“Shit Girls Say”

This video has been making the rounds, and it’s easy to understand why. The only thing glaringly missing is: “Is mercury in retrograde? It seems like mercury’s in retrograde.”

    Haha – I saw this yesterday and *almost* sent it to you! For the record, I never say “twinsies!”

        It doesn’t count if I call it “twinkies,” right? Right???

        Of course, the short version of that – twinks – has been sort of re-appropriated in recent years, so maybe all of this is coming together to tell me that it’s time to stop.

    Like, I’m not even joking right now, I think I’ve literally (oooh, they forgot one) done all of these in the last month.

      LITERALLY! Good one. Yes, they forgot that one. They also forgot ANYWAY…

      My favorite part was: “listen, listen, listen. listen to this email!” hahaha.

    I watched this literally 2 minutes after calling my brother saying, “can you do me a favour?”

      I think I text my boyfriend that like 5 times a day. And half of them “can you do me a huge favor? If you’re near a computer can you look up…”

        haha, yes ‘huge’ is often included in my requests too

    • Wendy December 14, 2011, 4:25 pm

      I say this to Drew about 10 times a day. It used to just be two or three times a day, but now when Jackson, it seems I need more favors than before.

    Oh, the “Are you near your computer?” one is so damn accurate. Two of my best girl friends do this to me all the fucking time and they are usually calling me ON THEIR IPHONES!!!!

    Hahaha…I saw this yesterday and can’t get enough of it. I second you guys that he forgot “LITERALLY” and “ANYWAY” but I guess those will come in episode 2. Some others might be “Seriously?” or “just 5 minutes!” “can you hold on just one second?” “that is just ridiculous!” “why would you even ask me that?” “where is my phone? can you call it?” …it would also be funny if he made fun of the daily birth control cell phone alarm

    Oh wish I had watched this at work earlier. I needed to laugh! I do the “LISTEN LISTEN LISTEN” one all the time. And this one I do EVERY DAY:
    “Did I lock the door?” ……. “Yes.”

    I don’t do any of this ๐Ÿ˜€

    My bf asks me quite a lot: does this sentence make sense? , can you do me a favor? can you search something for me?

    Aaah….Mercury HAS been retrograde, since Nov 24th, and depending on where you live, went direct Tuesday late (12-13) or yesterday (12-14). It really can impact your life—I’ve asked people in industries which might be influenced by a Mercury retro over a period of years how things have been (without mentioning anything about Mercury) and the ‘crazy’ periods’ are those with Mercury retro.

      nope, I’m with you. Not quite sure its picking on girls. Ive been called by many guys to look things up and I do tons of “can you do me a favor”‘s for them to.

      I’m not even trying to be all “why pick on women” about this; I just really don’t get it (as in, everyone does that) so I don’t quite get the joke.

      But then again, I’m in NYC, where the girls are girls, the men who like men are girls, and the men who like girls are also, unfortunately, girls.
