"Cancel my subscription—I don’t need your issues” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as T-shirts, posters and bumper stickers. The saying takes a magazine subscription response and makes it into a relationship one-liner.
“CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION - I DON’T NEED YOUR ISSUES” was cited in August 2002, when the saying was observed on a T-shirt.

I recently saw two t-shirts that I loved as well. Unfortunately, they were on someone else’s body at the time:
“Cancel my subscription. I don’t need your issues.”
“Stupidity takes its toll. Please use exact change.”

I really care about my ex “boyfriend,” since I secretly think that’s what he really was, but I’ve lost interest in him, romantically. What should I say to him?
“Cancel my subscription, I don’t need your issues.”
