Teen's April Fools' Day 'breakup' to boyfriend backfires
Hayleigh McBay thought it would be funny to send her boyfriend a phony break-up message on WhatsApp. She waited until a little after midnight to send the text, hoping it would be less obvious that it was an April Fool's Day prank.
The first message said, "I don't want to be with you anymore," which was followed by, "I'm not happy." His response was blunt and, to McBay, completely unexpected.
It simply read, "thank god you said it first." Her questioning replies to that made it very clear she didn't see that one coming at all.
The screenshot of their WhatsApp interaction quickly went viral and Hayleigh later used Twitter to confirm that her boyfriend was only returning the April Fool's prank with his response and that they are still a couple.
