Sometimes, you just gotta stare the world in the eye and see who blinks first.

It will inevitably be you, of course, as the world does not in fact have eyelids, but still – you’ve made a statement holding out as long as you can.

When you do this, you send a message out into the universe, and that message is “I’m not messing around.”

A vibe definitely shared by the subjects of these tweets, I tell ya what.

13. WTF Peggy

Is this a part of your “brand” or are you really just super mean?

12. The comeback kid

The future is now, old man.

11. Relax

Dad I’m not sure you appreciate just how difficult it is to get a job right now.

10. The male species

He is chaos incarnate. He is the night.

9. I love New York

Hey! My dog is walkin’ here!

8. The walk out

Imagine changing your major because you needed your caffeine.

7. The planking challenge

Why is this happening. What started it. What do they hope to resolve. I have so many questions.

6. Just keep to yourself

You can’t possibly have the last name “Johnson” and imagine you’re not going to run into another.

5. The end is near

It ends when there’s no nose, all ring.

4. Legal threats

The audacity of a landlord trying to charge you AFTER you’ve left.
What are you gonna do? Kick me out?

3. The poem

This has the angriest of white boy energies about it.

2. Puppy love

You made the right choice.

1. When life gives you lemons

You exploit them for all they’ve got.

That last one is genius.

What’s the toughest thing you’ve done lately?
