Do you hear that silence? It's the sound of your phone finally taking a break from incessant group texts. While group texting can solve a lot of issues and bring a section of your friends together, it can also quickly tear them apart as people get into fights or take three hours to decide on a group activity. Let us all take a break from our phones and go through some of the realest struggles that come with being in a group text. And if you can't read this currently because your phone is blowing up from a group text, don't worry — it will all be over soon.

  1. Texting someone outside of the group chat and then that person calls you out in the group chat.

  2. Getting stuck in a chat that has both Android and iOS phones.
  3. Trying to do something that's actually productive but getting sidetracked because your phone is blowing up.
  4. Deciding to finally do the right thing and eliminate that one friend from the chat.
