A very specific age that comes with a higher level of sass, more intriguing questions, and overall, just a bunch of madness.
Luckily for us, parents document these precious moments and share them with the world via Twitter.
Kids are the ultimate savage roasters because they're honest and don't hold back. At all.
But it does make for some funny and interesting stories! And for that, we are grateful.
If you're in the mood for more everyday kid shenanigans that parents have to deal with, check out these tweets from this week!
Unfortunately, bullies and high school come hand in hand. Kids can be mean, but as we all know, those who bully others are only hiding their own pain inside. Although that doesn't make it easier at the time, what might help, years later, is knowing that your bully got some comeuppance in adulthood. For those who were lucky enough to sail through high school without being picked on, good for you! But for those of you who did get bullied, it might be worth finding out what adulthood has in store for them. Because these people are Tweeting what their bullies do now, and by the sound of things, karma has a way of making everything turn out just the way it should.
Men and women both put up with a lot of sh*t from each other. Each one thinks the other is more annoying, but come on, let's be honest... men are a LITTLE bit more annoying than women. Ok fine, a lot more annoying. There, I said it. And so did these women. They just put it more succinctly in a tweet. Scroll through this week's best 'women roasting men' Tweets and see how many of these you find relatable. It can't just be me...
Masturbation - it's awkward to talk about, but it's something we all do, so I say let's normalize it! Why is it that society accepts talk about men pleasuring themselves, but not women? Well, these women are changing that narrative, and are tweeting about what gets them going, what turns them off and everything in between. Enjoy!
Wedding dramas are some of the best kinds of dramas. We know, we know, we shouldn't take pleasure from something ruining the happiest day of the happy couple's lives, but some things are too good not to share. Writer Elan Gale asked his followers on Twitter for real stories of people who witnessed objections made during wedding ceremonies and the replies were truly comical. Check them out and cringe!
Vegemite, the Australian version of Marmite, is an acquired taste, which not everyone has. Australians are very protective of their precious spread and take offense at the way Americans eat it, as they make pretty clear in these tweets. If there's one thing Aussies are passionate about, it's clearly Vegemite. We don't know why, because it's gross...
2020 has been quite a year, to say the least, and everyone has had to adjust to new realities. One thing that is for sure, is that we're saying things now that would have made no sense if we'd have said them in 2019, which goes to show how much things can change in six months. Check out these tweets about things we might have said in the past six months, that had we said them back in 2019 (which seems so long ago), people would have looked at us like we were crazy.
There are some things that seem to be a right of passage once you reach a certain age. Whether it's texting with your index finger only, eating certain foods, or using specific phrases, the younger generation will always have something to mock their elders about. These hilarious tweets about the things people do once they reach the age of 40 prove that we're all the same and that some things in life just can't be avoided!
As we know all too well, the world can be a dangerous place, particularly for a woman walking alone at night in metropolitan areas. Although staying vigilant is key in trying to avoid getting into dangerous situations, sometimes you may need to depend on the help of a kind stranger to keep you safe in certain circumstances. This is exactly the position one woman in NYC found herself in February, who when walking home alone, realized she was being followed by three men. Understanding the potential danger she was in, she approached a stranger and asked him to pretend he knew her, and accompany her home The stranger tweeted the whole encounter (below) which went viral and inspired many people to thank him, on behalf of women everywhere for helping this woman while she was in a vulnerable state. It doesn't take a lot to show some kindness and help someone in need, like this compassionate stranger shows.
High school is all fun and games until a scandal tears the place apart. And let's be honest, what is like without a bit of drama? It keeps things interesting and makes for great stories! TV writer and producer Alison Bennet asked people for the biggest scandals that took place in their high school, and the answers are totally, hilariously brilliant. Scroll through for some of the best!
Genetics is a weird thing and can go one of two ways. Sometimes, people look nothing like their parents and can even question whether they are genuinely related to them. But other times, family genes are so strong that looking at a picture of your parents or grandparents at the same age as you can feel like you're looking in the mirror. A Twitter user felt precisely this when she compared a picture of herself and her grandma, remarking that "Grandma's genes really hit copy n paste huh," which inspired others to show how much they look like their own family parents, grandparents and children. Here are some of the most uncanny resemblances that were submitted.
It might be hard to remember what going to school is even like given the current situation, but cast your minds back if you can. High school and college may both be educational institutions, but in reality they couldn't be more different. Whether it's the way you communicate with your teachers, or the attitude students have in class, these hilarious tweets demonstrate the stark difference between high school and college and how the former can never prepare you for the latter.
When it comes to picking a partner, we all have certain requirements or types. Whether it's hair color, skin tone, or physique, everyone has their thing. But one thing that most women in the western heterosexual dating world have in common is their desire for a man who is taller than them. Without going into the evolutionary reasons for this, this is often a deal-breaker for women, who have started writing this stipulation on their dating profiles. Men aren't happy about it for the most part (especially those who aren't 6 feet tall) and have begrudgingly started putting their height on the apps with the statement "because apparently that matters". While it's obvious that height isn't everything, one woman endorsed this in a tweet about her husband who is shorter than her, expressing how happy she is with her "5"5 king". Women felt inspired to post pictures of their shorter significant others saying how happy they are. Of course, there were the haters, but Lizz had great comebacks for them all. Check out the thread below.
It's been nearly two months since gyms closed to the public and we were forced to exercise at home (or just continue not exercising as is the case for some). But whether you're a workout junkie, or someone who enjoys the occasional workout, or even just a couch potato, quarantine is proving a little too much for everyone when it comes to working out. Here are some tweets that pretty much sum up how we're all feeling.
