They say breaking up is hard to do, but “they” obviously haven’t heard of The Breakup Shop. For only $10, this Canada-based company will provide you with the very unique service of breaking up with your significant other for you via email or text. If that sounds too harsh and cold, don’t worry. You can upgrade to a one-minute phone call with the breakup artist for a slightly larger $29 price point. Or, if you want to breakup with significant other in a style that blends Benjamin Franklin with a cowardly middle schooler, you can commission a breakup letter. Your standard, run-of-the-mill, “it’s not you, it’s me” letter is $20 while a customized letter costs $30.
