Train commuter notices savage message written on passenger's hand

Train commuter notices savage message written on passenger's hand

A Sydney man has been roasted on social media for having a brutal reminder to send a 'break up email'.

An Aussie man has unwittingly caused quite a stir on social media after he was spotted riding a Sydney train with 'send breakup email' written on his hand.

The anonymous man was spotted on the train by radio host Emma Chow, who shared it on TikTok, along with the caption 'don’t forget to break up with her'.

The video also asked the question: "Is this the most gutless way to break up with someone?"

The Sydney media personality discussed the 'gutless' act live on the air with her co-host Mike E on their show, RnB Fridays, on The Edge 96 radio station.

"I had to take a video of this because I couldn't quite believe this guy had written this note on his hand," Emma told her co-host.

"Firstly, how embarrassing. Secondly unbeknownst to her, this poor girl is going to get broken up with and it's just going to land in her Gmail and be like 'I don't want to be together anymore'."

Her co-host Mike leapt to the man's defence to point out that an email is longer than a text.

The host said that an email meant that the man would have more space to list his reasons for ending his relationship with the mystery, soon-to-be-dumped person.

Emma, however, was having precisely zero of what her co-host was putting down.

"Say it to her face or say it on the phone at the very least," she said.

She added: "That is gutless, you cannot send an email to someone to break up with them."

The video, which has now been viewed over 1.1 million times, received a mixed response from the radio show's TikTok followers.

One user said: "Maybe there’s a reason he’s got to do it over email rather than in person."

A second added: "This is the most heartless way to break up with someone."

A third chipped in with: "You can’t judge him if you don’t know him."

"To whom it may concern, you are dumped."

Some comments pointed out that the 'break up email' reminder doesn't actually say 'her' or 'him', and therefore may be a different type of reminder entirely.

One user said: "It’s a sales term. You send a breakup email to a potential customer that's not returning a call or email."

A second added: "Could be organising a work break up."

A third pointed out: "Don’t run to assume. This could be a termination of a business agreement: contract break, etc."

We'll just hope for anyone involved with this man that it was a work-themed reminder and not actually a brutal, relationship ending prompt.
