Woman Live-Tweets Couple's Awful #PlaneBreakup on Delayed Flight

Next to Thanksgiving dinner, a funeral, and the wedding altar, the absolute worst place to break up with someone has to be a crowded airplane -- especially one that's delayed on the tarmac. Still, that didn't stop a nameless dude from reverse-popping-the-question to his girlfriend while they sat together waiting for their plane to take off this past Sunday.

Fortunately for the rest of us, a woman named Kelly Keegs was there to live-tweet the ensuing fiasco in real time, and the resulting carnage will go down as one of history's all-time best breakups, second only to John and Lorena Bobbitt's hog-slicing farewell.

The debacle began when the dude lobbed his opening salvo, initiating the relationship-destruct sequence for all to see:


From there, Ms. Keegs began sharing the highlights of what's clearly a cheater's confession:


Things only got worse, as the relationship's reactor experienced core failure:


A brief calm ensued, still with the plane sitting on the tarmac:


Followed by, you guessed it, more dramz:


Then the mysterious side piece got a name:


Finally, when it seemed like all was lost, they both clipped the red wire and aborted the destruct sequence:

Moral of the story? If you see something awkward go down on your next flight, spring for the in-flight WiFi. It'll be worth the money.
