In 1975 Neil Sedaka released the hit song “Breaking Up is Hard to Do.” Forty years later, an Australian company is out to prove Sedaka wrong.
Sorry It’s Over is out to help people break up with their girlfriends, boyfriends, wives, husbands or mistresses.
“It’s never easy to separate, so let us do your dirty work,” the company states. “Why bother telling your lover goodbye yourself? Who needs the grief and who has the time?”
The company was founded Kristy Mazins, a former nurse.
SIO promises to break up with a significant other in a variety of ways. They include text messages, email, handwritten letters or phone calls. The prices range anywhere from $5.50 to $13.50.
For $90, the person who is being broken up with can get a special "sympathy hamper" filled with, among other things, wine, chocolates and tissues. It will also include an affirmation quote to basically let them know, "It's not you, it's me."
For those who live in Australia, SIO offers a special service where they will arrange a personal meeting with person who is being dumped and “advise them of your decision” for $66.
