What's the difference between breaking up and taking a break? One usually ends with you picking your shit up from the front yard after it's been tossed out, the other ends with one last nut and an amicable "I'll call you later, baby".

It's become the ultimate con for selfish people who just want to have their cake and eat it too. But it doesn't have to be that way.
