DENVER – Getting dumped by your boyfriend a week before the big dance isn’t nice, but a Littleton teen found a way to literally pay back the insult.

Maria said her boyfriend, whom she had only been with for 11 months, dumped her a week before their high school prom. As if that wasn’t enough, the guy then asked her to pay him back the money he gave her for a party bus so he could take another girl to another prom.

“I can pick it up, or you can drop it off whichever is convenient for you. I need it today or tomorrow,” reads a text sent from her ex.

But instead of letting this romantic misfortune bring her down, Maria decided to pay him back – with four jars full of pennies and one last note.

“Here’s every cent of your $95. Have fun at prom :).”

Savage move.

And like all teenage love stories, this one also ends in a positive way: Maria is going to the prom with one of her friends. 

Update: Maria told Denver7 she has no hard feelings against her ex-boyfriend and wishes him no harm or harassment.
