The 10 commandments of the group chat
Your squad convo is the perfect combo of savage and supportive. But do you know all the rules?
When your friend is waiting for a text back from a guy, only hit up the group chat if it’s something urgent, cause she’ll think it’s him every time it beeps or vibrates. And we’ve all lived that hell.
When someone makes a spelling or grammatical error, the rest of the squad is obliged to serve up their strongest tea and roast them savagely.
If you can’t understand what each and every squad member is saying with a whole sentence of emojis, are you even a squad?
Don’t be that person who reads everything but never says anything. It’s weird.
CAPS LOCK IS FOR SERIOUS STUFF ONLY. Like when Harry drops his solo album, or your crush slides into your DMs. It’s good for getting everyone’s attention, but you can’t overdo it or you’ll be the girl who cried caps lock.
If someone drops a fire GIF, you must send praise hands or applause hands and bow to their GIF game superiority.
There’s always a friend who falls asleep and wakes up to 144 messages. Don’t go easy on them and tone down the messaging just cause you know they’re asleep. It’s called the ‘you snooze, you lose’ principle. They’ll catch up in the morning anyway.
When someone is totally lost, be a pal and give them a quick summary so they can catch up. When the group chat is lit, no one wants to be left behind.
Don’t be that friend who ignores a personal message but replies in the group chat. It’s shady AF.
Do you even know what texting is? Don’t message the group about something that doesn’t involve everyone. Side convo that stuff.
