14 Struggles That Are Too Real For Everyone Who Doesn’t Get This Snapchat Thing

December 5, 2016

1. When you see all your friends downloading Snapchat and you’re like

It’s only for vain people, though!

2. When you now realize there are plenty juicy stories there, so you start to rethink

Maybe it won’t be so bad, right?

3. When you download it and see that it’s actually too complicated

It’s more complicated than Twitter, Instagram and Facebook put together!

4. You, when you’ve downloaded Snapchat since 1900, but still have zero friends

Is this how you people are unfriendly?

5. By the time someone finally adds you as a friend, you’re already like

Thanks for helping my case sha.

6. You, when you try to take a snap and you’re looking too ugly

You mean I won’t have bomb snaps today?

7. You, trying to find the perfect lighting for your snap

See stress!

8. When someone now responds to a snap you don’t remember sending

What am I supposed to say, abeg?

9. You, when you mistakenly send a private snap to everybody

Jesus!!!

10. When you see your friends making up and saying ‘I woke up like this’ on their snaps

Who is this one deceiving?

11. You, when someone asks if you’re on Snapchat

I am, but I’m not stable at all!

12. When you see your self on your friend’s snap and you didn’t even know when they took it

They don’t even care if you look fine or not.

13. You, when the one person that posts bomb snaps now refuses to add you back

Kuku kill me!

14. When you see people’s snaps and they’re just looking at the screen and moving their mouths

What is all this mumu behaviour?
