This Man’s Personal Ad In The Newspaper Is Heartbreaking… Until You Get To The End (Photo)
It is safe to say that the sun has set on the heyday of personal ads. In fact, most millennials tragically don’t read print news at all.
This clip is not only a relic, it is a comedic gem. A Reddit user posted this picture after stumbling on a surpassing ad in a newspaper his dad had squirreled away from 1973.
At first glance, the instinct is instant heartache. What could be worse than a pathetic, depressed appeal for reconciliation via the personal? I mean, that’s just sad.
Swerving in a surprising direction at the very end, this is a laugh-out-loud dig.
Whoever Sue is from 1973, I bet this stung to read in print. Digitalized, it is a massive blow.
Clever, Rick, I hope you eventually found the company you were looking for.
