Gawker recently posted a clip that posited—and proved—that Everyone At Downton Abbey Receives Shocking News in Letters.
And now, one report finds, ten percent of people have been dumped via text. While many would decry text-dumping as lazy and cowardly, perhaps it’s just the next logical step from a letter. One of the report’s experts says:
“It is easier to write a few words and then send it through a text and avoid confrontation ... Texting is such a part of how we communicate as a whole now that it is natural that this will be used for something [relationship related].”
And how is that different from letters? Aside from the whole pen to paper, spelling words properly, and no stamp thing. Just imagine if Lady Edith had been able to text the Turkish Embassy:
“FYI, IDK if U know Kemal dead bcuz of 6Y times w/Lady Mary.”
What’s the worst way you were ever dumped?
