From Federal News Radio:

During World War II, lots of GIs got “Dear John Letters” from their back home sweethearts. At least in the movies. Later, when dumped by a boyfriend, women were urged to see the 2009 masterpiece “He’s Just Not That Into You”. Jerry Seinfeld ended relationships using the “It’s not you, its me” line. Whatever works. For 2015 current, retired and former federal workers, the bad news comes in another form. By email or snail mail. Either way, it frightens and hurts. It is very long message from the Office of Personnel Management.
