At the end of a bad relationship, it’s not uncommon to wish that you could erase your ex from your past — or at least from your memories (see: “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.”). Of course, since we don’t have fancy mindwiping technology, that’s not currently possible. But hey: we do have photo wiping technology — and apparently, there are some people out there using that technology to remove their exes from old photos.
While we’re sure that ritual offers some cathartic relief (something we definitely understand), we’re not totally sure how we feel about it. After all: for better or for worse, our exes are a part of our past — and a part of the process that has shaped who we are today. Isn’t removing them from our memories simply cheating ourselves of that valuable life lesson? Come on, people! (see: “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.”)
