29 Hilarious Fails That Prove You Should Never Text Your Ex
Here’s a simple flowchart for whether to text your ex or not:
Should I text my ex? ———-> No
OK, in fairness, it’s not always that simple. Maybe your ex still has your best sweater. Maybe your ex kindly volunteered to help you move and you need to coordinate when she’s showing up at your place. Maybe your ex’s phone is the detonator to a bomb placed underneath a car carrying Hitler in 1933 and a simple “You up?” will prevent WWII and the Holocaust.
But, failing that, messaging your ex seriously violates texting rules. You two are exes for a reason, and often, trying to persuade your ex to take you back can only stir up trouble. The responsible, mature, adult thing to do is let the past be the past and try to remain positive after your breakup.

The Instagram account, which posts devastating screenshots submitted by followers, is practically an instruction manual for how not to behave. It’s also kind of tragic – but mostly hilarious. Take a look.
