5 Wacky Ways To End A Relationship!

The Umbrella Tactic
Ahhh, the good old umbrella game. Know that there's rain on the way, things are heading down the tubes, and need an easy, non-confrontational out? Simply write, "It's over" on the outside of an umbrella, and sign your name at the bottom. Someone has got to stop your soon-to-be-ex sooner or later to ask what it means, right?
The Lunchtime Goodbye
Is there anything better than a packed lunch? Hmm, well maybe one that doesn't include a breakup note. Offer to make your boo his final meal (without him knowing) and make a special afternoon treat complete with "reasons" why it's over. Things you can include: Sour grapes, spoiled milk, stale bread, an "I'm over this" note.
Two Words: Saran Wrap
TELL me someone you know has done this. Person A is frustrated with Person B, so they go out and spend $10 on cheap saran wrap and completely wrap Person B's car under the cover of darkness. Person B heads out to go to work the next morning, and they see their bundled vehicle.
In a breakup scenario, I suggest leaving a note that says, "I'm not just pranking you. Unwrap your car, get in it, and don't come home."
The Deskside Message
Too afraid to say "I'm out" in person? Send a letter to his office. Much less awkward for you, and much more entertaining for his coworkers. Possibly.
Got some extra cash lying around? Probably not. Would it not be epic, though, to cut ties with a fling overan ad on primetime local TV? Say you know he's embarrassingly into watching a local cable access station while he makes dinner Monday through Wednesday before his kickboxing class. Put together a little segment, make a few calls, and BAM. Instant "Wait, is this REALLY happening?"
