Man Edits His Ex-Girlfriend's Apology Letter, Gives Her a "D"

It takes a big person to admit that they’ve made a mistake and apologize. Unfortunately, anyone who’s ever called me “big” is automatically, and permanently dead to me, and I still haven’t owned up to most of the shitty things that the toddler-version of me did in kindergarten; so this really isn’t my area of expertise. College student, Nick Lutz’s ex-girlfriend attempted to be better than I am at owning up to her mistakes… however, she won’t — or at least shouldn’t be writing anything longer than a text anytime soon.

The unnamed girlfriend sent Nick a long, handwritten note after what can be presumed as a messy breakup. Firstly, writing a note? While it may seem romantic, and The Notebook-ish to spill your guts through pen and paper; it’s much more effective to get wine drunk, send a fury of texts and then (literally) spill your guts. Secondly, if you’re ready to act poetic, profound and insightful; unless you have the IQ to match, consider enlisting the help of spell check. After the girlfriend sent Nick this unnecessarily long apology (she must have really f*cked up), he decided to take out his trusty red pen and edit it for her.

Honestly, you have to hand it to Nick for being mature — even after his relationship ended poorly, he was still willing to aid his ex in improving her grammar and literary capabilities. Well, either that, or he enjoyed the same intellectual high he got from correcting her as I do when I continue a conversation with a dud at the bar only so that I can sneakily point out his poor grammar.

His criticism began as constructive; for example, correcting her cringe-y misspelling of “loose” instead of “lose,” but slowly deteriorated to personal insults (who can blame him?) In one line, she wrote “I just hope to God you have thought about me,” to which he responded “I do not.”

After Nick tweeted out the photos of his hilarious edits, the internet rallied around it. Boyfriends everywhere started to strategize a plan on how to avoid not only their sappy girlfriends, but how to prevent anyone from seeing their handwriting that hasn’t evolved since middle school, by correcting any handwritten notes, instead of responding; while girlfriends were busy pulling out their grammar books — ready to produce a flawless breakup/ apology letter if ever necessary. Others were simply willing to put their undergraduate degree in English to good use, and used the social media platform to point out the grammatical errors that Nick missed with his first edit.

Just like any responsible teacher, Nick finished his edits by providing his ex’s essay (I mean apology) with a final grade… a 61%, otherwise known as a D- (something tells me this is the last “D” she’ll be receiving from him). He even provided her with some feedback, so that the next time she has to apologize to a boyfriend, she’ll be more prepared:

“Long intro, short conclusion, short hypothesis but nothing to back it up. Details are important. If you want to be believed, back it up with proof. “You claim that cheating never occurred but place blame on yourself — then what for? Need to stop contradicting your own story and pick a side. While this gesture is appreciated I would prefer details over statements. Revision for half credit will be accepted.”
