1. When every service provider assumes your boyfriend is the one who is paying.

Oh really?

2. Or when you pay but they thank your boyfriend instead of you.

Honestly, na me fuck up.


3. When someone enters a place and greets everyone but not you.

Oh, I’m now invisible? What a wonder.


4. When people shake hands with the guys but insist on hugging you.

5. When people say they are ‘surprised’ you know about football.
