Best answer to a Dear John letter

marine reading Dear John letter from ex-girlfriend

A Marine stationed overseas recently received a “Dear John” letter from his girlfriend back home. It read as follows:

Dear Ricky,

I can no longer continue our relationship.

The distance between us is just too great.

I must admit that I have cheated on you twice, since you’ve been gone, and it’s not fair to either of us.

I’m sorry.

Please return the picture of me that I sent to you.



The Marine, with hurt feelings from this “Dear John” letter, asked all his fellow Marines for any pictures they could spare of their girlfriends, sisters, ex-girlfriends, aunts, cousins etc.

In addition to his picture of Susie, Ricky included all the other pictures of the pretty women he collected from his friends.

There were 59 photos in the envelope in response to the “Dear John” letter, along with his note:

Dear Susie,

I’m so sorry, but I can’t quite remember who you are.

Please take your picture from the pile, and send the rest back to me.

Take Care,
