Now raise your other hand if in trying to raise that first hand you somehow hurt yourself, knocked something over, or set fire to your greater metropolitan area.
It’s ok. I understand. I’m a hot mess, too. Last week I severely injured myself while yawning in the morning. There’s not much that’ll push you harder to say “screw this I’m staying in bed” than that. But a lot of people on the internet are hot messes too, and they turn that hot mess into a hot take, and place that hot take on Twitter for all to enjoy.
Check out these ten tweets by and for people who are just like you, you beautiful disaster.
10. The customer is always wrong
Just because you don’t mean anything doesn’t mean you can’t wreck me.
There’s 7 million people in this world and you think I’m gonna let one customer with a bad attitude to ruin my day??? damn right I am I’ll probably even go cry in the freezer too

6. Dating in the modern day
Elizabethan courtship etiquette has nothing on the internet age.

4. The Devil’s in the details
My demons have resorted to cleaning up just so they have something to wreck.
demon: [looking around inside me] dude no offence but it’s like kind of a nightmare in here

3. Pain in hindsight
These are the scars that truly never disappear.
“Aaaaaaaah fuck” – me, aloud, every single day, like 12 times, recalling various small, irrelevant things I said or did many years ago that still embarrass me terribly
