“I still love you, but more like a friend at this point,” isn’t something you would normally write to a gym, but hey, 2018, kids.
According to HuffPost, Reddit user Robert Scucci, who might be better known to the masses as “Mastrrbasser,” recently posted the letter he was forced to send to Planet Fitness in order to officially cancel his membership.
Scucci recently moved from Milford, Connecticut to Nashville, Tennessee, and he tried to cancel his Planet Fitness membership over the phone. The powers that be told him he couldn’t do it over the phone, so he had to either show up to his Connecticut gym in person or send a letter via “certified mail.”
Since Tennessee to Connecticut is quite the hike, Scucci decided to not only send a letter but also have a little fun with it, and we’re all winners today because of it.
“Planet Fitness wouldn’t let me cancel over the phone,” Scucci said. “I figured I’d have fun with it because you can either get really mad at something like this or just waste somebody’s time by sending them something official that they then have to take seriously.”
So that’s exactly what Scucci did. He had some “fun” with it by writing a hysterical “break up letter” to Planet Fitness, complete with the whole “it’s not you, it’s me” and “I still think fondly of you” routines.
Who knows? Maybe Scucci can make some cash on the side by writing break up letters for other people looking to move on to better things. I mean, that was nothing short of genius.
