Below are three WhatsApp chats based on real life events. The names are protected for security reasons and have been replaced by pseudonyms. Some of what you read is exaggerated for your entertainment. But mostly not. Most of it is just real life melodrama.
WHATSAPP EXAMPLE 1:
Annabel: Okay so…
*Three dots appear to signify typing from Annabel. Group captured in suspense. All real life events on hold.*
Annabel: I’ve got a crisis.
Yasmin: Whhaaaaaat?! Explain.
Annabel: I think this guy at work fancies me. But idk.
Yasmin: NO!!!!! Why?! Who is it?! What’s he like? Screenshot? What’s his name?
Annabel: I’m not telling you. He’s not actually that fit… You have to know his personality…
Laura: Right, so explain…
Annabel: Well when I went to the toilets yesterday, he held the door open for me and asked if I wanted a coffee. I mean, he was making coffees for the whole team but he didn’t ask them if they wanted sugar and milk, but he specifically asked me.
Yasmin: Eeeeeek! Okay you need to play it cool. Just go with the flow.
Laura: Yeah don’t seem too keen. Maybe tomorrow make him a coffee too? Or is that too much?
Yasmin: NO! That’s way too much. God, can you actually imagine if he KNOWS you like him?!!!! Jeeeez.
Annabel: Hahahah!!! Ahhhh yeah you’re right. That would be horrendous. I will just smile at him when I arrive in the morning, that will probs give him the hint…
