his other secret girlfriend tagged him in a picture of the ultrasound.

Backwards Logic

I had a boyfriend intentionally cheat on me because he wanted me to break up with him instead of doing it himself.

He had sex with a coworker because it was easier than telling me he wasn't interested anymore.

It's Been Awhile

My boyfriend of 1.5 years ghosted me. Just suddenly dropped off the face of the planet and wouldn't respond to my texts, calls, whatever. I knew he was okay because I saw him on Facebook with his new girlfriend.

The best part was when he randomly emailed me, months later, saying he "just wasn't feeling it anymore" with me. No sh-t, dude.

Worst Possible Time

By changing his relationship status on Facebook. It was my 21st birthday. 10 years later and it still pisses me off that I wasted so much time on that a**hole.

Truly An Evil Gesture

I was in the hospital, 3 hours away from home. After a month I was released and my mom and aunt came to pick me up. On the rode home, I used my mom's phone to text my boyfriend that I was coming home and he could come over. His response- I'm sorry. I can't take the stress of caring for you after your incident.

I was shot in the face by a 9 mm Ruger. He never "took care" of me before the incident. He quit his job and lived with me. I took care of him. What had actually happen is he came to the hospital once while I was still in the coma. My face was swollen and I was unrecognizable. He never came back afterwards. He assumed I would stay like that and didn't want to date an ugly person.

Just Be Honest

Having the guy she was cheating on me with confess their affair and tell me it was over between us.

I feel like I came out on top though. Shortly after this they got pregnant and she had to drop out of college for engineering. I transferred to a different university and had some of the best times of my life while finishing my degree. I don't really believe in karma, but it was kind of odd how quickly her life took a turn after that scummy move.

Right Before The Test

My last college gf broke up with me during finals week via email. She knew I had an exam that afternoon. I have no idea if it was intentional or not, but she sent the email about 20 minutes before the exam started. By a cruel twist of fate, I opened the email just as I was about to start walking to my class to take said exam, basically telling me she is leaving me for someone else.

It was not a very good day.

Such A To-Do

Sends e-mail to me saying that I need to think long-term.

Two weeks later, moves to town (we had been dating long distance).

The day she arrives, I meet her at her new place, she says she's too tired to move anything in or do anything, and wants to go to bed, and sends me home alone.

Won't respond to texts, won't hang out with me, won't do anything over the next few days.

After a few weeks I ask her what happened, and for an explanation. Her response, "I feel like I've already told you."


Sweet Revenge

His other girlfriend walked in on us cuddling in his bed naked watching a movie. I didnt know abot her, she didnt know about me. The fact that he chased her out of the house to explian "it's not what it looks like" after we had literally just had sex the hour before was all the confirmation I needed that I was the lesser option.

She found me on fb and her and I became friends. She had dated him a YEAR and I had been seeing him a month. We both cut ties.

No Need To Fake It

Our relationship was already strained and we were living together at the time. She was complaining for days that her arm was sore and I slept on the couch in the living room to give her as much room as possible to stretch out on the bed in the bedroom. Woke up one night and heard her talking on the phone. She was talking freely to her new boyfriend on the phone and faked her arm injury to just get me out of the room. We hadn't even formally broken up yet, and I hadn't moved my stuff out yet.

Snapchat And Meth: A Tale Of Caution

A handwritten note sent over Snapchat that didn't have any real explanation. It was like vague-booking method of breakup. This was literally minutes before the end of school, when I would normally see her off to her bus. Maybe she wanted to hand me the note but couldn't bring herself to. Maybe she wanted to text it to me but didn't wanna get in trouble for using her phone in class. Maybe she didn't wanna put it off. Definitely didn't have it in her to tell me in person. Either way, the way it was done just seemed to be an insincere waste of both of our time. A few years later she did apologize about the way it was done, but she was high on meth, so there's that too.


I had lunch with a coworker today and he was telling me about how his most recent relationship ended....

Apparently the other guy she was with was infertile so once she got pregnant, she said "thanks for your sperm donation" and ended it. He had to pay child support for the first two years until he got full custody.

