25 Times Being Petty was the Only Answer

Pet·ty: (behavior) characterized by an undue concern for trivial matters, especially in a small-minded or spiteful way.

If you can relate to 5 or more of these you, my friend, are PETTY.


1.  When you suspect someone is lying so you whip out the Nancy Drew skills.


2. When someone says something slightly offensive, you NEVER forget it.

3. When someone tries to cross you but you remind them of who has the power.



4. When bae pisses you off you hit them with that thick, juicy, pettiness.

5. When you utilize the sneaky tactics to get some good-a*s tea *insert tea and frog emoji here ;)*

6. When the petty takes control of your whole being and sets you OFF.


7. When you make sure you have the upper hand so you always remain in control.

8. When you pull some crazy shit just to be “safe”. Oh, the lengths you will go to…

9. When you wake up trying to change your ways but being petty has always been the way of life.

10. When you know you’ve dug in too deep but it’s too late to go back.

11. When you legit have two sides to you and one is a force not to be reckoned with.

12. When you’d do just about anything to put someone back in their lane.


13. When you know the hard, dark truth about someone so you stir the pot just a tad (or A LOT).

14. When you keep read receipts on just to keep people sweating.

15. When you find your petty soulmate and you feel like together you can rule the world.

16. And although they’ll try, their attempts will never come near your pettiness level.

17. When you know it’s best to just be honest with yourself.

18. When you have a very concise list of “valid reasons” for being the way you are.

19. And 99.999999% of the time events play out through your petty behaviour.

20. When your facial expressions tell the world how you really feel about something.

21. You’ve made the executive decision to sit back and watch drama unfold instead of stopping it.

22. You’ve never learned the art of an apology.

23. You’ve been called out more times than you can count.

24. You’ve truly gone the distance to make every second count.

25. Because at the end of the day, you can’t trust ANYONE but your own d*mn self.

Let’s be real though, Collegiettes… we all have a little bit of petty in us. ;)
