Growing up, I didn’t have a best friend. It wasn’t until my 30s that I can safely say I obtained a true best friend. A best friend is someone you can always count on, through thick and thin. Your best friend is required to cover your ass, hold back your hair, lend you a helping hand, and slap a bitch when necessary. The “BFF” code has been around for centuries, much like the “Bro” code only more intelligent and catty.
I myself am a bit of a flawed friend. I find myself doing and saying things I probably shouldn’t. The BFF code has covered my ass countless times. Check out the list below to see if you, or your best friend is a hot mess, who chronically tests the durability of the code.
Here are 10 friend faux pas that are covered by the “code.”
1. Was I Late?
Maybe I was late, or maybe you told me the wrong time. Who am I kidding? Of course I was late. I have never been on time in my life. You know I am always late, so you must accept it and move forward. Why are you pissed?
2. Did I Borrow That?
I may have borrowed it or stole it. Does it really matter? If you love me as much as you say you do, you’ll let it slide. I can’t promise I will give it back, but it looks better on me anyway. Right?
3. I Forgot My Purse
Can you pay for coffee today? You know I will get you back. If not next time, the time after that, or maybe the time after that. You know I’m good for it.
4. Can I ask you for a favor?
Not a big favor, just a small favor. Can my family of five stay with you for like 20 days while we renovate our house? I promise, we won’t get in the way. Oh yeah, and my dog too?
5. Can I pick the movie?
I want to see Sharknado 3. It will be epic, I promise. I know you hated the last two, but this one is sure to be a crowd pleaser. It rains sharks, you know that, right?
6. I don’t remember that. Are you sure you told me?
I mean, you forget a lot of stuff, oh wait…I forget a lot of stuff. What were we talking about? You wanna grab a drink?
7. I may have broken this
But, maybe someone else broke it. I don’t think I broke it, but I did make coffee last, and now the grinder is broken. I’ll buy you a new one the next time I go shopping. I promise. Hey, you wanna go shopping?
8. Are you going to finish that?
You don’t really need another donut. Have you seen your ass in those jeans? Put that down and back away from the plate.
9. Do you really need a hug?
I mean, I will hug you if you want me to, but you know I only hug on birthdays and holidays. This doesn’t really fall into that category, but I will make an exception if you fill out the proper paperwork.
10. We’re good right?
I know we had that fight, but I’m sorry if you’re sorry. Are you sorry? I mean you were really mean. Oh, I was mean too?
So if you have a best friend and they do any of the things on this list, forgive them, they know not what they do. Having a best friend is another type of marriage. We often under appreciate the ones we love the most. I would lay my life down for my best friend, that is, if I can manage to be on time to help them out.
