Breakups are hard, but one French man took it very personally when he sent over 20,000 texts and phone calls to his ex-girlfriend after she left him.

Apparently he had renovated their apartment for free but she never thanked him, prompting the titanic number of texts and calls.

The man, who suffers from occasional depression, is now serving a 4-month prison sentence and was fined almost $1,300.

Sorry dude, it’s over.

  1. Cops nab Chinese robber who allegedly pretended to be Superman

After a 10-year-old girl caught a Chinese man trespassing, he tried to convince her he was Superman by stripping down to his underpants and jumping out the window.

Suqian, China resident Tang Lei was arrested for burglary when he was rushed to the hospital after landing on a nearby roof. Lei was drunk at the time.

Lei faces up to seven years in prison if convicted. Comic book fans would probably demand a longer sentence for sullying the beloved Man of Steel’s legacy.
