For children of the 90s, “Friends” has a lot to answer for.

1. We thought we’d be living in a massive loft-style apartment by age 24.

2. With our best friends living just across the hall, on hand to entertain us.

3. We thought dates would be like this.

4. And engagements like this.

5. We thought this was an acceptable chat up line.

6. That we’d spend our twenties hanging-out in coffee shops.

7. Where random strangers would regularly ask for our numbers.

8. That ALL our best friends would be there to witness EVERY milestone in life.

9. That a chick and a duck make great pets.

10. That sleeping with your best friend ends well.

11. That divorce is easy.

12. That this works as an insult.

13. That you can actually get a turkey on your head.

14. That it’s possible to be a part-time parent.

15. And spend all day in a coffee shop, while holding down a full-time job.

17. That this haircut could solve all life’s problems.
