I Dump 4 U?

Just when I thought I'd heard it all, a new one comes my way. There is actually a relationship breakup service for those who don't have the kahoonas to do it themselves. It's called I Dump 4 U and for $10, this online service will make the phone call to break up with your girlfriend/boyfriend for you. For $25, you can have someone break your engagement with a phone call, and for a mere $50 you can arrange a call to your spouse announcing that you want a divorce! Below is a recording of one of their service calls. (If you enjoy this one, there are many more on their website?)



If their fees are just a little rich for your wallet YouBrokeUpHow will do the same for $10, $20, and $40. This disclaimer appears on the website:

Humans are emotional beings, with that in mind we are unable to predict how someone will re-act to any given situation. When breaking up with someone it can be a very trying time in someone's life. You agree that YOUBROKEUPHOW.com, its owners and all affiliated with the 'SITE' are not responsible for any damage or harm that may come to you and your property when dumping a person using our service. If you feel afraid or threatened to due any form of 'ABUSE' you should contact the proper authorities. By submitting this form you allow YOUBROKEUPHOW.com to send an email on your behalf.

Another company, MooseJaw Breakup Service will even post the call on UTube, so you can savor the moment, I guess. Make sure your volume is at the maximum when you play the video, as it is a little difficult to hear.



And then there's AU REVOIR. this company will handle break ups, or any bad news. Got an STD and are shy about telling your partner? Au Revoir will do it. Married, but want to break up with your mistress? Au Revoir will do it. Children have something they are afraid to tell their parents? Au Revoir will do it. Breaking it off with your partner? Au Revoir will not only make that break up phone call, they will send a parting gift such as a fruit basket, a manicure/pedicure gift certificate, or a teddy bear!



Maybe you haven't reached that point in your relationship; maybe you don't have a relationship. You're at a bar and some guyor gal hits on you and asks for your phone number. If you don't want them to call you, but don't have the heart to say so, there now is a Rejection Hotline which provides phone numbers in each state which you can give to the guy or gal. When he or she calls, he/she gets a recorded message letting them know they have been rejected, possible reasons why, and a suggestion that they get over it! (It's worth going to that site and getting the hotline number for your state and calling...the message is humorous!)


I suppose in this age of online dating services, it was inevitable that these types of service would spring up. After all, nothing says you care like a call from a stranger saying, "It's over. " 




It seems Paul, there are now 51 ways to leave your lover!




I'm now kicking myself that I didn't think of it first.  Apparently there is money to be made!  Entrepreneurship is alive and well in the USA!

What happened to just using a Post It note to break up with someone?

DJan said...

Yes, there are now at LEAST 51 ways to leave your lover. What a hoot! Unless you're the recipient, I guess.

Mr. Stupid said...

Now that is just weird and crazy. Who creates a website to dump people? The Internet sure is getting creepy.

Brian Miller said...

see now you really need to get on your hangers idea before they steal that too...this is sadly hilarious...

My name is PJ. said...

Pulsipher is hilarious (comment 1)

Wouldn't you think it was a prank? I sure would!

R. J. said...

Cowards R Us. I marvel that anyone would pay for such a service. If they are afraid, a restraining order says enough.

Mesina said...

Well, there goes the good ol days of getting drunk and calling your boyfriend in a drunken state to tell him what a bad kisser he is and that BobJohn has stolen your heart.

Im gonna miss that....

jules said...

That is just terrible. And taking "no need to discuss much" to a whole new level.

Debbie said...

I am all for making money off of crazy people willing to throw it away but I don't think I could do this! People are beyond my comprehension. Apparently, there is a severe kahoonas shortage out there.

Pat said...

Sheesh! Am I the only one who read the title of this post and thought it was about pooping? Maybe because I'm a little "stopped up".

Anypoop, talk about having no balls....it's bad enough to break up over the phone, but to have SOMEBODY ELSE break up over the phone is beyond unbelievable.

Yeah, it's true, there is a sucker born every minute!

Steven Anthony said...

well the person using the service may not have balls, but it must take huger ones to be one of the operators....

Jen said...

And I thought "Dear John" letters were a sad way to break up!This tells us that there are quite a number of COWARDS in this country, if one can not speak in person , or even on the telephone, to end a relationship{?} ....wow, scarry times.!! Meanwhile the jokers on this sight are making money!

Eva Gallant said...

Jen: I guess "Dear John" is a thing of the past.

Steven: They have the annonymity of being on the phone, but still!

Jules: That's the truth!

ethelmaepotter! said...

Is this stuff for real???!!!!

Honestly, is there ANY WAY one can't make money these days? Well, yes apparently there is - blogging! Unless we want to blog about sex and drugs and depravity and offer services for such. tut tut.

So now we've got:

Slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy
Hop on the bus, Gus
Just drop off the key, Lee

and...
You've been had by Brad.

Rose said...

I get tired of some company developing for a strange reason as this. Where is the ADULT in us to face issues with other adults.

injaynesworld said...

This is the most hysterical thing I've ever heard. God bless the American entrepreneurial spirit!

Eva Gallant said...

Jayne: It is hysterical...and the craziest part is that people are ussing the service apparently. These places look like they have call centers set up!

bettyl said...

Oh, dear!! Whatever happened to owning up to your own stuff and doing it yourself?!! That's a fun post!
