Did Google Street View Catch A Break Up Scene?By: Chris Richardson - May 30, 2013
Ever since Google has introduced the “Street View” function to its Maps service, there have been all kinds of discoveries and finds by users all over the globe. So much so, in fact, a multitude of publications–this one included–have leveraged these finds for content. A great example of this is the StreetViewFun blog, which, as the name implies, catalogs some of these moments.
Well, if the Reddit thread where the following image comes from is accurate, we may have another find for the Street View Hall of Fame; or, it just may be a young lady cleaning out her car. Observe:

What say you? Is that the scene from a dramatic, “get your shit and get out” breakup, or is she just cleaning up? As you can imagine, the Reddit comments had a field day with this, and the most upvoted comment gets straight to the point:
With her floormats on the street I’m going to go ahead and say this is just a girl cleaning out her car and OP is a filthy liar.
It should be noted the user who submitted it used the following title: “Google Streetview captures the glorious moment when my buddy kicks his now ex-gf out of his house.” Now, there’s really no way to be sure what is going on unless the person in the image steps up and clears the air. That being said, the user who submitted the image in question did post the following response:
A little backstory: this picture was taken a couple years ago since they have been broken up for a while now. My buddy no longer lives in the same town as me but I became aware of this recently by his brother who is currently my coworker…
So, did the Reddit user who netted this high karma submission submit a random find under the guise of his buddy getting dumped or is it the real deal? Let us know what you think.
