Friends Don’t Let Friends….

  • Wear anything that makes their [arms/butt/legs/tummy/back] look fat.
  • Drunk dial exes.
  • Wallow in Ben & Jerry’s alone. They join!
  • Go too long without seeing each other. 
  • Pass up an amazing deal on a to-die-for outfit. 
  • Go to nerve-wracking doctor’s appointments alone.
  • Go home with a super creeper.
  • Have anything stuck in their teeth in public. Unless it’s really funny. (But never in a work environment, even if truly hilarious.)
  • Karaoke solo.
What’s on your list? Friends don’t let friends…

  1. This is hilarious! My favorite is karaoke solo….I don’t think I’ve been a very good friend lately ;(

    …talk bad about themselves. Whenever I used to say something negative about myself, my grandmother used to say, “Don’t talk about my friend that way!” I still use that line with my friends.

  3. Friends don’t let friends cry alone.

    Definitely the ” food in the teeth thing!” Yikes! I’m always checking people’s teeth and when my friend doesn’t mention mine, because they are nervous to say something, is the worst!

  5. Lets her friend make up excuses to stay in pajamas after 10 am. A good friend comes over and makes her get dressed so they can have lunch out, or go for coffee.

  6. Amen on the Just Say No to work environment teeth funk! I have so been there, with nary a BFF to bail me out…

  7. …feel bad for longer than 15 minutes! I love it when my friends and I try to comfort each other with a good joke. 🙂

    And your list makes me a neglectful friend. 😦 Time to grab my phone and dial them up!

  8. I love this story. It’s just the kind of thing I would do. Before I realized where I had misplaced the car, which is kind of hard to do, I would have called my husband and close friends and related the whole thing in high drama. Then I’d have to do the humiliating thing and take it all back.

  9. This is great! I have to admit, I’m guilty of the “Go too long without seeing each other.” It’s a little embarrassing…’ve inspired me to do better!

    Haha I remember one time I was at a bar with a group of people but only really knew two, me and one of the other girls were going to do karaoke, but when the song came up she was all upset about a boy who didn’t like her and the two friends were talking about how boo-friggen-hoo the stupid boy didn’t like her, and she didn’t want to do karaoke even though she promised, but then one of the friends-of-friends I’d just met was like “oh hey I’ll go up there with you.”

    I still keep those two friends around though, even though I have a lovely group of friends from school now. Those two friends have incredible social skills and I can learn so much. And they’re pleasant to hang around with usually.

    your blog is awesome and so totally relatable…both my BFFs recently moved to different cities and God, I miss ’em terribly! (I am on the verge of a divorce, so the timing cudn’t suck more :P)
    You’ve inspired me to go look for a new BFF myself! Thanx for writing 🙂
