Amid their breakup, this woman's ex-boyfriend still made her usual morning coffee for her.

With her voice cracking, a TikToker named Annie (@anniepax) begins her video with "So..." before pausing abruptly and letting out a wavering breath.

After composing herself, she continues. "My boyfriend and I broke up two days ago. We live together still," she explains before adding sarcastically: "So fun."

"I'm moving out this weekend," she continues, "but one thing they don't tell you about is that you're still really nice to each other after a breakup."

She pans the camera around to show a cup of coffee sitting on the table before her.

"My boyfriend made me coffee this morning like he always does," she says. "And that f------ sucks. I really wish he didn't make me coffee anymore."

And that's it. The video ends. But this short clip certainly packed a punch ... even if many commenters decided to troll Annie for referring to her ex as her "boyfriend."

Because the internet is the internet, commenters decided to troll Annie for still referring to her ex as her "boyfriend."

Maybe humor is exactly what was needed in this situation, because many commenters decided to poke fun at Annie's wording in her video when she said her "boyfriend" made her coffee. Some decided to shoot their shot with her, too, knowing that she was now single.

"Your ex-boyfriend made you coffee," one person corrected.

"Your buddy made you coffee," another person pointed out.

"Your homie made you coffee," said another.

"Your roommate made you coffee," wrote yet another.

But many folks sympathized with Annie too.

"So sorry you're going through a breakup but also really glad he treats you with kindness," one person wrote. To this, Annie replied, "He really is the best."

"Makes it hurt worse when they're genuinely a good person," someone else commented, to which Annie replied, "For real."

One user said he went through something similar with his girlfriend earlier in the year. "Broke up in January. I slept on the couch and let her sleep on the bed. Until she found a place, we still watched our shows and ate together," the user wrote.
