In a lot of ways, the internet has made the world a significantly smaller place.
There are the physical ways in which this is true. I can do a full-on video conference with someone an entire ocean away thanks to signals zipping through fiberoptic cables at literal light speed, for instance. But there are also psychological ways in which this is true.
Because when you scroll through the internet, looking at the casual thoughts of strangers, you quickly see how similar they are to your own – even the small stuff. Maybe especially the small stuff.
The stuff that’s just oddly beyond relatable. Like this.
15. Would you look at the time
No seriously, would you?
Does anyone else ever pull their phone out to check the time but then have to do it again cuz they forgot to actually look at the clock or am I just stupid

14. Shower power

13. Trust but verify
I don’t need everyone to trust them, I just need us all to finally learn how to USE THEM.
My trust issues so bad i don’t even trust these: pic.twitter.com/zshC7mA7yv

12. Click clack

11. Request processing
Gotta give that ol’ grey matter a moment to catch up.
Sometimes i say “huh?” then answer the question before the person even repeats themselves. Im not deaf, my brain just be laggin like a 2005 Dell desktop x

9. Three minutes in heaven
I try to do this but spend all that time worrying about how little time I have instead.
If I wake up at 8:27 and my alarm was set on 8:30 you can bet 100% imma close my eyes and go back to sleep for those 3 minutes

8. It’s a bop
“Then I saw her face / now I’mma beleaguered…”
When you Google the lyrics of a song and realise you've been singing nonsense for the past 6 months.
But then, your trash version is more lit than the original. pic.twitter.com/YCXeAmbv5O

7. The price you pay
And I’d have gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for that meddling me.
Have you ever been too nice and ended up in a situation that could’ve been avoided if only you had just been an asshole?

6. Hide it
As though your name isn’t on it.

5. Boxed in
Then it comes time to move and there’s not a single box in your entire house.
One thing no one ever talks about being an adult is how much time you debate yourself on keeping a cardboard box because it's, like, a really good box.

4. Brush it off
Yes and we all definitely go to the dentist regularly and never put it off…right?
Is it a universal thing to brush your teeth an hour before the dentist to try and hide the prior 6 months of neglect?

3. Good vibes only
You’d better be enjoying yourselves or I will turn this car around.

2. Realistic email
I was feeling slightly anxious at the time and decided to neglect all of reality as a result.
“Apologies for my delayed response. I thought about emailing you back every day for the past two weeks but I just didn’t.”

1. Highway hypnosis
When you’ve done something so much you don’t even need your brain.
