SMS text messaging is useful for a lot of things: Sending notes to your friends when you’re in a meeting or some other place you can’t talk; letting people know where you are without interrupting whatever they’re doing; passing love notes; getting information from Google SMS or 4INFO. But there’s one thing you should never send via SMS: a Dear John letter.
Text messaging is way too impersonal (not to mention brief) to use it for breaking up with someone. Not that it stops some people from doing just that. In fact, it appears that Britney Spears just broke up with her husband (and father of her children) Kevin Federline via SMS. Now that’s cold.
This video catches the moment on film where KFed gets the bad news via SMS (it’s about 1:30 into the video).
