19 Things All Chronically Uncool People Know To Be True

You're so uncool that it's ACTUALLY cool. Right? No? OK.

1. Things that everyone knows to be cool somehow skipped you, and you've literally never heard of them.


I'm not even sure the words you're using are English, tbh.

2. There ARE things that you know to be cool, and when other people challenge that, it's OVER.

Oh, I'm sorry, is D&D too REAL for you?!

3. When you get nervous, you tend to show it by humiliating yourself.


4. Your style veers more toward comfort rather than trendy.

5. But there's always that amazing moment when someone compliments your style and for a minute you actually DO feel cool.

"Oh, what, this old thing?" Is that uncool to say?

6. You're comfortable saying no to a lot of "cool" social events, because they'd actually make you miserable.

Oh, there's a hot new club opening? Nope, I'll be home watching X-Files reruns in my Snuggie.

7. In situations where you have to interact with people, your default reactions basically spoil the fact that you're not cool.


8. Not everyone "gets" your unique sense of humor.
