Looks like Cupid didn’t visit this Esso garage in Manchester today as its digital display board was used by a girl called Laura to dump her unsuspecting boyfriend.

The mean-spirited lass paid for the board as its where her now ex-boyfriend gets his lunch. Displayed today at Laura’s request the ad was paid for in-full last week.

The message reads: “I’m leaving you for Gary. Your clothes are at your mum’s. I’ve changed the locks.”

“Sorry to do this on Valentine’s Day. Laura.”

The cold-hearted dumping is now doing the rounds on Facebook and Twitter.

The board in question usually advertises deals on chocolates and snacks for sale in the garage, but can be hired for a £100-a-month.
