10 things all twentysomethings say, and what they really mean

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

WE’RE NOT LYING. We’re just being creative with the truth.

1. “I want to stop eating crap and have more fruits and vegetables.”

What they mean: “I’m going to buy a load of fruit and veg in my next Big Shop. I will eat one banana and a handful of spinach and then let them all rot. *shrugs*”

2. “Yeah mam and dad, I’ll make sure to get travel insurance. OK, bye. Byebyebyebyebye.”

What they mean: “I’m just agreeing with this to placate you both. I have no intention of doing the thing you want me to do. OK, bye. Byebyebyebyebye.”

3. “What are my plans? Well, I’m thinking of doing a TEFL course.”

What they mean: “There are no plans. None. Go away.”

4. “I’m going to get myself some nice wine as a payday treat.”

What they mean: “I’m going to get wine that costs €8 instead of €6. This is the LIFE.”

5. “This shirt is hand wash only? Oh, I must do that as soon as possible.”

What they mean: “This shirt will stay at the bottom of my laundry pile for, oh, four months? Then I will give up and throw it into a normal wash. Fingers crossed!”

6. “Sorry, my room is a bit messy.”

What they mean: “My room looks like a bomb hit it. You know that, I know that, but let’s pretend it’s just ‘messy’.”

7. “Yeah, I’ve had my dinner.”

So bad but soooo good!! 8 syns I believe. #sorrynotsorry #sw #swuk #swpregnancy #diet #koka #kokanoodles #weightwatchers #slimmingworld #swsnack #octoberbaby Source: Instagram/slimmingw_diary

What they mean: “I’ve had a spoon of peanut butter and a dry bagel that was just a tiny bit mouldy, but not mouldy enough to throw out. In other words: dinner.”

8. “John has a new girlfriend? I did not know that!”

What they mean: “Of course I know that. I’ve scrolled deep into her Instagram, her friends’ Instagrams, and the Instagrams of their cousins. I know everything.”

9. “Going home to see the parents at the weekend! It’ll be nice.”

What they mean: “I’m going to eat all of their food. I hope they baby me a bit. I do miss being babied.”

10. “One student ticket, please.”
