April Fool Gone Wrong: Woman Dumps Her Boyfriend for April Fools' Day Joke and He Says He Is Glad

Hayleigh Mcbay dumped her boyfriend for an April Fools' Day prank, and was probably expecting him to cry and beg for another chance, but him agree with her saying he is glad she said it first.

She messaged him on WhatsApp to announce that she did not want to be his girlfriend anymore, saying:

Hayleigh said: "I don't want to be with you anymore. I am not happy."

He agreed. He replied: "Thank God you said it first so I didn't have to."

Hayleigh seemed shocked by his response, but later found out that he hadn't meant it after all.

Maybe this will be a lesson to those who think it is funny to play with people's emotions on April Fools' Day.
