This New Company Offers Break-Up Services on Your Behalf
News that a relationship is over is often hard for the person receiving it, but it can also be difficult for the person who has to deliver it. A new company called The Breakup Shop understands that situation can be dicey, so it is offering a range of services for guys and girls who want to sever the link, but can't necessarily handle the dirty work.

The Breakup Shop's catalog of services, which are completely real, according to The Atlantic, are divided into two categories: Breakups and Gifts For Exes. The dumper can choose between having the company send a text, a standard or custom letter, an email, or an old-fashioned phone call to inform their soon-to-be ex that the ship has sailed—and they're being left at the dock. The options start at $10 for a text or email and go up to $40 for a rushed custom letter.
If the dumper is the compassionate type, he or she can also use the Gifts For Exes collection to send over a DVD of The Notebook (2004), Netflix gift cards, rainbow cookies, Call of Duty: Ghosts for PS4 or Xbox One, or a pair of wine glasses. There is also a "Breakup Gift Box" for $80 that includes all of the above (with one of the media options), a sympathy letter, and the "comforting gift box" with a broken-heart graphic on the side.
