They say the pen is mightier than the sword, and if you’re ever received an apology text or letter from an ex who has wronged you, you know just how true that is.
Nick Lutz is a recently single 20-year old college student living in central Florida. Prior to his single status, Lutz had been dating a woman for eight months, but told the BBC that halfway into their relationship, he found out that she was using code names for men in her contact list. He eventually decided to end the relationship when he discovered that she had gone on a date to an amusement park, initially telling Nick she was going with a female friend.
Lutz’s ex did her best to win him back with a four-page apology letter, but according to the grade Lutz gave the paper, her best only warranted a ‘D-‘ letter grade.

The apology letter, which has now gone viral, was graded by Lutz and shared on his Twitter page. Noting that the letter was comprised of ‘useless fillers’ and spelling mistakes, Lutz questioned his ex’s arguments, saying that while she had a ‘strong hypothesis,’ she had no proof to back up her claims that she didn’t cheat on him. Lutz, who added a question mark to the line ‘I love you,’ did note that “Revision for half credit will be accepted.” That is some serious scholastic shade.
Many Twitter users have given their own grades to the letter, with a few people noting that missing apostrophes and poor grammar should have resulted in a failing grade.
While part of us wants to give her extra credit for taking the time to hand write the four-page letter, using Word and Spellcheck may have helped save the relationship.
Nick has admitted that he regrets sharing the letter on social media, which has now been viewed more than 100,000 times. Well, Nick, at least you didn’t fall asleep while reading it.
