Breakups are rarely easy, even if you’re the one who has decided it’s time for things to end. It’s awkward, it’s emotional, and it can leave everyone at a bit of loose ends, don’t you think?

Apparently, some people also think breaking up involves stealing things. That’s never happened to me, personally, though one time I did gain a cat.

People are so weird, y’all. You have to just love it or let it drive you crazy.
