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?
This note that arrived with an Etsy order is… the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me. WTF Peggy. pic.twitter.com/tiHmOQ1dq4

12. The comeback kid
The future is now, old man.
my daughter was wearing a flannel hoodie so I said “hey, the 90’s called” and she replied “yeah cause they couldn’t text” and godDAMMIT I’m getting really tired of my kids owning me

He is chaos incarnate. He is the night.

9. I love New York
Hey! My dog is walkin’ here!
Guy in the pickup honking, yelling at woman to move out of the street. She yells back "my dog is shitting, wait a minute!"

8. The walk out
Imagine changing your major because you needed your caffeine.
Yesterday a girl walked into class with an iced coffee and my prof told her she couldn’t have it so she just walked out and never came back and I can’t stop thinking about it

7. The planking challenge
Why is this happening. What started it. What do they hope to resolve. I have so many questions.
No need for an alarm clock at my Nanna’s house this morning when you have plank wars going off at 8am pic.twitter.com/rJH37JiKox

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

4. Legal threats
The audacity of a landlord trying to charge you AFTER you’ve left.
What are you gonna do? Kick me out?
My apartment really just tried to charge me $955 for moving out 20 minutes late.. I walked straight to their corporate office, and pulled the “my lawyer will be in touch with y’all soon card” and 3 minutes later the charge was dropped… I ain’t even got a lawyer ???

1. When life gives you lemons
You exploit them for all they’ve got.
My daughter made $110 on her lemonade stand today, in like an hour. Turned out people were handing her $5s and $10s and she was just assertively saying thank you for the tip, and not offering change.
