Text Message Cost Man $53,000

This is a perfect example of what NOT to say in a text message when you are breaking off an engagement. What an idiot.

Louis J. Billittier Jr. dumped his fiancee with a terse text message, breaking off their engagement. Apparently trying to calm down the situation, he then sent a fateful text: "Plus you get a $50,000 parting ring. Enough for a down payment on a house." Each of those 90 characters ended up having a price tag of roughly $600.
