22 thoughts every girl has while trying to get the shift

“Have I shaved my legs?”

GIRLS. THEY’RE MYSTERIOUS, sophisticated creatures, aren’t they? It’s so hard to know what they’re thinking over there, on the other side of the dance floor, surrounded by a gaggle of mates.

Here’s a glimpse into what might be going through a girl’s mind when she’s out to get the shift.

(Don’t worry, the boys will be getting their turn too.)

1. Right, we’re at da klurb. Time to do a lap and see who else is here.

2. Jesus, it’s very warm. Am I sweating? Can everyone see that I’m sweating? Oh god.

9. I certainly do not ‘have a smoke’. I’m only in the smoking area to scope out the lads, don’t you know.

10. OH HAYYYY - he’s decent-looking. Might ask him for a smoke, or a light for someone else.

Anything but actually telling him that he’s cute. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
