Best of all, Smashing Katie’s Breakup Stories is launched by Schmidt’s own breakup story that happened Thanksgiving 2008. Entitled, Getting Dumped on Thanksgiving Causes Tourette’s Syndrome, Schmidt published her own tale of getting a phone call from her guy at 8am, waking her up, on Thanksgiving morning only to have him breakup with her.

Realizing there have to be others like her, Schmidt states, “I figure relationships will just work themselves out, yet I proceed blindfolded whilst running face-first into walls. As a fine way to kick off the 2008 holiday season, this particular Thanksgiving breakup was too surreal and comical to keep to myself. And whammo, Smashing Katie Breakup Stories was born Thanksgiving 2008!”
