17 Reasons Why Group Chats Are The Actual Worst
Being left on "read" by the entire group is truly heartbreaking.
But if you are in a group chat, you'll know that gutting feeling of waking up to 100 notifications and knowing you've missed out on some great banter.
Occasionally, you end up staying awake waaay past your bedtime just so you don't miss out.
Sometimes you'll drop a HILARIOUS joke, and the only reply you get is a half-hearted "lol."
And sometimes you spend ages typing out the perfect joke, only for the conversation to move on by the time you get it out there.
And there's always one person who takes their admin role way too seriously.
You've probably been added into a few random group chats where you have no idea who anyone is.
Or maybe you've accidentally added a complete stranger into one of your group chats.
And I think we can all agree that family group chats are the ~worst~.
Because you know you're going to get a million notifications in about an hour.
It's way too easy to mix up your group chats, and sending the wrong message to the wrong group can be so embarassing.
If you try to drag someone, you run the risk of being dragged yourself.
For some reason, there's always a lurker that never types anything, but you know that they read it all.
And finally, we all know that there is literally no worse feeling than having EVERYONE in the group chat ignore you.