7 Years

Drove over an hour in a snowstorm the day before Valentine's Day so we can spend the holiday together. I got her flowers, card, and a gift she gives me nothing and I think she might have a surprise for me so I say nothing. Well she did, the next morning on Valentine's Day she breaks up with me because as she says I'm too nice. She gives no other explanation then that even though I pressed her for one. That was after 7 years of dating.


Stopped responding to me.

I was driving 4 hours both ways once a week to see him. In fact, I'd been down to his school to see him the week we broke things off. Everything seemed fine. Then silence. After 5 days of not getting an answer via phone, text, or snap I was pissed and sent a final message saying I was done. He'd had issues with leaving his phone at the bar before so I wasn't completely upset at first. Just figured he'd get a new one or it was just taking him a while to find it. But almost a week? Never mind the fact that I was already suspicious he was seeing other people. Guess who ever he chose was closer and better than me. I don't talk to anyone that's more than 40 minutes away from me now.

Paris Holds The Key

He waited until we got home from a trip to Paris (he'd always wanted to go) and told me as we were unpacking that he didn't love me and didn't want to be with me.

He'd known for a while, but his therapist had told him to go on the trip to Paris first to "check if it changed things ".

Yea, sure she did honey. Sure she did.

Mind you, this was the same guy that insisted we go to couples therapy because I didn't want an open relationship and so there was OBVIOUSLY something wrong with me, so y'know.. the clues were there.

Now that college has become a standard requirement for so many jobs and careers, there is a massive push by high schools to get their graduating students accepted and enrolled at an undergraduate college.

On the whole, that's undoubtedly a great thing. A more educated workforce will be prepared to solve the most complex issues facing human beings in the next several decades.

*The following article contains discussion of suicide/self-harm.

The person on the other end of a 911 call has a truly remarkable job.

For those who don't play that professional role, we hope to never encounter the 911 call interaction. But if we do find ourselves making that call, the moment is an anomaly in our lives.

The chaos, the panic, the racing heart, and the desperation are all emotions we, ideally, don't experience on a regular basis.

But for the operator on the other end, our call is one in a long line of calls they've received all day, and all the workdays before that one.

It's difficult to imagine being embedded in those uniquely urgent, emergency moments all the time.

Some Redditors who are on the other end of that call shared their experiences on the job.

WhimsicalxxButcher asked, "911 dispatchers what has been your most creepy/unnerving call?"

For a few, the most unnerving moments were the calm callers.

There was something just so eerie about how level-headed the faceless human being on the other end could be through such a desperate, tragic moment.

Almost Clinical 

"I had a friend who worked as a 911 dispatcher and he always said the worst call he ever had was a ~20 year old kid who committed suicide by mixing a bunch of chemicals together in his car to produce hydrogen sulfide gas."

"He said that the most unnerving part was hearing him calmly listing off the chemicals, the type of gas produced, and the effects of hydrogen sulfide on the body (namely the almost instant death it causes at high concentrations)."

"He ended the call by providing the address of the parking lot he was in and saying that nobody should approach the vehicle without hazmat equipment."

"Apparently after that there was a whooshing sound as he dumped the last chemical into the mix, and then the line went dead silent aside for a quiet fizzing noise."

"I know that call screwed him up because he almost never talks about stuff that happens to him on the job. He quit a few months later to go into construction management, and frankly I can't blame him."

-- iunoyou

Planned Out 

"A woman called me, saying she was going to kill herself. She was gassing herself. Gave me her name & address then said she was just going to lie down and 'go to sleep.' And stopped responding to me."

"I kept the line open, trying to get her to speak to me, and eventually heard officers forcing their way in to find her body. I guess she just wanted someone to find her body."

-- mozgw4

Before It Set In 

"When I got a call from a 6 year old who got home from school and laid down to take a nap with his dad. His dad never woke up."

"The kid was so calm when calling it broke my heart."

"I ended up leaving dispatch shortly after. I was good at compartmentalizing the job for the year I was doing it, but it would've broken me in the long run."

-- tasha7712

Other 911 operators were unfortunate enough to receive a call from the very last person they wanted to hear from: a loved one.

These dispatchers' unique position gave them the unexpected access to a family member or friend at their most dire moments.

