Being a woman is usually pretty great, and we love our friends, but sometimes the female life comes with drama. Some women accept drama as a part of life; some of us, on the other hand, are completely allergic to it and dramatic situations seriously annoy us.

  1. Our eyes automatically get ready to roll when a story begins with “So this bitch…” We still listen, because the subject of the story could indeed be a bitch (and the story may be entertaining), but it’s more likely that the storyteller is just being overly dramatic.
  2. We just have to laugh when we’re at a bar/club and a fight starts over something ridiculous. We laugh even harder if we hear clichés like “Come at me, bro!” You’re completely sure that person bumped into you on purpose when the room’s so crowded that no one can walk through it without spilling their drink? Get over yourself; you’re not that important.
  3. We’re so annoyed when a girlfriend is obsessively overanalyzing everything a guy said/did. We know how much it sucks to like someone and be completely in the dark as to how he feels, but we also know that obsessing over it won’t help anything. Just chill out already. More wine? Here; I’ll just hand over the bottle and open a new one.
  4. We’re even more annoyed when she insists that we join her in obsessively overanalyzing his behavior. It’s not that we don’t care; it’s that we know it won’t help and will actually exacerbate her anxiety. We know that she needs to just take a deep breath and think about something else for a little while.
  5. We get irritated when a friend gets mad at us for not calling/texting enough when we’re slammed at work. Everyone has times when they’re working multiple jobs and don’t have enough hours in the day to even catch a nap or a meal. When we’re fighting through that crazy schedule, we may seem to drop off the face of the Earth for a little while, but it’s nothing personal.
  6. We get annoyed when a friend starts talking crap about another friend to us behind her back. Come on now; we’re not in middle school anymore. Don’t be a frenemy.
  7. When a friend complains about her boyfriend wanting to do something fun instead of something girly, we usually agree with the boyfriend. You really wanted him to go shopping with you, but he wanted to go to the shooting range instead? We’re sorry that you feel let down, but his plans sound so much more fun and we understand where he’s coming from.
  8. It drives us crazy when a friend cries to us about her boyfriend cheating, finally leaves him after your talk, and then takes him back again. It drives us crazy because we know that he’ll do it again, and then we’ll have to have the same talk all over again, probably multiple times because she’ll keep on taking him back time and time again.
  9. We roll our eyes when we hear girls talking crap about another girl’s outfit/hair. Once again, we’re adults now. Grow the hell up.
  10. We like having a girls’ night sometimes, but not when we had planned on watching the game and drinking beer. Drama-free chicks tend to have a lot in common with guys, and we can’t do the girly thing all the time. If our team is playing that night and we already bought the beer, we’ll be opting out of girls’ night (unless you want to watch with us and you promise not to talk too much during the game).
  11. We get really irritated when guys dump us and chase after a drama queen after claiming they hate drama. Come on, guys. This makes absolutely no sense. If you really hated drama, you’d prefer an awesome drama-free chick. If we were just too chill to hold your interest, that’s fine, but at least admit that you like drama because you clearly do.
  12. We have to laugh and shake our heads when we see a very public battle unfold on Facebook. You are aware that if you have beef with someone, you can call/text them to talk about it, right? The only reason to battle publicly on Facebook is to add drama by letting the entire world see it. That’s really lame; just stop already.
