Here Are Some Of The Most Annoying Things Your Friends Can Do While Getting Ready To Go Out

The SRSLY girls have released another video mockumenting the lifestyles of young women in urban settings, but unlike their delightfully accurate take on street style blogs, this one details some sort of seventh circle of female friendship hell.

In it, the two ladies – Alexandra Fiber and Danielle Gibson — are getting ready to go out. But instead of just getting dressed and going, they whine at each other, act like children, and re-enact cheeseball rom-coms. I die a little with each passing moment. Watch it, and then let’s discuss:

First of all, I guess my question to you is, do any of you really behave like this? You know, like 15-year-old schoolgirls high on the sugar from Easter candy? Because I hope not.

Second of all, let’s break down everything in this video that would have made me go to this party by myself about ten seconds after putting my make-up on.

1. I hate picking out clothes with other people. Why do you need someone to tell you what to wear out of your own closet? Are you questioning the formality of the bar gathering you’re going to? Also, unless you honestly have no opinion of your own, you will inevitably get to the point where your friend insists that you “look sooooo good!!!!” in something that makes you feel like a walrus/torso-less/Stevie Nicks, and then you hit that awkward moment where you have to either disregard their opinion, or feel like a beached sea creature and a pushover all night.

2. Does anyone really, seriously, honestly strut down their hallway like they’re in a fashion show while hanging out with their friends? If you have, you’ve watched too many 80s movies. Stop it right now.

    hah no to the awkwardly strutting around in outfits for each other, great as it would be to pretend that i am Carrie Bradshaw and I’m moving from my super nice apartment to an even nicer one with my fiance and have to, for some reason, decide which of my super crazy 80s clothes get to come. since that is not my life, it turns more into us picking clothes prior to such event, and putting on makeup and said clothes together, and occasionally acting like the people in this video. still fun, nothing to be ashamed of, even if i am getting too old for it!

      It’s true, Trisha, I am so very angry about all of this, and I am also a lady.

      Shine on, you lady, you.

    I’m 21 and this is pretty close to how me and my best friend behave before going out. We have fun deciding what to wear, Facebook stalking our mutual friends, and being all around ridiculous. It is just the way some women choose to prepare for a fun night out and while we have never sang into hairbrushes or jumped on the bed, I can’t say that we never will. Getting ready to go out can be just as much fun as actually being out. :D

    I’m 22, and this is dead on accurate for me. Although normally we dance on the furniture instead of jumping on it.
