No matter how basic, every decision is the hardest decision.

"Classic '90s jam OR some new hip-hop?! ORRR am I in the mood for some chillwave? Ugh, great, now I'm late."

2. Choosing between a side of fries or a side salad.

"Welp. Hope everyone's comfortable. We're gonna be here awhile."

3. Picking out a birthday card for Aunt Barbara being impossible.

"So, hmm, all right, she's turning 50, so, nothing too serious about her age. I'll go for humor. OR wait — maybe something thematic? But time-out, I always fall for the funny card. Maybe she'd like something sentimental this year..."

And you somehow return home with three pairs of pants, chocolate milk, a blender, and a Cockatiel named Dinky. Oh, and NO new shoes.

8. Having a friend extend an invitation to a show after work when plans haven't been made yet.

Do you lie about already having plans because you know you shouldn't go out on a work night OR do you go out because you haven't been seizing the moment lately? WHY IS EVERYTHING SO HARD?!

9. Hoping that one day, one very fine day, it takes less than three minutes to pick out which kind of toothpaste to get.

There, there. You already know that once you decide, you're going to instantly regret it.

10. Looking for a book.

You know the purse LOOKS cuter, but the backpack is so much more functional. HOW will you ever leave the house?!

13. Selecting a housewarming gift.

BuzzFeed

"Do I get some beautiful fresh flowers? Ugh, but the flowers are just going to die. Can I get away with just giving a bottle of wine? But wait... do The Parians prefer white or red? F&%$!!!"

14. Browsing for any type of hygiene product.

"All right, brain, be my friend for ONCE. I beg of you. Here we go: This one is organic. But this one has 25% more for FREE."

15. Always knowing the answer for others who dare to ask you to help them make a decision.
