Authors:
Unspirational

We've all drunk-texted an ex, but these painfully funny posts from the massively popular Instagram account 'Texts From Your Ex' take things to extremes as they plead, rant, insult, and just downright confuse their intended targets. From those with zero shame ("Let's take a bubble bath together?!"), to the chancers ("U wanna go to Mexico with me?" "No" "What about New Mexico?") and the deluded ("I'm moving to England and I'd like you to come with me"), and some of the best put downs you wished you'd thought of ("Not today, Satan"), you will simultaneously cringe and cry with laughter at these hilarious exchanges between exes.
