The one time of year you and your group of girls go on holidays is so exciting. But with all the alcohol, sun stroke and hangovers, things are bound to go awry. Even if it was the best holiday you have ever had, things will still happen and people will still be annoying. Here are the main things that happen on a girls holiday.
1. People disappearing with the room key
The person who takes the room key has all of the control. They are usually responsible and always there to give the key to who wants to go home first. But, at least for two of these nights, they will disappear. Their phone will run out of battery or be on silent and you will have no clue where they are. Cue your friends standing outside the apartment in the freezing cold at 3am waiting for them to come home.
2. Someone not coming home
It seemed fine and grand when you were drunk, but, when you wake up at 1pm the next day with no text or sign from your friend, you get worried. Thus begins the drama and panic of looking for your lost friend. Turns out she was just with some guy but a text would have been nice.
3. The broke friend
If you are low on cash, why didn’t you work more before going on the holiday or go out less? Now that you’re all away, you have a way of turning it around and making everyone feel bad for you. This means the group will end up footing the bill for you every night or will try to match your budget and spend the holiday eating microwave pasta.
4. Guest list fail
You emailed the biggest nightclub here a week in advance so you guys could get on the guest list and get in no problem. You all arrive to the club and find that you’re not on it or you don’t have one and you can’t get in. Guess it’s off to McDonalds and straight to bed.
5. The shopaholic
There is one girl in the group that can’t control herself around the shops. It is her own money and own business, but, if the consistent shopping means not being able to afford to go out, it is highly irritating. There’s also a good chance she’ll wind up borrowing money from the rest of the group.
6. Hotel room
When you are on a budget, but still want to stay in the best hotel there, it may be a situation where 13 are in one room. This causes chaos. With the hangovers, fights from the night before and sun stroke – because “why would you need sun cream?” – it is a recipe for disaster.
7. Someone staying in and making someone stay with them
There is always that one friend who is too hungover to go out or just not bothered. They have a way of making people feel bad for them and it usually ends with one person staying in with them. This is not okay and is, quite frankly, a major buzz kill.
8. The smiling dog
This is the person that either doesn’t get to travel that much, has never been to your destination before or is just a super positive person and every single thing will excite them. The smiling dog can be very annoying and too positive at times and this can be very irritating when you’re nursing your hangover.
9. The Picky Eater
Nothing will please them and they will turn their nose up at fish and anything that isn’t fried. This can be embarrassing at times. Make sure your picky eaters looks the menu up in advance to avoid disappointment.
10. The Foodie
#paleo #glutenfree #cleaneating – if you have one of these in your group, beware. They will make sure to point out how much sugar or salt is in every meal you eat and their condescending glare will make you want to punch them in the face.
11. Language barriers
If no one in the group speaks the language of your holiday destination, it can get annoying. Make sure at least one member of your group has a dictionary of some sort because once the taxi man thinks you don’t have a clue, those prices will sky rocket.
12. The sleazy waiter
There will always be at least 5 sleazy waiters on your travels and one of your friends will score them all. Maybe it is a fetish of theirs? Who knows? But, it will be awkward for everyone present.
13. The new boyfriend
There will be one in the group that has a holiday romance. Good for them, but when you have a one-roomed apartment and now have a new foreign addition coming around every day, it will get weird.
