These Broke College Girls Came Up with a Genius Way to Get Exactly What They Wanted

Share on Facebook

College kids are a) often broke and b) sitting around with a LOT of time on their hands. So it shouldn’t be too big of a surprise when students think up some very clever stunts to get what they want.

When these two girls found themselves hungry and strapped for cash, they did what any good college kid would do.

This is Emma, a college student from Texas.

(Not to mention their ukuleles, Lola and Lucy.)

But these girls came up with a creative solution to their “problem”. They had the genius idea to put up a sign in their window requesting someone bring food to their dorm room.

A group of guys in the dorm across the way put up their own sign asking the girls what kind of food they would like.

A couple of girls after our own hearts, right there. Any food, all the food. But the girl’s response prompted a hilarious response from the boys.

Only jokingly, of course. It could’ve ended there, but the girls came up with an even better reply.

And is that an emoji on the bottom there? Those boys better bring some lobster and some foie gras or something for that Grade-A clap back!


But Emma’s original tweet is currently sitting at well over 100,000 retweets. Which is a lot of freakin’ retweets (R.I.P. Emma’s phone).

But to be honest, Madelynn is probably glad her Twitter notifications haven’t been totally destroyed like Emma’s. I know you’re probably wondering if the clever girls ever got their food. Well, the boys had one last response.

But the boys demanded a million RTs before they would go out to dinner, which raised more than a couple of eyebrows.

And some questioned the legitimacy of the whole thing. But we want to believe!

Which is a valid question.

I guess chivalry really is dead.

Unless they have food, of course.
