Cosmopolitan (India) - - YOU, YOU, YOU - By Jes­sica Knoll

Prob­lem

It’s rain­ing just as you’re about to leave work, and you’re wear­ing your favourite, brand-new shoes. No um­brella.

FIX

Grab a plas­tic bag, cut it into two pieces, and wrap them around your shoes, tuck­ing in the plas­tic. Tear a hole for each heel for trac­tion, and walk care­fully!!!

Prob­lem

The zip­per to your favourite leather mini is jammed.

FIX

Rub a bar of soap or drip can­dle wax along the zip­per’s teeth. The lu­bri­ca­tion will help loosen it.

Prob­lem

A fam­ily friend with ques­tion­able taste keeps try­ing to set you up with a ‘real looker.’ You’ve seen his pic­ture... and looker yeah, right!

FIX

Tell her, “You’re so sweet, but I have such quirky re­quire­ments when it comes to boyfriends, I need to find my own.”

Prob­lem

You show up at a party in a fancy dress, and ev­ery­one else is in jeans.

FIX

Lie! “Oh, this? Thanks! I ac­tu­ally just came from a stuffy cock­tail party, which is why I’m so over­dressed.”

Prob­lem

You sit down next to a VIP at an event and re­alise you know zero about what she does.

FIX

Ev­ery­one bores VIPs with biz talk, so en­gage her by ask­ing her opin­ion on juicier topics, like whether she’d rather at­tend Jen or An­gelina’s wed­ding.

Prob­lem

You have a birth­day party to go to now! All the stores are closed, and you need a gift, stat.

FIX

Run to the near­est con­ve­nience store, and cre­ate a birth­day SOS kit. In­clude painkillers, con­doms, and blot­ters.

Prob­lem

You sent a text that said “Think­ing of you naked” to an ac­quain­tance, not your BF.

FIX

Fol­low it up with “So glad that I ac­ci­den­tally sent that text to you and not some­one who would judge me!”

Prob­lem

You didn’t wash your face, and now your make-up is all over his white cot­ton pil­low­case.

FIX

Press a tis­sue into the spot, then pat the stain with a dab of wa­tered-down sham­poo. It won’t re­move the stain com­pletely, but will make it less in-your-face ob­vi­ous..

Prob­lem

The one day you don’t work out in those span­dex yoga pants that help your ass defy the laws of grav­ity, you run into your ex and his cute, new, not-sweaty girl­friend on your way home.

FIX

“I would shake your hand, but I just ran four miles and I’m a mess.” #Hum­ble­Brag, what?

She couldn’t quite be­lieve they’d run out of chicken wings

Life was tough when you had dots all over your face
