So, umm ... this isn't working.   (©skedonk)

(Newser) – There are few things more awkward than having the "It's not you, it's me" conversation. For those too nervous, chicken, or lazy to break up with their partner themselves, there's iDUMP4U, a website that does the dirty work for you—for a mere $10. For said fee, the man behind the site, Bradley Laborman, will make the breakup call ... and record it, should you want to post it on YouTube, reports Time.

He'll even handle messier cases: Pay him $25 and he'll call it quits on your engagement; $50 will get the wheels turning on your divorce. Though he started it as a joke in September 2009, he's logged 200 breakups to date. And the holidays are his busy time: "Last year I had a lot of Turkey Dumps," he says. "I also had people who didn't want to buy a Christmas present [for their partner]. This time of year is the busiest." (Read more breakup stories.)
