1. Organising things. (My friend would say organising “gathos“)
Organising things on any group chat is like taking a pit of fire ants and letting them crawl into your eye sockets. You’re left there, after a failed attempt to organise a beach trip, with a massive headache and the question of why you even bothered in the first place. Please, if someone out there has unlocked and explored the secrets of getting things done in the group chat, help us all.
2. Getting spammed while you can’t check your messages.
I have been spammed countless times. You just get back from a trip to the cinemas and ahh, yes, seventy-thousand nose emojis have invaded your screen and broken your phone. Or maybe there’s a very delightful conversation about how a particular anime character is better than the other (sorry guys, you know who you are). Or memes have made themselves at home on your messages (can’t say I’d care too much about this one).
3. Debating whether Gryffindor or Slytherin is the best Hogwarts House.
I’m a Slytherin and real proud of it, and I have a lot of friends that are the same. But then the Gryffindor House members come and tell us that their house is better than ours. Excuse me? Hell no.
“Gryffindor is the best because Harry, Hermione and Ron are in it.”
“Oh, but Slytherin had Merlin himself as a member.”
“Gryffindor always wins the house cup though.”
“Yes, but Slytherin is clearly the best because it has the coolest dorms, they’re under the water!”
The gates of hell have opened.
4. That one person that always reads the messages, but never replies.
The dark horse, venturing into the mysterious chambers of the group chat. The brave knight left speechless by the things they see in the land of the unknown. Seen, but never heard. A master of silence.
5. When someone sends something, and no one replies back because it makes no sense.
“wat de helda a sho”
Well, this is where I silently leave the group chat and pretend I never saw the message. You don’t know what the heck they’re talking about; your friends don’t know what the heck they’re talking about, well damn, the person who sent it probably doesn’t even know what the heck they’re talking about.
I’m off to put my group chat on mute, have a super amazing day guys!
