We’ve all had that one embarrassing breakup story. The one that’s so cringe-worthy, so surreal, it would feel right at home in a Hollywood rom-com. The only thing that makes us feel better about these moments, is hearing other people’s equally mortifying stories. Thankfully, Jimmy Fallon asked people to share their own embarrassing breakup stories on Twitter.
It’s Hashtags time! Tweet out a funny or embarrassing way that you or a friend got dumped and tag it with #HowIGotDumped. Could be on the show!

My sister’s friend went to meet her boyfriend’s parents. She was embarrassed to ask for a bathroom so she asked for somewhere to wash her hands. After they sent her to the mud room, she climbed on the sink, peed, broke the sink off the wall and got a concussion #howigotdumped
