25 Things You GChat To Your Work BFF

Shout out to work BFFs, the most underrated part of the Friend Family Tree. They shoulder a great burden, and share with us the most significant portion of our waking lives. They arguably know more about us than many of our “personal” relationships, and, more importantly, cover for us when we are hungover. The office wouldn’t be the same without them, and GChat is the glue that holds these precious relationships together.

13. “[Says something so hilarious that both of you simultaneously burst into laughter at opposite ends of the office, and everyone stares at you.]”

14. “How is it only 2:30??? Kill meeee.”

15. “Why is it so hot in here? It’s like a fucking terrarium. I’m about to strip down to a tank top and sweat on everyone.”

16. “Oh, great, [coworker who always orders fish for lunch] got fish. Looking forward to smelling like a sock all afternoon.”

24. “Throw me your chapstick.”

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