No More of That 

"My family member is a long time first responder, and 'retired' into doing dispatch. He heard the address (someone else was taking the call) and realized it was his daughter's house."

"He rushed over there just in time to see them wheeling her body out. Overdose."

"Five months later, he was called to his ex-wife's place because his grandson (son of the daughter who recently passed) had his door locked, lights on, but wasn't responding to his grandma."

"He broke the door down and found him deceased in bed. Overdose."

"He's very stoic after years of all sorts of traumatic situations but my heart hurts whenever I think of what all of this must have felt like. Like sand through your fingers."

-- bitchyhouseplant

Knowing the Address

"Not me, but my grandma. I was sitting in the dispatch office, (very small one only 2 dispatchers including my grandma) but she put out a dispatch that there was a gun shot from my best friends address."

"My heart sank to my stomach and broke later that day. He committed suicide."

-- OntaiSenpuu

When it Happened 

"My uncle passing away. Worked as a small town dispatcher for a year or so. Had a bunch of messed up stuff happen on shift, but this call came in in the still hours of the night. Small town, so not many calls after midnight."

"I answered and recognized the name and address on caller id. Aunt was in a frenzy so didn't recognize my voice. I remained calm and got ems and fire rolling to them, but by my aunt's own words he was already blue."

"I went thru debriefing and mandated therapy for a couple other things that happened, but never really talked to anyone about this. I just try not to think about it."

"That was the call I figured out I needed to find a different job."

-- dangitjon

Finally, some simply had a front row seat to sudden tragedy.

These operators were flies on the wall when disaster struck. They never asked to witness what they witnessed, but sometimes that came with the territory.

A Holiday Tragedy 

"My mom is a 911 dispatcher. Early on she said one Christmas Eve while working she got a call from an elderly lady who's husband had just collapsed(and died) from a heart attack and in the background Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas music was playing on blast."

"The lady was screaming and crying and begging for her husband to wake up but my mom could hear his gurgling in his last breathes. She doesn't listen to or watch Alvin and the chipmunks since."

-- Blueflowerbluehair

What is it About Christmas?

"Christmas night. 911 call with crying child on the other end. A neighbor had run her car over her mom during a domestic."

"The mom crawled to the porch bleeding and the child saw the car coming back. I had her hide quietly in a closet with the cordless phone."

"The 10 year old child was crying and screamed that she hated Christmas. She was afraid of the police when they got there."

"I kept her on the phone until she felt safe enough to give the phone to an officer. I almost fainted after that call was over. Had nightmares for a while."

-- 2FunBoofer

Close to Home 

"Not a dispatcher but I handle radio communications for the Coast Guard. One night I was on the radio and got a call from an 11 year old kid whose boat had started to sink. He was out with his dad and 6 year old brother."

"They had been hit by another boat and his father got knocked unconscious. I remember the entire conversation up until the radio had gone underwater."

"They ended up finding his dad floating on his back alive but the two boys didn't make it. That one really fu**ed with me because my two littlest brothers were around the same age as the youngest."

-- HIRSH2243

A Horrible Clock 

"Another one that stays with me was the man who called in. It was the anniversary of his adult son having hanged himself. He'd now come home to find his wife had done the same."

"That date is always going to be a black day for him."

-- mozgw4

If you or someone you know is struggling, you can contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

To find help outside the United States, the International Association for Suicide Prevention has resources available at

Again, we hope you never have to use the 911 call in your life. Nobody wants to be involved in a sudden emergency or a tragic incident.

But hopefully, if you do, an operator like one of these thoughtful, sensitive Redditors is on the other end.

When I was moving on from middle school to high school my parents had me tested for the "gifted" program. By some miracle I passed and was accepted. And then I turned it down. Everyone was irritated. "This will pave the way for any college you want! You'll learn so much!" his path will set you up for life!" Every adult tried valiantly to sell me this merchandise but in my gut I just wasn't buying it. So I "settled" a level below, merely advanced classes. And upon reflection... it was the best choice I ever made.

Redditor u/dauntlessdaisy was wondering how far some in life got by asking... For those of you who were considered "gifted" in school, what are you doing with your life now?
