It’s that time of year when kids are making their way back to school, and it’s a blessing and curse for most parents.
On one hand, they no longer have to keep them entertained every single day at home. But on the other hand, there’s stressful back-to-school shopping, getting them back into a routine, and preparing to help them with surprisingly challenging homework.
It helps to have a sense of humor about things, and thankfully these parents do — and they tweet about it.
You know how it is. There are times when you love being with your friends and going “out” and doing “things,” but most of the time you’re just praying that someone cancels whatever it is you were supposed to go out and do because, quite frankly, you would rather hang out by yourself on the couch with a pizza and Netflix marathon.
There’s nothing wrong with that. People can be so…peopley at times, and it seems like they’re everywhere.
So if you’re one of those souls that just kind of likes your space and time to stay your space and time, there’s a tweet for that.
The Innocence of Youth
Actually, I don’t hate to cancel.
I hate that you didn’t cancel first and now I have to think of an excuse.
We’ve all been there — stuck on hold and in the hell that is an automated phone menu just trying to reach a representative so we can complain about crappy service.
Londoners John Bull and his wife can relate. They were sick of the crappy service from their phone and Internet provider Virgin Media, and tried to cancel. They didn’t have a contract, so canceling shouldn’t have been too much of a problem, right?
As his four hours of live-tweeting will prove, breaking up is hard to do — at least with your service provider.
It starts out in the blissful honeymoon stage.
We’re still about a year away from the premier of the seventh season of Game of Thrones, but apparently Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on the HBO hit, has read the script for the upcoming season and decided to tweet out nothing but trolling teasers for us peons not in on the details.
First, she just let's us know that she's seen the scripts.
Once upon a time, a semi-innocent middle schooler thought he got his girlfriend pregnant through something akin to the immaculate conception, seeing as he had never kissed a girl before.
Now older and wiser, Kiren David shared the hilarious story on Twitter, and to say it had a few twists and turns would be understatement.
Warning: There’s a little bit of language, but we are talking about sex, so what did you expect?
First of all, we all sin.
Motherhood is no joke.
Not only are you in charge of keeping little humans safe and fed, but you’re also in charge of keeping little humans from jumping off furniture, redecorating the walls with markers, and bringing small woodland creatures into the house.
In order to survive it, you do need to have a good sense of humor. And these ladies here? They don’t mess around or sugarcoat things. They’re hilariously honest about being a mom, and thank goodness, they tweet it out.
Too Cool for School
Aren’t there any more after-school activities you’re interested in?
Any more clubs that you could join?
Imagine if you will, Donald Trump trying to describe a movie to you only as Donald Trump could do.
That’s exactly what Twitter did, and let’s just say it made a huge difference to the plot. HUGE.
