List Rules Upvote everything that you've either experienced or DEEPLY feared happening to you in your groupchat

A quietly surfacing, weird, not exactly new, but prevalent trend is everybody appears to have a “groupchat.” Should you casually bring up your “groupchat” to someone, chances are they will often have a recurring one too, and probably many feelings about it. Since texting already comes with many possible pitfalls, people find that group chats open up even more chances to ruin your good name. You talk about it in-person with the other people in the group, but only when the people who aren’t in the group aren’t around. Also, you simply must remember to respond, or your unread messages will further pile on as your friends repeatedly inquire if "u r alive??"

Like in most social situations, there are exactly one million ways that you can mess everything up and humiliate yourself. In each and every social setting, even sitting on a couch next to someone watching TV, you can make some really serious mistakes. Thanks to technology and social media, that danger is amplified. The next time a group of friends decide they want to start a group chat, send them this list and suggest that starting a book club might just be easier.
